2013/ Product/ Kanagawa




Every year when it becomes summer, a seaside houses appears in the calm and beautiful Hayama coast. These houses are built using the local bamboo, are dismantled and scrapped when summer is over. So we proposed to build a garden fence with this scrap material. The bamboo rings which are stacked like bubbles in the sea (a wave of foam), softly block the line of sight while letting the sea breeze blow through.

This garden screen changes little by little every year through self-building. It will be a part of life in Hayama and it will become a part of the scenery. The resident who loves it here will have the luxury of making the scenery themselves. We hope that the love of Hayama will grow larger and larger.
