The Purpose of the Minimalist Home Design Concept

The concept of a minimalist home design aims to increase the value of an entire space (exterior and interior) by reducing everything excessive in the space. Minimalist philosophy represents a practical, dynamic, concise, effective and efficient lifestyle, which is applied in all aspects of life including building architecture, interior spaces, and garden exterior.

Space becomes felt relieved (empty, eternity, meditative atmosphere) according to the main needs of the occupants, optimizing healthy fresh air circulation, and abundant sunlight (rich in color).

Minimalist home design eliminates boredom with the use of many decorative ornaments, accessory trinkets. The character and quality of the spaces created is determined by the existence of space itself, not by furniture and accessories in it.

Minimalism is the translation of a style and pattern of life today that is fast, simple and instant but prioritizes quality. While minimalism is the embodiment of the order of life, mindset and modern idealism.

The use of simple materials (strong simple elements) is not a luxury with expensive materials and natural materials (an element of harmony with nature). Exposure to the dominance of certain (soft and hard) materials will produce different effects.

Detailed design and calculation of structures can save on the use of material with the results of building houses and parks to remain optimally artistic.

The choice of minimalist home design, whether it’s a building facade, the composition of the room, the interior and exterior is undeniably a part of everyday life as well as a mirror of today’s lifestyle. The more specific design choices, the more clearly illustrated the character of the homeowner.

In line with the dynamic lifestyle of the people, the trend of styles that are more concerned with the element of cleanliness is the trigger for the building model more towards a minimalist style, more precisely called modern minimalism. In accordance with the increasingly dynamic lifestyle of the people, the current trend of residential style prioritizes functions with a pattern that tends to be plain.


The facade of a minimalist home building is designed with a pattern of rectangular boxes and vertical lines, as seen in window openings and air vents. Some of the walls are decorated with natural rectangular boxes with striking colors. Minimalist home design is able to display the facade of an elegant and classy building even if only with a simple final settlement.

The facade of a building in minimalist home design is more predominantly square with a flat surface and avoids curved curves and protrusions. Color finishing appears in perfect gray. In general, a minimalist architectural style in Indonesia is tropical minimalism, which is characterized by the presence of wide terraces and openings, because a minimalist style of architecture that is pure does not recognize the existence of a terrace.

A minimalist home style which is currently growing rapidly has its own peculiarities in the appearance of the facade of the building. Often minimalist houses use rocks, game elements of lines and fields, and coloring that tends to be more daring than the Mediterranean and classic architectural styles.
