Meditation as architecture in a Shizuoka teahouse turned villa

The peace and quiet Numazu Club is its biggest selling point. Even when the sliding doors of a guest bedroom in the villa are wide open, there is only the faint rustle of pine trees in the wind and the odd splash of a few birds enjoying the spring water of a shallow pool in the garden.

There is indeed very little going on Doing at the resort, located among private vacation homes in Numazu, Shizuoka Prefecture, a 10-minute drive from the city center. The only nearby attractions are a beach promenade and Senbonhama Park, a piece of land full of pine trees. The villa rooms, designed by architect Akira Watanabe (1938-2010), have elegant, minimalist décor overlooking a simple, pebble-lined pool with still water, and not a single TV in sight.

If meditation manifested itself as architecture, Numazu Club would be it.
