Minimalist Japanese Residence Making the Most of a Narrow Site: House F

Architect Kenji Ido of Ido, Kenji Architectural Studio completed House Fin, a minimalist Japanese residence located in Osaka. The house was especially envisioned for a couple in an urban narrow site, neighbored by a mixed-use area where small houses, small factories, and small office buildings coexist. The clients requested a garden in the south side of the site and decided to make a three-level building overlooking the green spaces. They aimed at a quiet, comfortable space, with plenty of natural lighting and a certain feeling of security.

The minimalist Japanese design approach can be observed throughout the interiors of this Osaka home. With walls painted in white, a feeling of space was subtly achieved. The wooden stairway, shelves and doors add a warm touch. It is truly inspiring to see how the architect managed to transform a 53 square meter surface into a perfect home for two.  [Information received via e-mail by Architect Kenji Ido; Photography by Takumi Ota]
