Retreat in Kanagawa

Comprising a main house, a spa, two guest houses and a tea house, this mountainside retreat property nestled among sulfur hot springs faces the Mount Fuji.

In collaboration with the architect Kengo Kuma who designed the infrastructures, this place interprets elements of traditional Japanese houses using modern technics revealing a savage and preserved nature. The landscape made of stones and water is placed at the heart of this project and simply embellished by essential shapes and materials.


The colour palette derives from Shodo (Japanese calligraphy), a declination of white walls and black stained woods custom made furniture.

The shapes appear to be spacious and generous, in line with Liaigre signature proportions and comfort, yet fitting with the delicacy and discretion of the Japanese culture.
