I am pretty sure that you have heard the word “minimalism” or “minimalist” and I am confident that you know what it means and where to apply it. For those who have not researched much about it, here’s what you need to know about this concept in design.
In this post, I will define minimalism as used in house and interior designs. This article tells us that minimalism is a design approach that is characterized by austerity and economy in decoration. It is mainly characterized by “the less the better” concept. This means that only functional objects are placed inside the house. For the exterior, minimalism is achieved by using two basic colors only which are mainly gray or black with another color that is used as an accent or contrast.
Minimalism is applied in designing this two-storey house. Having a total floor area of 7 x 7 meters or 49 square meters (a total of 98 sq.m. because it is a double-storey), the house has a small area. That’s why it is opted to go up because the lot area is limited and it is not possible to expand horizontally.
So it is basically adding or increasing the space by going upward without compromising the extra lot in the front and back yards.
SO, how much does building this house cost? For the building alone, US$30,000 or 1.5 million pesos is enough. This amount can finish the building. For a livable state, you can add another US$10,000 to cover for the electricity and water system and the furniture and fixtures. However, this amount can still change. IT can be reduced or increased depending on what kind of finishing you want for our house.
