Modern minimalist house with garden in Nishimikuni, Japan.
A minimalist, one-story house designed by the famous architectural design firm Arbol for an elderly couple who wanted spacious, bright rooms and a lot of privacy. This small building is conveniently located between other multi-storey residential buildings in Nishimikuni, Osaka. Inside this house with it's private and self contained atmosphere you can recover from the stress of everyday life in this big Japanese city.
Minimalist home in the heart of Osaka
This single storey house is covered with vertical strips of cedar wood to protect those inside from prying eyes. The door is covered with wood and practically invisible.
The main entrance is located under a canopy
The house has a living area of 91.70 meters square and is modern and minimalist. A smooth transition between interior and exterior spaces is achieved by using large Dutch sliding doors and windows that let plenty of light into the house.

What is a minimalist Japanese style house without a little Japanese garden? The landscaped garden is L-shaped and it provides a comfortable place to retreat and relax. The landscape design was created by Toshiya Ogino.
Through the house is a long corridor
The wooden furniture blends with the floor and a palette of neutral colors creates tranquility.
