Entry Description

Vernacular x Modern
The site is located near the estuary.
The plan divides the building into three.
The three buildings are kept apart by the courtyard.
The Path runs through the three buildings and the two courtyards, connecting the spaces.
On the flow line of the Path, the boundary between the inside and the outside becomes ambiguous.
The wall is covered with border tiles made from local roof tiles.
Not the use of traditional Japanese architecture, but the use of this place as a resort.
We intended a fusion of architectural vernacular and modern.
