  • What distinguishes a minimalist house made of stone and concrete?

This minimalist building has two floors and rises elegantly. The construction is so simple that it is noticeable from afar. The house serves both as an apartment and as an office. The founder of Gosize is also the design architect of Go Fujita. He built it for himself, taking into account his building and life philosophy. And according to his needs and desires. The architect has brought home and office under one roof and placed the emphasis on simplicity on the inside. Here, minimalism celebrates its grand triumph in the living room. In addition, the Architect has numerous connections to make with the outside world.

The connection between indoors and outdoors is paramount for a minimalist home in Japan.

The so-called Japanese "Doma" is located on the ground floor, which is mainly built of natural stone. Translated into German, this means "dirty place". This is basically an interstice found in both traditional and modern Japanese homes. Doma actually represents the connection between inside and outside in the Japanese home. The Japanese use the area primarily as a cellar, kitchen or storage space. In our example of a minimalist house in Japan, the doma is a tiled room that is very clean. In addition, it opens outside to a private Japanese garden. The interior spaces are connected to the exterior to be closer to nature. They are filled with natural light and the owners of this minimalist home can enjoy a beautiful view every dayThe courtyard is designed with smooth black tiles and natural stones. There is also a tree surrounded by green ferns.

In the design of this inner courtyard, no savings were made on natural materials. The walls are made of concrete, the floor is covered with large stone slabs in light gray and raven black tiles. These contrast strongly with each other. Nevertheless, it doesn't look lifeless there. In this courtyard, which is also designed in a minimalist style, one notices the traditional elements for every Japanese garden. For example, a water feature and some plants that change little depending on the season. The sound of the water is soft and calms the mind. This quiet and balanced atmosphere in the inner courtyard is fully in line with the Japanese philosophy of life. It also offers the opportunity to get closer to nature and to live in harmony with it. This also provides/enables the connection between the individual “I” and the outside world.

This courtyard is easily accessed via sliding glass doors and allows owners to enjoy privacy, natural light and fresh air outside
