There are plenty of minimalist house designs in Japan. Although the house designed by Datar beat them all. This family private house is all about clear lines and simple white color. There isn’t anything not white outside so it will stand up even near other minimalist Japanese houses. If floors was made white too than without furniture you could miss the wall and hit it while walking around the house. I can’t imagine somebody live there because such minimalism looks not alive but the house is very interesting from architect perspective.
