Feature wall and Canopy Besançon Art Centre and Cité de la Musique by Japanese firm Kengo Kuma and Associates has completed an art and culture centre with a chequered timber facade on the banks of the Doubs river in Besançon, France
For a client in Japan, architect Kengo Kuma created a guest bath clad in wooden slats and with a striking window wall that lends the feeling of a tree house. The rectangular tub and basin are made of hiba wood and are offset by a sculptural stool.
Beautiful minimalistic wooden branches make up the interior of this market place/hotel in Yusuhara Machino-eki. This unique structure is the work of Kengo Kuma and Associates. dh Courtesy of Kengo Kuma and Associates
