Here's another project from Schemata Architecture Office, this time a house built at 63.02° to the road.

The house in Nakana, Tokyo, was completed in December and has a floor space of 71.4 m2

Here's some text from Schemata Architecture Office:

--
63.02°is built on a built up area in Tokyo. This small building is used as SOHO and an apartment for rent.

This building is cut on the axis line inclined to a front road by 63.02°. The window in this building concentrates there. You can see the intersection by seeing the outside through the windows.

In front a splendid cherry blossoms tree stands. It is only fine sight in this building that is acquired in the center.

    stunning, but he must really hate his neighbour.

    No sense of comfort, enclosure, safety, warmth, refuge. Those rooms are goldfish bowls. esp those on the top floor, with the pitched soffit pushing u out towards the edge/ glazing.
    Only the most strange person would feel comfortable here, perhaps there are a lot of those in tokyo?
    Very strange way of responding to context, ie, not responding to it at all?
    Anyway, looks quite striking.
