The concept of minimalism is gaining popularity over the years as a design philosophy and a way of life. Many people are now adopting it and they claim that they live peacefully with it without excess baggage.
In architecture, minimalism is all about achieving a design that promotes simplicity of form, space, decorations, color, layout, and details. To achieve this, the available space must be used strategically to convey the message of order and simplicity.
Minimalism is conveyed in this house that we are featuring on this issue. The floor plan has a total area of 52.64 square meters sitting on a 120 square meters lot.
