Takashi Yamaguchi Designs a Beautiful, Crisp, Clean Minimalist Home

The 'House in Ise' by Takashi Yamaguchi is one of the cleanest, simplest architectural pieces I've ever seen. There aren't irregular shapes or curves in the design. Instead, Yamaguchi takes a simple approach with a cuboid shape and paints it in white, which reflects natural lighting beautifully. The interior emulates the outside by staying within a similar color theme, so the home stays true to the architect's minimalist vision.

Takashi Yamaguchi's design may be simple, but its environment highlights its beauty much like an empty canvas that soon occupies a painting.
