ABOUT

Senior houses should be more creative and dramatic. Kamio challenged to make more art feeling atmosphere by designing the spaces like art gallery with many geometric expressions. In the main lounge, Kamio focused on the ceiling as an important design aspect; rather than a flat ceiling, he built slightly different ceiling height levels with several the colored circle shapes. The lighting reflections were changed as a result and it gave the space more depth and expanses; Kamio successfully leaded the visitor eyes not only to the floors but also to the ceilings, and gained the extraordinariness.
