The Window House in Honshu, central Japan by Yasutaka Yoshimura architects is a three storey ‘weekend retreat’ on Sagami Bay with views of Mount Fuji.

Perched on piloti (to guard against flooding) right on the shoreline, the building (whose footprint is just 24 square meters) is designed to create minimum obstruction for the residents nearby, which it does by way of a narrow profile and two huge windows front and back.

It’s not for the shy.
