Takao Akiyama Minimalist Home in Meiwamach
Here is a house with clean lines, rectangular forms and ceiling-to-floor glass windows that give the home a pure and minimal feel. I definitely like the Takao Akiyama Minimalist Home in Meiwamach because it has fresh and white forms that structure the design starkly contrast with the closely surrounding homes in the neighborhood.
This house stands out from the distance. When you look at the buildings in the block you can see houses, houses, houses and then suddenly this Minimalist home by Takao Akiyama. It is white to describe it in the first place and it shows its simplicity and purity. And white is the colour of choice both for the exterior and for the interior design.
And the designer uses it cleverly in combination with some colourful details in order to obtain the maximum visual impact. The white little stairs look like they are floating and a simple red flower pot on the white table is more obvious than a hundred decorative objects in a coloured house.
The house’s beauty is in the details that are carefully arranged in order to get the overall effect. The house opens up directly in the interior garden that has nothing but grass and is surrounded by natural pebbles. There is natural light in the house thanks to the wide windows but also to the whiteness of the walls. The minimalist style is obvious, but fits the whole picture perfectly.
