Outline

The project was an entire makeover of the building of Takao Sanguchi station, using a grand roof made of wood. Mount Takao is worshipped as a sacred ground in the west of Tokyo. The roof here functions as a boundary between the secular world and the holy place, represented also by the railroad as a modern infrastructure and a big natural environment. The platform was also freshly designed with wood, equipped with a lighting system that got a clue from some special lantern of this district. The soft and warm light from the platform guides the train passengers to the different world outside.
