Discover The Incredible Sunny Hills Project By Kengo Kuma ⇒ We are used to seeing big constructions made out of concrete, but Kengo Kuma surprised us once again by creating an incredible building’s facade with thin wooden slates. We’re talking about Kengo Kuma and Associates’s petite cypress-slatted building for Sunny Hills. After being asked to design the shop and office, to stand on a corner in the residential district of Aoyama, Kengo Kuma hit upon the idea of a facade composed of thin wooden slats intersecting diagonally like branches in a grove of trees.

Kuma gave the joints, typically right angles, a more streamlined 30-degree/150-degree configuration, layered the latticework into a three-dimensional grid, and mag­nified it to building scale. Modelled with Rhinoceros and SketchUp software and assembled by hand, the intricate design was then constructed in Japanese cypress.

Filtering through the latticework, the sunshine epitomizes SunnyHills. Its pine­apple cake is sold at concrete counters that rise seamlessly from the floor. The effect is unlike anything Tokyo’s 19th-century carpenters could have imagined—yet somehow in line with their sensibility.
