 The modern minimalistic Japanese architecture is simplistic, stylish and carrying many different messages. The intelligent decisions are everywhere – from the idea, to the projection, design and decoration. In the boundaries of a calm Tokyo neighbourhood the architect Ogawa has created a project of a house in the traditions of the modern minimalistic Japanese architecture, which grabs the attention with its two contrasting faces: a closed, intimate family home and an open side with an open-air green house in the top storey.

A tall, stained-glass wall on the main façade lets the sunlight in the vestibule, which leads to the living-room. The living-room is furnished entirely in a white minimalistic interior design. Apart from the whiteness, the other colour present is that of the wooden chairs and the table, which are connected in an interesting visual way to the real tree in the inner yard, which can be seen in full size thanks to the glazed façade. On the north side there is a large yard, which corresponds to the bed-room and the children’s room on the second storey, while the inner yard is near the sanitation rooms. The moderate sized rooms, completely enclosed to the neighbourhood, are indirectly linked to one another, which creates a feeling of internship and provides a spacious surrounding, good ventilation and flow of light. The excellently chosen and equally spread in the entire area synthetic lighting provides the comfort of living during the dark part of the day and night cycle.

Unlike them, the third mansard storey, which is glazed, and the upper terrace are entirely open towards the city and they represent the overt face of the house towards the surrounding world.

The modern minimalistic Japanese architecture is like the contemporary Japanese country – it has many intriguing faces, some of which it generously shares with the others, while the personal, the intimate ones it keeps to itself.
