Naruse Inokuma Architects Minimalist Apartment in Tokyo / Minimalist Interior Design
This minimalist apartment located in Setagaya district in Tokyo is renovation project by Jun Inokuma of Naruse Inokuma Architects and Hiroko Karibe. The dwelling on the third floor of residential concrete building was built with box frame construction, so unable to modify walls architects made adjustments to create an expanse of space while using existing walls. As for the walls, they removed the wallpapers exposing original concrete shell that was also revealing layers of plaster and glue so on some walls they applied additional layers of cement and putty to recreate the mottled wall finish. They used larch plywood for the floors and to built sliding doors that divide the rooms.

Combination of new and old elements and minimal interior design resulted in elegant and sophisticated living space. With open shelving kitchen, architects created utilitarian cooking and storage solution that is aesthetically pleasing. Large custom table made of steel frame and larch plywood became the centerpiece of dining area.
