beijing-based japanese architect yohimasa tsutsumi has sent us images of his new project, ‘anzas dance studio’. by applying a gradient of dots on to the room’s mirrored surfaces, a deep fog effect is created, resulting in a dramatic altering of the room’s atmosphere.

the design aims to bring into dizzying focus the presence of the floor which has been done in a grainy, deep-coloured tigerwood. the holistic effect of the materiality coupled with the mirror applique is a merging of the space and a blurring of the room’s depth and boundaries. the dot motif is repeated in the reception space in a bright and oversized fashion, establishing a strong aesthetic identity to the dance studio.
