Named the Puddle, the house has a large, hollowed out chimney that collects the rainwater and directs it into a glass-encased space that can also be entered and enjoyed as a piece of contemporary art. The house was designed by Masaki Yoneda in Matsusaka City for a family of three who wanted to live a life more in tune with nature.
