Coeda House

Kengo Kuma completed the "Coeda House", a café located in a garden in Shizuoka, Japan.

The design aesthetic is influenced by the innovative structure, which saw the design team stack square squared boards to form a huge tree structure. The project, with a strong visual impact, allows you to get great views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding landscape.

The 8 cm square cedar planks were stacked and reinforced with a carbon fiber rod, with a tensile strength seven times stronger than that of iron. The design imitates the structural elegance of a tree: where a single trunk with large branches provides stability in the event of an earthquake. Kengo Kuma appropriately called the "Coeda House" project, which means "house of small branches". The site is located on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean allowing the structure to also serve as an observatory.

"Thanks to the tree shape, we were able to eliminate the columns on the perimeter that otherwise would have obscured the landscape," explains Kengo Kuma & Associates.
