This delightful, small, building is located within the grounds of the Risonare hotel resort in Kobuchizawa, Yamanashi, with good views to the southern Japanese Alps, Yatsugatake peaks and Mount Fuji.
The garden chapel, ZONA, was designed by KDa in 2004. ZONA received a silver award in 2005 from the D&AD Awards (Environment Design & Architecture section).

Working with TBWAHAKUHODO we discovered an old bowling alley in a large 8-storey amusement complex in Tokyo bay area.
Bowling alleys are column free, and after removing the suspended ceiling a double height space with 2m deep down-stand beams was revealed. The overriding rhythm of the beams naturally lead the office to be arranged in ‘bowling lanes’ with circulation between them.
Uniqlo, Ginza, Tokyo, Japan
Date built: 2005
