Abomination Tea House

The Abomination Tea House soars in the ether of Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido. It is positioned between two cliff edges on Mt. Niseko-Annupuri, parallel but out of view of Grand Hirafu Ski Resort. The structure of the tea house will be a composite carbon fibre tensile material that stretches to meet the jagged cliff face. Numerous iterations were experimented with based on parametric scripting before settling on one that fit the specific geography. The development of the proposal is based on material experimentation done with fabrics and solids. The final development models included iterations done with varying quantities of plaster and concrete fitted to a tensile nylon base. This location has close proximity to multiple cities for accessibility and tourism, while also being in the midst of nature. While the ski resort is a tourist attraction during the winter season, the tea house will provide an attraction for the warmer seasons. The tea house is purposely positioned in a direction perfect for viewing the sunset during the early and late warm months.
