Penguin House – Tiny Japanese Micro Home For Small Living

Effective Living > Housing > Small House Society

Summary. The Penguin House uses very innovative engineering and architectural design to achieve a better use of space.

Through creative channeling of light, and specializing designing of walls, hallways, and windows, the home is illuminated using natural light rather than being dependent entirely on artificial lighting.

Notice in the picture here that steps are open to allow air flow and light to pass through.

Video. The National Geographic Channel provided the video tour below.
