Hoshakuji station - Kengo Kuma & Associates：In order to reduce the weight, we used lauan-made plywood for structure, instead of Oya stone. By using wood, I wanted to revive the humane and warm atmosphere once any station building used to have.
Love this idea. Wish I had a staircase space for it, but I'd still love to use some of these design ideas for our built-in in the dining room. Bookcase at the office of the Dutch Architects of the Year, 2012
