Waku No.17 is a space for tea and meal. Every space in the room is equipped with a window that can be easily opened to let sunlight in and let the air flow. Ceiling fans are used to help air circulate and improve the essence of the space. The project gives full respect to the original building without using suspended ceilings and other decorations. Open lighting system and air-conditioning system are adopted in the room, which are designed to be white like wall and ceiling so as to improve the light reflection. Choosing tiles as the main “language”of spatial expression, the project is committed to exploring every possibility of various expression forms of tiles. There is no suspended ceiling, skirting line, door or window cover to reduce material cracking and aging of decorative materials. Corners of walls, beams and columns are polished into round to avoid the potential danger of sharp angles to people and resolve the vulnerability of wall corners. The materials that have the property of life, such as recycled old tiles, old bricks, old wood, natural stone slabs and pure cotton fabrics, are used to absorb light, air and moisture indoors, constituting a "life course" and evolving into “trace” aesthetics.
