Sarou Houmura, Japan – Sapporo Architecture

Sarou Houmura

This architecture located in the city of Sapporo is a building with both cafe and gallery. Instead of Kyoto style Japanese taste, a sense of beauty from the modern northland was sought.

To produce a space with good margin by trimming off what is redundant. To provide an appearance of depth by limiting the amount of light. To provide an opening for viewing the snowscape is important. To undergo a long approach, a sign of spirituality.
