Name: House in Setagaya-ku
Designer: Kashiwagi Sui Associates
Location: Tokyo, Japan
House in Setagaya-ku is a minimal home located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Kashiwagi Sui Associates. The home sits atop a 116.96 sqm site, and is constructed mainly of wood. The home was completed November of 2011.
In relation to other Japanese homes, this particular residence is slightly off in the way it was designed; however, in a good way. I can’t really put my finger on it, but I think the minimalism seen in this house is just more free and unconstrained. There are more colors and material choices being used, the second floor has a balcony, and there is less focus on extreme space efficiency. Vote or comment below for your thoughts.
