Why would anyone want to live in a house without windows? – you may ask. But these kinds of residences are not odd things for some Japanese people. Extremely dense urban neighborhoods in cities like Tokyo are not conducive for resident’s privacy. This is why some of them choose such radical solutions as houses without windows. Windowless residence can be an oasis of privacy and tranquility.
