Look closely, and you'll see that this arch house in Tokyo is actually two structures. Designed by Akio Nakasa of Japanese firm Naf Architect & Design, the pair slanted homes come together to form an arch with a slight gap at the top. Grandma lives in the single floor residence on the left, while a couple and children live in the one on the right.
