Two-story tea house “KAI-RO”
Utilizing the techniques of tsugite-shiguchi joinery, which we have deployed in “KAI-KI” and “KAI-SOU”, we have built an assembly type two-story tea house “KAI-RO” within KAI. The first story is a hearth area that also serves as a machiai waiting room, while the second story is a chashitsu tea-ceremony room that can be converted for various uses. Both are four-and-a-half-mat rooms. Attention has also been paid to design in the spiral staircase that leads to the second floor. “KAI-RO” can be modified in various ways according to the householder’s tastes, for example, it can be used to host hotpot parties or haiku gatherings. Please come and spend some time here.
