Very small, and low-budget project.
It was decided to do as much as possible by DIY.
Therefore, the space was adjusted only by changing the shape of the entrance and simple but upgraded boxed fixtures.

The original doors, which were narrow and opaque, were removed to create a transparent and gutted form of porch, flanked by a display of WASHI(Japanese paper) and a display/writing counter to create a buzz of people. The porch makes it easier to step into the shop from the busy front road, and furthermore expands the area of the visual point VP that catches the eye and draws the eye into the shop.

The existing columns and beams were painted entirely black, an architectural expression that was too strong for the small products. Therefore, from the client's main product range of WASHI, a paper with a checkerboard pattern in the thickness of the paper was selected and its black colour was changed to a graphical 'transparency'.

The fixtures were sculpted in part of its with simple CNC, with the aim of increasing the surface influence on the interior landscape and its use.
Specifically, the kyoto-like grid carved into the top surface of the flatbed, the patern folming that serves as a shelf support for the wall shelf, the support for the washi display stick, the architrave of the table and the paper-work-like door pulls were cut and carved with a thin bit into thin plywood, which is not handled by a large CNC, on a combination of simple boxes to create a simple plywood boxes, bringing them closer to craft.
The kyoto-like grid and wall shelves changed the landscape of the shop and its products. Using the height difference from the outside of the shop, the top surface where the products stand in the line of sight of the raised and the enlarged sides of the table are treated as shelves, extending the action from 'seeing' to 'picking up' the products to a path beyond the façade.
