“I think we have to get away from the idea of minimalism as a style and instead understand it as a way of thinking about space – its propositions, surfaces, and the fall of light. The vision of comprehensive and seamless, a quality of space rather than forms, places not things. This is why, in its fullest and most satisfying expression, it is not something which you can readily acquire a piece of.” John Pawson, “Minimalism,” The Guardian April 2004.

The above pictures exemplify this quote, they are perfect example of minimalism that is not cold. They show a beautiful symphony of light, shadows, shapes, colors and materials and most importantly scale and space.
