Japanese designers keep creating minimalist and smart organized houses due to the high prices for houses and land. Japanese architecture firm FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects designed the Promenade House in Shiga Prefecture, Japan, lending a minimalist edge with industrial touches to this busy urban street. The home’s unique industrial edge moves from outside in, where concrete walls and an upper bridge style loft give it a commercial feel. Measuring 89 ft. from end to end, interiors have a galley layout but boast a spacious feel, thanks to their open concept layout and tall ceilings. In place of walls, different living areas are separated using furniture, steps and recesses to widen the space. This home is brimming with amazing, unexpected details, like the floor-level windows and built-in elements. I love the colors play and the mood lights that diversify the interior and make the industrial minimalism look softer.
