Japanese designer Kouichi Kimura created an ideal house for young couples and their dogs. He is known for his minimalistic, clean line design.

This particular piece of architecture is an amazing looking property, which blends in with nature. At the same time, the white interior exudes a peaceful ambient feel.

The abundance of dark wood throughout the house, from the walls to the furniture, ads a mixture of modernism and traditional Japanese design.

The elegant, budget-friendly space with low windows brings the outdoors in, giving the space an airy feeling. The designer used all of the space creatively, like utilizing the area underneath the house for the dogs. The property definitely reflects a young and fresh lifestyle.
