Design Boom have featured this 6-story house in Japan, designed by native architect Yo Shimada, who is part of the collective Tato Architects. The interior is typical of Shimida’s style, who unafraid of embracing minimalism and large open spaces. The shapes Shimida often carves out in his designs are also inspiring, as he often places walls and ceilings on unconventional angles.
Within the individual rooms, Shimada employs wood panelling not just on the floors, which is a running theme within the house, but also on the walls. This effectively allows these individual living spaces to appear partitioned from the open, white-walled vastness of the house, allowing you to have a sense of privacy that can be hard to find in this style of minimalist design.
