The Y7 House in Japan was built by Architect Show, and works with a very minimalist design. Because the surrounding views were so incredible, this became the driving force between every detail of design within the house, resulting in a very simplistic structure.
Inside the house, steps were taken to reduce clutter in terms of the lighting and electricity. This way the residences could focus on the outside areas and relax in comfort. The Y7 House is not big by any means, but it serves the purpose of giving a refuge from the elements while offering the perfect platform for taking in the vistas below.
Architect Show did a great job with focusing on what mattered when building this house, which is clear with the minimalist design.
