We used a traditional joint system in wood structure construction in Japan called “Jigoku Gumi” to create soft warm human space that feels like a forest or cloud.
The adoption of a 3D structure system enabled the cross section of one member to be reduced to as thin as 60mm x 60mm.
This same type of wood members that are as thin as branches which were used to build this space are used to taste the pineapple cake made from carefully selected ingredients.
