By the ocean, in the Japanese prefecture of Hyogo, stands an evocative residential project designed by architect Koichi Nakai in collaboration with Minotti Tokyo: a contemporary architecture in exposed concrete, accommodating Minotti's furnishing pieces in a setting that narrates a perceptual continuum between indoor and outdoor.
A tree-lined path leads to the entrance of the villa, in the calm provided by the fountain with a bonsai tree enlivening the courtyard: having crossed the threshold, guests are welcomed by a spacious hall with a wide spiral staircase connecting the 3 levels, next to which the Tape sofa by Nendo completes the picture in an original houndstooth look.
The first floor houses the living room, kitchen and dining area, where natural light penetrates through the large floor-to-ceiling windows: here the succession of colours and materials - including stone for the walls and natural wood for the ceiling - generates balanced contrasts that cleverly create a modern atmosphere. The centrepiece of the scene is the dining table, surrounded by the refined design of the Fil Noir dining little armchairs by Christophe Delcourt, with leather body and fabric seat.
The interior space stretches towards the horizon through a terrace with wide eaves, boasting an infinity pool, where the elegance of the Quadrado table by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27, combined with the Tape Cord Outdoor seats, offers perfect lounge atmospheres for relaxing in the open-air and sharing moments of conviviality. The terrace also features a panoramic corner, accompanied by the Patio seats, where guests can enjoy an enchanting view.
In perfect harmony with its splendid natural setting, the villa reflects the tranquillity of the ocean, combining comfort, charm and timeless elegance.
