House of Vision by Kouichi Kimura in Shiga, Japan
In 2008 Japanese designer Kouichi Kimura created a specific property in the outskirts of Shiga, Japan. Located on foot hill area with fields surrounding the entire property, at a first glance the building looks odd, a bit minimalistic, and clean. But a deeper look and you can get a feel for the exceptionally emotional design intended to blend with nature. With a clean interior that exudes a pure ambient feel, the overall theme of the 181 sqm residence is a mixture of modernism as well as an unsurpassable natural ambient. Dubbed the “House of Vision” it’s the elegance of this enchanting project that got us sold in the first place.
