Elegance, Thy Name Is Simplicity! These Small Houses May Be Minimalistic In Design, But They Are Still Jaw-Droppingly Gorgeous...

Sometimes we do not need to have so many things going on to make a home look special. Less is more and the simpler it is designed, the more appealing it sometimes becomes. But just because it was made it simple, it doesnt necessarily mean its boring. An architect can still play with the color, style and the arrangement of a building or a house even if its small and it doesnt look flashy. We are all used to seeing grand houses with too many decorative furniture pieces, so its truly refreshing to find a house that was styled plainly but still looks magnificent.

The Cabaa Bascuan is a good model for a house that could be described as something simple, yet also is a house that a lot of people will talk about. From a far, it looks ordinary until you look closer, which is when you will realize that it is far from ordinary. It does look like a shed because it was shaped like one, only with a roof that is extending up to the porch and that makes it look like a real house. You know when they say, everything is not what it seems? This house just proves it.

Optical illusion is the name of the game that the architect played when he designed The Cabaa Bascuan. Its windows all look symmetrical the first time you see them, but look closer and you will see that they dont go in line with the roofs position. Even the roof didn't have the typical design. The size is roughly 1800 square feet and can sleep an entire family. It was designed so that children AND grandchildren could come to visit whenever they wanted.
