Name: KDR House
Designer: International Royal Architecture
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Another one of my favorites over at Skim Milk, KDR House is a minimalist home located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by International Royal Architecture. The kitchen, bathroom, and stairs are congregated within the center of the home with a completely open floor plan surrounding this space. The architects kept a simple palette of materials used throughout both the exterior and interior.
The floors are made with smoothed concrete while the center volume consists of plywood. The staircase, which is situated in the center of the home, has a contrasting wood color that matches with the floors on the upper level. A number of skylights are positioned through the space that penetrate through the upper level into the ground floor.
