Kengo Kuma and Associates as Architects

Context

The project concerns the interior design of an atelier which was used as by an artist, on whom we realized a new space of work as archives.


Concept

These existing spaces intended in office/archives which are used by the artist reminded us first to use of the natural light coming from skylight. We created this project by using the panels of the expanded metal and throwing of the Japanese paper pulp which will give a soft atmosphere to the space of former industrial inspiration. The workspace will be lit by the natural light through this expanded metal.


The screens were prepared in western France by Yasuo Kobayashi, a washi manufacturer, whose studio is in Niigata. During the process of washi making, the mesh sheet is soaked in a starchy liquid made from kozo (mulberry) and sunset hibiscus. Various levels of transparency were achieved by controlling and adjusting thickness of the solution and the way washi is dried.
