The oddly formed, four-story dwelling, which appears to be like like a big rectangle reduce at an odd angle, was assembled on the 25-by-100 “cleverly stacked” collectively to create a slanted form, in keeping with Dirt.com.

The website notes that “to assemble the dwelling on the 25-by-100-foot corner lot, the architects placed three containers side by side, and sliced them at an angle before they cleverly stacked them together in a manner that formed the four-floor home’s slanted shape.”
