McMansions, move over!

Lucky Drops (Japan)

Built on a trapezoidal plot just 2.5 feet wide at its narrowest point and under 10 feet on the widest edge, the plot’s area certainly required a creative solution. Working in this space, architect Yasuhiro Yamashita chose to make the house as long as possible with sides that slope up to meet at the top. The transparent walls are a clever touch, drawing in sunlight even into the basement.
