Jin Otagiri is a Japanese architect who has designed this minimalist-structured house.

The house is stark white with seemingly little design and style. However, once you take a closer look, the interior of this unusual home is full of stagnant angles and geometric shapes to add an aesthetically pleasing quality to a simple design. The dark wood floors contrast nicely with the white interior and adds a bit of dimension.

Implications - This house is the perfect example of how a simple, minimalist idea can create such a strong and unique aesthetic that the house takes on a futuristic aura. Not only does this combine the consumer desire for originality with modernity, but it almost certainly ensures that visitor's will be impressed by the house's upscale but not overdone look.
