Pit House!!

The Pit House by UID Architects is so different and quite interesting. The interior is multi-level, rounded and your seat on the sofa gives you a street level view of the outdoors. The main floor of the home is built one meter off of the ground but has a sunken area in the middle of the home that is almost a below ground floor. The pictures will show you what I mean. Love it!

Incredible Starbucks!!

This Starbucks location in Dazaifu, Japan (near a Shinto shrine) is the most fantastic looking Starbucks ever! Now, I am not one to hang out with my laptop at Starbucks but I probably would if the ones here looked like this one. Kengo Kuma and Associates created the design for this location and used over 2000 wood batons to make it happen. So awesome.
