RYUICHI SASAKI ARCHITECTURE
The music hall is placed in the southwest part of the building, creating a space for circulation between the interior and exterior of the site: forming the foyer and entrance hall as the landscape space entwines with undulating hills. The music hall consists of a two-storey building, with 80 seats in the theatrical hall, forming a trapezoidal volume of over 6 metres high in its southwest corner. The interior and exterior of the hall consist of walls designed to evoke a sense of visionary, rhythmic, and musical world. In the foyer of the inner structure, 3 brass-coloured stainless steel diagonal walls are composed with the lighting lines. Atop the circulation area of the structure is a residential space, designed with a volume shape — an effect of mountainous topography effect, which has been shifted along the north-south axis of the site, symbolic to this project’s facility in connection to the temple.
