泉町の工事が始まりました。A house renovation project is going on well.
Based in Kyoto, we are an architectural design consultancy with traditional Japanese carpentry expertise, associated with a fine wood business 銘木店 in Gifu, Japan. We have design/construction experience in New York, San Francisco, Japan and Hong Kong. Services that we offer:
- application of traditional Japanese carpentry techniques in traditional or modern design 日本の茶室建築・空間の設計.
- application of the Japanese spatial planning "ma 間", in relation to human perception of different spaces, functional needs and as construction units in co-ordinating production and design.
- use of natural colors and materials 和の素材と色 (e.g. wood, paper, stones etc.) For example, we admire Noguchi's cominbation between washi 和紙 and stone sculptural shape in creating the akari lamps.
- meeting the challenge of "communication with nature" 自然との対話 --openness and closeness, location and timing.
- cultural conservation and research 文化財の再生、研究.
- architectural/ art event, translation or networking 建築・芸術・文化に関するイベント.
