• Takasugi-an Teahouse


    Traditionally, Japanese teahouses are not built using designers or architects as they are meant to be simple and not appear ostentatious. Keeping to those principals, Terunobu Fujimori built a humble teahouse for himself. The result is the finest simplicity and someplace we would love to have a cup of tea.

    Takasugi-an literally translates to "a tea house too high"

    Fujimori describes the building as “…it were an extension of one’s body like a piece of clothing”

    Built using simple, local materials the house represents a nest for humans.
