FORM / Koichi Kimura Architects designed this “House of Diffusion” residence in Shiga, Japan. The company specialize in minimalist house design and most houses designed by them are painted in one color outside. Their other work was minimalist brown house while this one is white. The house structure is simple but thought-out. Its windows are positioned to afford views of the nearby hills but protect privacy from neighborhood. The interior of the house is a combination of clean white lines and walls with black or natural wood insertions. Everything looks quite minimalist but without losing in comfortability.

    If you’ve seen my other posts, you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of white and cold in a home. However, I think this was really well done. I think this provides a very pleasant ambiance. I couldn’t live in a place like this, though. I couldn’t keep it that pristine (no books, laptops, magazines, or toys laying around), and that would just ruin it. And I’m not sure I understand all of the living space from the photos, but I’m betting that’s just because of the angles of the photos.

    Yep, some photos are taken to show only the beauty without showing other. What kind of house desingns do you like?
