Project Description

We designed a cluster of tea rooms offering a view of the surrounding scenery and the starlit sky as an tea house connecting people to the stars and nature located in the sanctuary town Bisei for stargazing.

The constellation of tea rooms is also in harmony with the surrounding undulating terrain,thus creating a landscape in which the indoor and outdoor expand seamlessly like the flow of a river under the Milky Way.

Visitors can experience the project as a galaxy of tea rooms built independently as they move in and around them freely. The outdoor space, taken as the space comprised between the tea rooms, the surrounding nature and the starry sky are beautifully intertwined to form a "new landscape" that comes in and out of view through the openings and gaps cut out from the multiple structures.
The loose gathering of tea rooms forms an extension of the landscape and creates an environment enhancing the fun and joy derived from human activities.

By merging together this newly formed belt of tea rooms with the idyllic hills, mountains and starry skies of Bisei, we sought to realize a tea house that reshapes the town's panorama.
