This is a renovation project for a factory of a long-established soy sauce manufacture, Hamada Shoyu, which has a 200 years history. By inserting delicate lighting equipment and furniture made with thin lines and surfaces within wooden frames that are complicatedly jointed with members added each time the generation changed, I created a harmony between the past and the present. For lighting, we arranged only hanging glowing acrylic sticks with a diameter of 10 mm, and chairs were fully covered with fabric from the seat surface to the legs, reducing the visible materials to contrast the heavy texture with the old materials of the Japanese hut. In addition, I left the old clay walls on purpose on the other side of the renovated walls, exposing mesh called Takekomai in order to contrast the heavy clay wall and the delicate Takekomai.
