Lucas Takaoka was invited to handle the design of the Nohara Terrace, an outdoor space at the Jockey Clube de Sao Paulo in Brazil. The Nohara Terrace is an outdoor living space for the Casacor SP 2019.
The main idea of the project was to establish a space that is not only clean and minimal but also relaxing and peaceful for the visitors. The provided area for the development was 215 square feet and it comes with a wooden structure made from Brazilian pinus and features wall coverings as well as concrete flooring. In a nutshell, the structure creates a pleasant contrast of cold and warm textures.
The terrace is separated into three areas. The first is the toilet area hidden behind doors, the second area is a small waiting lounge, and the last one is a counter for washing hands set in the middle. The counter has a built-in fireplace to warm up the area, especially when the exhibition takes place in colder seasons.
Aside from designing the Nohara Terrace, Lucas Takaoka was also in charge of designing three furniture pieces that came from the factories. Those pieces are a side table (Nômade), a floor lamp (Nohara), and an armchair (Tati). All three furniture pieces are meant to be shown to the public.
