Le Comptoir de Fruit et Légumes in Higashiku
Design: Kotaro HORIUCHI / KHA – Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture INC
Location: YHigashiku, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan
Spa, Kaatsu and beauty salon in Nagoya
This Project is a renovation for a SPA, Kaatsu and beauty salon located in the center of Nagoya, Japan.
We have created counter of 4.2m length in the limited entrance’s space, have secured the minimum flow line for increasing the number of customers standing, have created facade / petit architecture composed with curved surface, while repeating unevenness, so that the counter arranged obliquely may be made to fit the ergonomics of human body.
The counter slides through the wall, while the spiral runs along a smooth curved surface reaching to the ceiling.
People can find their own heights, and therefore their own unique place, given by the new form, allowing them to, in time, feel comfortable in their body and mind.
The form is gently wrapped and it stays on visitors` minds.
