Blank Walls on 3 Sides? Problem Solved

But inside, the quirkiness becomes clear, as the building's dimensions are revealed to be almost square. To solve this challenged layout, the owners have created one of the more distinct houses in the city.  Enter the home and be greeted by the kitchen and dining room, the living room the floor above that, then the master bedroom topped by the second bedroom."  Full article with slideshow of photos and floorplans here.
