Last year, Mexican architect Juan Carlos Ramos designed the truly unique Pyramid House for a competition that was focused on simple geometry. The residence was inspired by his native state of Michoacán, Mexico, as he keyed in on the sloping nature of his neighboring mountains, as well as ancient temples of the Mayans, in turn abandoning vertical walls.

Pyramid House is a quaint three-story home, which combines clean white walls with partnering glass windows. One side of the pyramid is in turn completely encased in glass, allowing for uninterrupted views both in and out.

When built, the residence will feature two bedrooms, a library, a studio, a bathroom, and a one-car garage. The kitchen, living room and dining room are all positioned on the first floor, while the third welcomes a cozy library.

For another intriguing residence centered around a transparent view, check out this Japanese home with a car garage positioned in the middle.
