10.5.9 minimalism 1.jpgWe thought we would spotlight this home, the FU-1 house, today for those of you who love minimalist architecture and decor. While this may not be the most "lived-in" space, it is a gorgeous example of a stark aesthetic...

10.5.9 minimalism 2.jpgWe're pretty sure that we could never live in a home like this one--we simply have too much stuff. Stuff that we'd like to keep! But it doesn't stop us from daydreaming of a life free of clutter and visual distraction. Perhaps this would make a nice second home!

Takao Akiyama designed this Meiwamach home called the FU-1 House. We love the interlacing walls that enclose the garden area. In a crowded neighborhood with each home encroaching on its neighbor, we can absolutely appreciate the need for a more calm visual space.

Take a look at more images of this beautiful home on Totonko.
