The relaxation salon is located underneath the elevated railway tracks, where many inhabitants are used as a commuter town of Osaka, Japan. For the design, “Simple × WA (Japanese style)” is requested by the client. Eye-catching and impacts are needed to the facade because of a large outer wall, size of 7m × 5m. Therefore, inspired by pressing the “acupressure point” of the wall, pushing arch roof tiles which is a typical material of “WA”. In the evening, soft and characteristic shades created by the arch roof tiles will greet guests warmly.
