Brooklyn-based design team squirtstudio, aka SQST, has envisioned a traditional Japanese straw roof house in the shape of the Wu-Tang Clan‘s iconic “W” logo. The artistic sanctuary is designed to be built with ancestral methods and woodworking techniques, while the layout plan features all of the components of a traditional Japanese living space, such as a genkan (entryway), ima (living room), yokushitsu (bathroom) and daidokoro (kitchen). The space will include modern features such as a recording studio and an ample supply of Marshall amplifiers so the Wu-Tang Clan can create music in the tucked away sanctuary.
