Pebble is designed as a healthy heating system for both indoor and outdoor places. The system is based on the heating of naturally formed and tumbled pebbles of various natural colors via an electrical resistance. The product is healthy by humudifying the air, also economical and space-saving with the wide surface area in a small volume. The product, as a natural heating system is both functional with its mobility and visually appealing with a sculpture like look.
This project was to convert "Machiya", a Japanese traditional wooden townhouse, in the centre of Kyoto, into a small shop. The original wooden frames were reinforced with steel frames because the original building was dilapidated. I focused on the way accommodating necessary functions of a beauty cosmetic shop within the space limitations of the original "Machiya".
