Project for a Japanese-style restaurant that conveys a tea ceremony worldview
We worked on the design and construction of the wall and other interior design elements such as displays of flower arrangement vases and tiny tsuboniwa gardens. Following sukiya-style, we emphasized authenticity when selecting the variety of materials. The stones were placed following a Shoseien garden motif, and the reused paving stones from traditional Kyoto machiya houses brought out character. A pounded-earth wall finished in slightly bright colors and displays using washi paper together produce relaxed, Japanese-style space but with more colors than usual. Artwork uses withered pine or rusty iron to convey a downcast air.
