1-Vision : Minimalism
Minimalism in Nature
Minimalism ¡s a conceptual art, aesthetically; it offers a highly purified form of beauty which translated in architecture as an extreme form of “Less is more” and “Less but better” refers to building designs that are reduced to the absolute bare minimum of elements.
This form is open and sympathetic to nature, as well as revealing of nature. It is open to nature by allowing natural spaces and materials to come into buildings. Appling the Ecological form by integrating nature and minimalism that will accomplish the most with the least means: extensive natural light, buildings set into topography, renewable energy sources and local materials.
Minimalist architectural design typically uses basic geometric shapes based on the square and the rectangle, harmonious colors, natural textures, open-plan spatial arrangements, neat and straight components, clean finishes, flat or nearly flat roofs and large windows, representing an aspect of the real world as landscape, a person, or reflecting an experience such as an emotion, feeling or reality.
Minimalism is characterized by single or repeated geometric forms; taking the form of sculpture or installation, Lines, parts, shapes, colors everything is simple and minimized, as We all believe in the saying, “Simplicity is beauty,” The goal is that Minimal design and architecture idea is not completely without ornamentation but that all parts, details, and joinery are considered as reduced to a stage where no one can remove anything further to improve the design, thus creating void spaces and a sense of freedom in a way like visual art.
– Minimalism ¡n Architecture
. Pop of color: White is the main color of the minimalist design. It’s clean and matches every color scheme that can be imagined.
. Big windows: Windows are great for natural lighting. It also adds classiness to the whole exterior of the house.
. Simple materials: convey the message of minimalism creating art out of the simplest materials.
. Shape and asymmetry: In minimalism, shape prevails. As the origins of minimalist architecture go back to nature forms which ¡s defined in the following forms:
1- Cubism (Pixels)-derived design movements, it’s all about basic shapes, square, regular and schematic shapes, in digital imaging, a pixel is a physical point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable element so it is the smallest controllable element of a picture represented on the screen. Each pixel is a sample of an original image composing the full image.
2- Geometric forms
2- Architecture Identity
2-1-1- Pixels Cubes
– Type 2: The Pixelated architecture provides flexibility and endless possibilities from articulating plans to sculpting spaces, from hyper dense conditions to opening up to expansive plans. Possibilities with this approach are endless. We could found the pixilation in the window’s arrangements or the moving cubes prominent & inverse. The random distribution of the cubes appears as if it’s a series of pixels.
2-1-2- Pixels Skyline & Soulhette
-Type 1: It could be carefully carved to introduce a three-dimension of pixelated architecture dealing with the sky-lines of the building that reveals the inner life of it. The differing geometries and changing perspectives of the facade express the transformative nature of the villas.
2-2- Geometric Forms
2-2-1- Straight Line & Flat Layers
2-2-1-1- Horizontal Layers
– Type 3: The minimalist architecture is to achieve simplicity, using a simple continuous exterior cladding material and the horizontal clear lines which give the building the layers look but serving the function too. This will be by stripping everything down to its essential quality. This form is open and sympathetic to nature, as well as revealing of nature. It is open to nature by allowing natural spaces and materials to come into buildings.
2-2-2- Angled Intersections Forms
– Type 3: The good minimalist house design can be achieved through simplicity in forms, materials, and details. Using a simple Geometric shapes like C and L shapes, stark surfaces that dominate minimal buildings. The Simple minimalistic details are also cost-effective. Flat stock trim is an inexpensive and easy way to trim out windows and doors and still maintain a minimalist look.

“Pixel “concept apply to many parts of interior and exterior decoration, and allows the flexibility for adapting as one of the best sustainable characteristics of a building.The building allows for different configurations responding to unstable markets and also flexibility that has been achieved.
