For their latest residence, Japan-based TSC Architects have designed a minimalistic house situated in Hinomiya. Similar to their House in Mukouyama, featured previously on AD, this residence shares the same strategy of a softened aesthetic thanks to a limited, yet thoughtful, material selection and color palette.

More about the house after the break.

The design explores the changing quality of light within the residence as large openings and slatted cedar screens allow natural light to penetrate the open floor plans.  And, the main living spaces open onto the courtyard as a way to expand the interior with views of the sky.

The architects have paid particular attention to detailing, not only with regards to the material, but also when incorporating natural elements – check out the notch in the front roof which allows the tree to reach its full height.
