Minimalist House

There’s a difference between sparse and minimalist, for one example here is the Minimalist House, by Shinichi Ogawa & Associates.

This strip design is built on a 18x3M block, with each area logically divided to get the most out of each living space, without feeling claustrophobic. The hot humid climate of Okinawa where the Minimalist House is built was also considered with eaves designed to be controlled to direct just the right amount of sunlight into the space.

I just love the perfect balance and understanding for the need of space, with the most open area for the courtyard, which is enjoyed by the living room, the dining room and the bedroom without any physical separations. Another minimalist dream home come true.
