Prize(s)3rd Place in Interior Design / Renovation
Entry Description

This building was built by a master of constructing Japanese traditional houses and tea-rooms.He beautifully completed this in his original way and we believe we have to preserve what he achieved to respect his philosophy and we kept such parts as much as possible.
We arranged stylish elements to match Japanese four seasons and tried to fuse Japanese and Western designs: We use gray stone and granite for bathtubs and washbasins. We use natural stones where the skin touch directly.
The location influenced our design so as to keep the view as minimum as only sky and ocean, so we designed the black tile pool for the rooftop of the extension building to unite the sky and the sea. Additionally we produce more unusual and dramatic time by aligning the flames against water.
