Text description provided by the architects. In order to have clean air in the smoking room in the 1st floors in “GRAND TREE MUSASHIKOSUGI”, the complex shopping mall, we took 2 specific measures. Firstly, by setting the carved wall and utilizing the character of the smoke -smoke is pulled to walls- we induce the smoke to the exhaust outlet on the ceiling.

Secondly, by setting the fan between the ashtray and the exhaust outlet, the secondhand smoke and smoke from people’s mouth are quickly drawn in. With those measures, the smoke is immediately cleared out from user’s breathing area. The room is a 4m×3m space.

By putting a white halftone dots seat on the mirror-made end wall, the reflected space including the curved wall and counter looks foggy and thus users think as if the air flows to the deeper inside.  This smoking room creates an effective air flow as equipment and also by a visual effect. We successfully provided a smoking experience. (Hiroyuki Ogawa / Hiroyuki Ogawa Architects Inc)
