Jugetsudo Kabukiza is a café that serves Japanese green tea which faces the rooftop garden of Kabukiza. Pieces of bamboo with a varying amount of space between them were used to softly partition the space, and the ceiling was “bent” with pieces of bamboo that stick out under the roof eaves into the Japanese garden to create space that resembles Origami in which the garden is connected with the inside. Multiple overlapping layers of bamboo with differing densities created space like a bamboo groove that softly connects Kabukiza and the garden.
