A Minimal House With A View By FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects
- Charmaine Li
Designed by Japanese architect studio FORM/Kouichi Kimura, ‘Scape House’ is a minimal and versatile home located in Shiga, Japan that consists entirely of quadratic forms. In contrast to conventionally large and open windows, the architects opted for narrower ones, which were strategically positioned to create openness while maintaining privacy in the home. The house, which is built on a hill, offers views of the lake and is filled with natural light during the day.
