Architect / Tea Master
At Tsubaki Architectural Design Institute, we are working on architecture that is kind to people and the earth. Whether it's new construction or remodeling, we aim to coexist with the seasonal nature of Japanese architecture, and to operate safely and comfortably surrounded by natural materials, from tea rooms and houses to commercial spaces.
If it is a house, design a house that will lead to a step toward improving environmental problems from the time you build the house to the time you start living.
If it is a commercial space, once you visit it, you will always have an interesting lingering sound in the corner of your heart, and design a space that you will want to visit again someday.
The tea room will be a tea ceremony space if you understand and create the essential tea ceremony in any place and any material, from a full-fledged Kusuan tea room to a simple tea room using a corner of the room.
Caring for the other person is the "thought".
Pour the feelings of the host into a bowl of a once-in-a-lifetime meeting.
The feelings poured into the "bowl" will be a relief for the guests.
From a full-fledged Japanese Tea House to a simple tea room that uses a corner of the living room, if you understand and create the essential tea ceremony in any place and any material, it will become a Japanese Tea House(Chashitsu)
一 想 一 碗
There is a sentence like this in Isoya Yoshida's "Shotosho".
"What is the culmination of residential construction?" "There is no place to praise it especially when it is called to celebrate new construction, and there is no place to praise it. And I feel like I want to go home soon. This is the culmination of housing construction, because it didn't happen, and the house that made me feel good and wanted to stay slurping for a long time. "
I want to continue to create a space with a tasteful home that feels comfortable every time I live.
With Japanese Craftsmanship
Honjo Tatekawa, which is depicted in the 36 views of Tomitake in Katsushika Hokusai, where many woods and craftsmen who process them are vividly depicted, is around Sumida Ward, Tokyo. Together with the craftsmen who inherit the Japanese tradition that still remains, the techniques and gems are incorporated into the architecture.
In addition to Edo Sashimono, we will incorporate Japanese craftsmanship and gems into buildings and works, including Edo tableware, bamboo blinds, tatami mats, Japanese dressmaking, and gardeners in Japanese gardens.
Incorporating this traditional culture, which was also drawn by Katsushika Hokusai, into our daily lives together with the heart of the tea ceremony will convey the feelings of the host (owner) to the guests.
to the world
People are equal and the same vessel in one point, "heart",
which transcends history and culture.
A new attempt to communicate with the heart through the tea ceremony,
transcending national borders and culture

Here, the Gatti family runs a farm that grows olives in their natural state without using any pesticides or fertilizers. Introducing the rare olive oil that is made by squeezing the early picked olives of this rare Gatti family at low temperature.
Tthe "Hokuso" area has been blessed with the abundant water of Kasumigaura and the Tone River since ancient times.
Rice has been cultivated since the Edo period, and in the olden days, rice was supplied to Edo via the Tone River.
We are reclaiming fallow fields in this area and working to regenerate delicious rice and paddy fields.
The delicious rice grown in the Hokuso region has brought a lot of wealth to the region. The homes of rice farmers in the area are also very valuable from an architectural point of view.
Unfortunately, the Hokuso area is also experiencing population outflow and aging, and as a result, these high-value buildings are also being devastated.
We regenerate these old folk houses with our knowledge and know-how as an architect and provide them as accommodation facilities.
