Maison Commode

Here is a place you don't want to live. Maison Commode.

You've really got to wonder what possessed the owner to choose this name. No matter whether someone intended 'commode" to mean a chest of drawers or a toilet, this doesn't conjure up a pleasant living space!

Was it a joke? Probably not, as "commode" means convenient in French. Convenience is a favorite concept in Japan; you see it in plenty of nonsensical ad copy. Heartful convenience life. Your convenient life. Let's convenient.

Convenient or not, Maison Commode has the look of a bathroom fixture, with its rounded corners and metal trim. The cracks around the windows are an added asthetic bonus. I wonder where the toilet paper goes?
