Un pavillon de thé trop haut

Designed by architect Terunobu Fujimori for his personal use, "Takasugi-an" is a small tea house built high in Chino, Japan.

In Japanese, "Takasugi-an" means "a tea house (built) too high." A name found all the little vernacular architecture perched on two trunks of chestnut from the nearby mountain.

Dedicated to the preparation of tea, this pavilion offers extremely small living space, a few square meters accessible by a simple ladder. The interior is dressed in plaster and bamboo rugs while a single window frames the view of the surroundings.
