@javi.mahal – Great. Maybe you should reevaluate your definition of the term “minimalism”. I could define the term “house” to mean some sort of floatation device and then come around making all sorts of pointed, ridiculous, semantic arguments, but I don’t think it’d do much to further the conversation.

Although this house is stunning, I guess Asian-influenced design simply isn’t “me.” I greatly admire it, it just doesn’t seem as “livable” and comfortable as other styles… but the location is spectacular and the execution is immaculate.

Sorry, but in my opinion this is not “minimalist” in any sense of the word. It has lots of “livable” area, as the house has copious amounts of open space with lots of volume to distribute objects within. Beautiful house, gorgeous location no doubt. Minimalist, I think not.

I would move into this home today! The Asian touch, combined with the use of natural light and the influences of the landscape seem to be a perfect fit. How beautiful!

I agree – clean, simple, beautiful. Minimalist works for me – but nevertheless – simply amazing.

ok javi.mahai; I partially agree, though this is relavistic to a sense. Please provide examples in support of your argument.
