The oddly shaped, four-story home, which looks like a large rectangle cut at an odd angle, was assembled on the 25-by-100 “cleverly stacked” together to create a slanted shape, according to Dirt.com.

The site 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.”
