In many parts of the world, families will inhabit the same domicile for multiple generations. This architecture by Kei’ichi Irie + Power Unit Studio takes a half-way approach from the literal multiple family dwelling and the single family homes the western world has become so accustomed to. This house is meant for one set of parents and three of their children's families. The orientation of the house is such that they share a common view to the forest, but never to each the other living units. So they can be independent households, but still maintain a very close proximity to the family.
