Toshimitsu Kuno of tele-design and Tomoro Aida of Aida Atelier have recently completed Periscope House in a dense residential neighborhood of Zushi, Kanagawa.

In order to maximize living conditions while keeping in mind site-specific constraints, the architects proposed a plan in which 3 rooms would poke their heads out above the level of homes like a periscope on a submarine. Very cute idea! I always wanted to live in a submarine.
