Wu tang clan retreat by squirtstudio embodies the samurai spirit

retreat is composed of traditional rooms: genkan (entry), ima (living room), daidokoro (kitchen) and yokushitsu (bathroom). in addition, it is constructed out of wood according to ancestral methods and complex woodworking. the only contemporary features are the recording studio equipment seen alongside chess boards and antique objects. the long footpath necessary to reach the refuge of the house plunges the visitor into another era, losing all the bars on their cell phone as they go along — saying farewell to the connected world and ‘welcome’ to the one of martial arts. the guests become deprived of their habits and routine, now devoting their time to music production without interruption. ‘we will see how this unique and holy place can influence the music created there’, expresses the team.
