tiny house

Cha-shitsu, Japanese tea house, is small but this one is extraordinary. It's a reproduction of the national heritage Tai-an which was built by Rikyu more than 400 years before and has only two tatami mat room. I had a chance to enter and feel the space inside of this temporary built house for an exhibition with my friend, but I felt comfortable and spacious than I had imagined.


The room was quite dark since the sun light was controlled intendedly. ( related page is here )The picture below is one of the windows seen from outside, and you will notice even the shadow is also designed by this bamboo grid.


It is hard to see from this angle, but the thin gable is not symmetric and slightly leaned to the right side. It is said the house is designed from the inside, not from the outside. ( related page is here )
