Interiors and Architecture, True to Japanese Standards

The Design Process

Personal Contact, The Key to Success

Every Sukiyado project is unique, so we always start with meeting our new client. This gives us the opportunity to discuss the project in detail and listen to all wishes and demands. The first meeting is most often planned at the location of the project, so we can also thoroughly inspect the available space and get a proper understanding of the current elements and overall atmosphere.

After this briefing, the Design Process can officially begin. The available space will be recreated in our unique 3D environment, which will then be transformed into an authentic Japanese interior design. This 3D environment provides a true to life view into what the final interior of the project will be like. Moving around the interior and looking at all aspects from every possible angle truly adds to the experience of the design. When the presented design is fully approved, we can start the planning of the complete realization of the project.

The Woodwork Process

Professional Construction by our Daiku Woodworkers

There are two separate phases of the Woodwork Process. The first phase brings us to the Sukiyado Workshop. Here, all the separate elements are created by hand, after which the full interior is constructed in the most complete way possible. We always do this to make sure that everything is fully realized and meets all our quality standards. When everything is perfect, all the elements will be deconstructed again, after which the separate parts are prepared for transport to the location of our client.

The second phase brings us to the location in question. The particular space is thoroughly prepared beforehand to ensure a smooth execution. The interior is then carefully installed, element by element, under the keen eye of our client.

Creating Separate Elements and Furniture on Request

Next to full-fledged interiors and architecture, Sukiyado also offers custom-made Japanese style furniture and separate elements. Think of Shoji sliding doors and Tokonoma displays. A very important element of a true Japanese interior are the Tatami mats that are used to cover the floors. We have our own specialized supplier from Japan where we can order all preferred shapes and sizes on request.

The Meaning behind Sukiyado

The name Sukiyado is derived from the Japanese residential architectural style known as Sukiya-zukuri (数寄屋造り). This style is known for its informal aspects and evolved from the more formal Shoin-zukuri style. The word ‘Suki’ means refined taste or elegant pursuits, which perfectly captures the essence of Sukiya-zukuri. With the added suffix ‘Do’, meaning way or path, Sukiyado can freely be translated as ‘The Way of Elegant Pursuits’.
