A Minimal Villa With An Art Gallery By Makoto Yamaguchi Design

Words

Japanese architecture studio Makoto Yamaguchi Design created a minimalist villa featuring an art gallery in the small town of Karuizawa near Tokyo. The building features a unique shape as well as a floor-to-ceiling glass facade that offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Additionally, there are large windows that face in every direction and provide enough natural light for the gallery space.
