Bringing the Community Together: Pit Terrace Outside Japanese Barber Shop

We are living in a world where distance between people only seems to be growing with each passing day; even if they are physically just next to one another! Located in a neighborhood of Ichikawamisato, Japan, the Pit Terrace is an innovative idea that aims to rekindle the joy of entire communities finding both time and space for one another. Set in a locality that was predominantly dominated by train as the means of commuting in the past, this wooden terrace with sitting space outside a barbers shop aims to recapture the magic of a past that is quickly being forgotten by the car-centric generation. A Jorge Almazn Architects + Keio University Almazn Lab creation, this simple deck unravels a world of joy!
