Entry Description: “ ZABO ” means “stare at the heart where free of all thoughts and desires” or “stillness sit and quiet a heart, forget the current situation where you are”. ZABORIN is the Ryokan which has 15 rooms located in the middle of forest. With one sentence to describe this building is commune with nature. The view is totally different from each room and you are able to enjoy its own beauty. The space of the accommodation wings is the most luxurious one-story house and has two courtyards for each room. Also, the high ceiling and low ceiling of each room mix in a good balance. I wanted to create the Japanese beauty with space and free of all thoughts. I intended to make space with high level and character. I also want people to feel “alive” in here. Also feel the profound and quiet elegance world.

About the Designer/Company
The architecture is established at light, material and dimensions. In fact, these already including structure, flow line and insulation. Good architecture provides relief to people. Furthermore, you will feel wrapped with an impression. With modesty, you will be reminded that you are part of nature. Architecture is always concretely. It definitely not abstractness, not either be affected by times. All works of 「nA」are thorough planned with these. And all the old Japanese architectures were so. Now foreigners are all saying that, works of “nA” is “JAPANESE”.  by Makoto Nakayama
