Upon design, our utmost priority was how to maintain this beautiful landscape of the rice fields while gently incorporating a new architecture there. It was important to balance and harmonize this architecture with the rice field, which changes its appearance with the seasons. Everything except for the core structures was made of wood to blend in with the landscape.
