When we entered a traditional temple, it takes a long time for our eyes to adjust because of the darkness inside. And the gold leafed inner sanctum gradually comes into view, it is beautiful. This main hall is not the main temple in this religion, but important community center in this region. It is not only for daily use, but also a place for funerals, entrance and graduation ceremonies for the nursery school attached to the temple, and weddings. Since the main hall will be used for many purposes other than religious activities, we decided to build a bright main hall with lots of natural light, unlike the main temple in this religion. On the other hand, light cannot shine on the Buddhist altar, and heat must be controlled. Therefore, we decided the ceiling as a lighting fixture with a shade. The light from the top light was received by reflectors and once again reflected by the curved ceiling surface painted white, brighten the whole room. Creating a mysterious space with no shadows by natural light.
