The home is often associated with traditionalism, and this home designed by Takashi Okuno Architectural Design Office takes that association seriously. The studio designed the Japanese house according to traditional principles, including a Ryurei-style tea room in the center of the living area.
The area in which the home was built previously served as the Matsuyama Domain, where the lord of the region would spend his vacations. The mountains that tower around the region make it timeless and scenic. In light of that, the Ryurei-style tea room is all the more appropriate. Ryurei rooms are purposefully designed to facilitate the ritual of tea preparation and presentation -- a crucial aspect of traditional Japanese culture.
This home shows the value that people still place in the importance of tradition.
