This beautifully art directed monastry to minimalism was built by Form/Kouichi Kimura Architects. Strong and bold it cares not what the neighbouring homes look like by trying to fit in as it takes it’s stand by a local canal. And likewise, it feels like a home for a limited but fanatical few. Industrial and concrete it goes against all we know by having fewer windows than one would expect and eschewing the net-curtained touchy feely.
It is individual, unapologetic and stylishly grim.
