Tatami room with shadow and tranquility

Japanese-style room

In the Tatami room next to the entrance, there is an alcove with a iron pole in the middle. The deep texture of iron, which is simple yet has a strong presence, help creats a unique atmosphere with natural objects such as plants and minerals. In addition, the walls of the alcove are made of a material that reflects the lighting and shines brightly, giving it a luxurious feel. Here is where you can appreciate the beautiful shadows and tranquility to your heart's content.

Materials to the finest detail


The alcove with the iron pole, denim-rimmed foldings of the Tatami mats, beautiful green garden planting, Japanese Washi wallpaper, kitchen tiles with a rare glaze texture, and flooring that combines lattice and acrylic that sheds light on the first floor, retro glasses, and so on. Carefully selected materials add flavor to each space inside the house.

Peacefulness at the Japanese & Western style living room

Living room

While firmly inheriting traditional Japanese elements such as the magnificent goronbo wood beams and Japanese Washi wallpaper, the wooden flooring and retro bracket lights help the furnitures with both Japanese and Western tastes fit comfortably. The kitchen island allows you to enjoy cooking and gathering with family and friends for some leisure family time.
