瀬戸内project SETOUCHI Project

Currently, a plan is underway to transform one of the islands in the Seto Inland Sea into an entire island peninsula.

The location is easily accessible among the islands in the Seto Inland Sea, and the island has a cycling course that goes around the island, cherry blossoms in full bloom in spring, and other locations where you can enjoy the nature of the Seto Inland Sea.

The peninsula area where this project is being carried out, where nature lives, had been exposed to landslides caused by landfill development.
Therefore, the concept of this project is also the restoration of the original environment. The earth is restored by layering buildings along the contour lines of the mountain with flat slabs in accordance with the contour lines. The choice was made to blend in with the topography rather than to be alien to it.

The water terrace, which makes use of contour lines, is inspired by terraced rice paddies, and attempts to restore the topography that had become bald hills due to land development.
