A functional minimalism characterizes Kimura’s work. A sense of openness and privacy is achieved through careful slicing and layering of wall elements, light and shadows, volumes and spaces. Moreover, the house has various parts of open space. The main purpose of this house is to be a studio or a gallery. A potential candidate for the house could be a photographer or an artist. At the same time, it can become the residence of the artist. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
