もとは運送会社の倉庫で木が一本もなかったところに、ヤシを始め800本の木を主に鹿児島から持ってきて森をつくりリゾート感を演出。エントランスのソテツは300年前のソテツで、小豆島で譲りうけた。非日常感を演出するためにボリュームのある森を作り、外の世界と縁を切った。また、地元では見かけないような珍しい樹木・花などを意識して配置。

The project site was the former location for a shipping company comprising of multiple warehouses and devoid of trees. The site was transformed into a bridal facility with a resort-inspired landscape through the help of 600 palm trees primarily from Kagoshima. The sago palm planted at the entrance is over 300 years old that was brought in from Shodo Island. In an effort to design a more extraordinary space, a dense vegetated area was installed to screen the inside from the outside. To enforce the effect, we carefully selected rare flowers and trees.
