The front view of a minimalist house can look amazing and become an icon in the environment.
Then how does an amazing minimalist front look for your dream home? This article will present 10 examples of a cool minimalist home front for your dream home. Hopefully, it can be an inspiration to come up with various creative ideas for other cool minimalist front views.
1). Cool front view of natural stone
The simplicity of the natural lines of natural stone is very suitable as an element to form a minimalist home exterior and interior appearance. The dark red and black colors of andesite rock look cool with the gray of the temple stone. The front and side views of AL House are getting cooler with the lights emitting from the minimalist windows.
2). Unique front view with asymmetrical shape
The unique and cool front view of the F + W House is influenced by its location on a cul-de-sac at the end of the road with a unique tread shape. The play of geometric shapes of building masses utilizes four axes. Large and tall windows are a source of natural lighting, as well as the vertical axis of the house, and a counterweight to the horizontal lines of the structural beams and the elongated windows.
3). The application of feng shui to a meaningful front view
The front view of the KBP house is influenced by the demands of the feng shui application, especially the slope of the facade which must be 3240. In addition, the rules for the location of the main door and its size also affect the interior and exterior. Instead of being confined by these very strict rules, Erwin Kusuma answered them through an attractive design with access to natural lighting and air circulation.
4). The front view looks elegant with simple geometric shapes
Januar Senjaya & Filani Limansyah from ADDO Architecture make use of the shapes of beam slabs to direct sunlight into space. High slabs of blocks dominate the front of the house, displaying a functional minimalist architecture, while simultaneously appearing elegant with simple geometric shapes.
5). The gable as an accent front looks charming
The front view of the PRV B66 is an example of a cool minimalist front house that is modern and simple. A unique blend of urban, industrial, and rich tropical minimalist elements from the bricks on the garden walls and the canopy blocks. The existence of tropical elements is strengthened by the fusion of natural lighting and circulation, as well as gable accents that make the front look even more charming.
6). Cantilevered for a tropical eco-friendly front view
Tropical environments with quite high rainfall, rain accompanied by wind, humidity, and lots of sunshine, need to be responded to through good design. SUB responds to this challenge with a large cantilever to prevent rainwater from entering through the window. This concept creates a building that looks large and disproportionate, but trimming a few corners makes this house slimmer and harmonious with its surroundings.
7). The house looks cool even though it is adjusted to environmental regulations
Environmental regulations that require a house without a fence become a security and privacy issue. The solution lies in the lower facade, which forms a protection with few openings. However, if needed, the wall panels on the ground floor can be transformed into large doors that open wide. This multi-functional wall panel becomes a protective wall, which, if needed, can be a link between indoor and outdoor.
8). Functional hanging canopy for a futuristic front view
Hanging canopy made of mild steel, 4 meters long, covering the Villa WRK carport. This canopy displays a futuristic impression by utilizing the latest technology for long spans. The dark color of the canopy blends nicely with the ivory limestone on the fence. The lines on the canopy reinforce the beauty of a cool minimalist front.
9). The front view of a minimalist house is cool because it is in harmony with nature
Breathing House stands on a 315 m2 triangular footprint at the corner of the road. The modern minimalist look is presented in the form of a mass that has openings where it is really needed, the dominance of white, the uniqueness of the glass walls on the upper floor, the lines of a minimalist garden retaining wall.
10). Take advantage of natural colors so that the front looks cool and natural
Padupadani Architect combines dark brown, black on the exposed structure, as well as the fresh green color of banyan bonsai and lee Kuan yew plants to create a minimalist green architecture concept house front. These natural colors are applied to the mass of the checkered building, resulting in a unique architectural work that blends with nature.
The front view of a minimalist house will be cool because every element is functional and placed in the right position. Minimalist house front view does not mean a limitation of design ideas, but rather the placement of each element in the highest place; equality between mass form, aperture, material, and color that blends perfectly with the site and its environment. So… Let’s keep working with unlimited creative ideas!
