Sky house

Kiyonori Kikutake who was known as one of the core member of Metabolism architects in 1950's-80's also designed his own house. It is called Sky House named after the floating structure as the miniature model pictured below. The main part of the house is floating from the ground with four flat shaped pillars and creates spacious piloti. This house stands in Tokyo even now after few room modules added beneath based on his original "metaboric" plan.
