Immersed in the exclusive residential neighbourhood near the Asahi River, with a view of Okayama Castle in the Japanese city of Okayama, the architecture of this private residence is inspired by the owner's desire to create a unique home that would enhance the privileged position in which it is located and in which the sophisticated and welcoming design of Minotti's furnishing pieces stands out.
The villa is a domestic oasis developed on two floors, where each environment is designed to blend, in perfect harmony, with the beautiful outdoor landscape. The ground floor is conceived as a large volume, a succession of living and dining areas that flow without stopping into the natural outdoor area it looks on to.
The multifaceted Roger seating system designed by Rodolfo Dordoni is the centrepiece of the living room, proposing a new interpretation of the space with back-to-back elements: an original composition facing onto two different areas that offers corners for relaxing when complemented by the Fynn armchair by GamFratesi and the Superquadra coffee tables by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27, or moments for sharing when combined with the Linha Dining table, characterised by its generous dimensions but distinguished by an elegant visual lightness, paired with the Fynn Dining little armchairs.
The master bedroom alternates the area dedicated to resting with a home-office corner, where the clean, rigorous lines of Marcio Kogan / studio mk27's designs stand out: from the Daiki Studio armchair, inspired by the Brazilian architect's passion for Japan, to the Superquadra family of storage units which completes the furnishings with its minimalist design. The room dialogues with the outdoor living area, where the warm and contemporary lines of the Quadrado seating system by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 create a cosy relaxation corner, designed for private moments.
Conceived to offer year-round views of the surrounding nature, the villa embodies the perfect balance between interior and exterior, in which Minotti's furnishing pieces design original and comfortable spaces with no apparent boundaries.
The refined style of shapes, colours and wooden materials capably expresses the modern taste of sophisticated manufacturing know-how, in perfect harmony with the elegant Japanese style of the landscape.
