HAVEN OF TRANQUILITY
SOMUSHI| 素夢子

Photo © Katsumi Yasuda

Handmade curtains, old doors from condemned buildings, flowers and plants – everything is a reflection of architect Katsumi Yasuda’s own warm and sensitive personality. Located in Kyoto’s historic quarter for kimono makers, Somushi is a haven of tranquility with a meditative quality. “When you design something, it is vital to allow time to go over everything in detail,” explains Yasuda. “Here in Kyoto, the pace of life is just that bit slower, so there’s always time!”
