Schemata Architects has created and built Dokubo + El Amigo in Setouchi, Japan.

The Seto Inland Sea received renewed attention as one of Japan's original landscapes after the Covid-19 pandemic.

"From the project site, you can enjoy panoramic views of the beautiful Seto Inland Sea and its countless islands, with boats floating in the water as if swimming in the clouds," said Schemata Architects.

This time, Schemata Architects built two new buildings among them, keeping in mind not to disrupt the landscape and nature.

The main house, tea house, guest room and dining room were built in different designs from top to bottom on a slope overlooking the seascape to the south.

This project has been shortlisted in the house extension category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
