House for a Photographer

FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects have designed the ultimate minimalist dream house for a Japanese photographer. Located in Shiga, Japan, "House for a Photographer” is a minimalist architecture project used as a residence, atelier and a gallery of a photographer. The building is made of mortar and galvanized steel sheet which reflects dull light, making it look massive, and is laid out to be accommodated within the L-shaped lot, standing facing the shrine on the opposite side. Inside you´ll find a studio and all-white gallery space, and beautiful wooden accents to give the space both a clean and cozy feel. The open plan layout increases space, while also taking advantage of natural light, essential for a photographer. Photo shooting equipment, vintage furniture, musical instruments, and artworks are placed here and there, blending in with the space. check out more stunning photos below.

Design: Kouichi Kimura | Photography: Yoshihiro Asada, Norihito Yamauchi
