This concerns the renovation of a thirty-year-old house. The project aims to seamlessly integrate the old building with the new by using a metal grid on the exterior wall. This creates new opportunities while respecting the current time and space. The design concept is focused on “retreat forward”.
The clubhouse is a themed space dedicated to Zen and tea, two closely related elements. In a city where isolated places with green forests and bamboo are rare, this space offers a peaceful and serene atmosphere.
With steam emanating from the hot teapot and the aroma of tea filling the air, meditation enables one to achieve a Zen state of mind. Everything is in place to provide an immersive and soothing experience. Attendees can calm their minds and communicate with their hearts in a Zen atmosphere where movement transforms into stillness.
