The Ginan House by Keitaro Muto Architects is a residential piece of architecture that has slanted walls, which makes the home into a wedge shape. The exterior of the home is covered in gravel, which contrasts with the mostly white interior. The gravel textured exterior walls actually continue into the inside of the abode in certain places, offering a stark contrast to the white interior walls.

The Ginan House features a small swimming pool and an interior metal bridge that offers access to a walk-in closet and a bathroom. The home owners instructed Keitaro Muto Architects to keep the house small. Built on a long and narrow lot, the structure looks like an extension of the gravel garden that covers the rest of the lot.

An interesting blend of different modern design elements and minimalism, the Ginan House is a quaint and quiet space for reflection.
