Moriyuki Ochiai

We established his own studio, Moriyuki Ochiai Architects that is active in architectural, interior, furniture,landscape and industrial design.
The sources of our inspirations come from being captivated by the vivacious and lively beauty of nature or life.
We can also feel the influence coming from the delicate sensitivity responding to the unique Japanese nature, which can be found in Japanese temples and gardens.
We wish to continue creating works that fulfill people's dreams, become the energy for their lives, and then move on to a deeper dimension that exceeds life itself.

interior design by Moriyuki Ochiai

DREAM DAIRY FARM STORE interior design by Moriyuki Ochiai A store selling dairy products and belonging to a company which runs its own dairy farm. The space is composed of a luminous body evoking the imagery associated with milk, an important merit and key ingredient of their products, a color gradation suggestive of green forests, dynamic modeled aluminum objects diversifying one’s experience of the space’s depth and expanse, and fixtures with organic curves expressing vitality. The space sends a perspicuous image as a store seeking to make high quality products from dairy farm milk, which is at the base of all their products.

DREAM DAIRY FARM RESTAURANT Restaurant by Moriyuki Ochiai The following interior design was realized for a restaurant built on a farm surrounded by a lush forest. The three dimensional white lattice nesting above the beams of the existing wooden structure forms the canopy of a forest that brings together the old and the contemporary by suggesting the superimposition of time and space. By superimposing time and space and bridging the old and the new, the repeated entwinement of lattice and light offers a mystic illumination and the spatial experience of penetrating into a deep forest.

kindergarten / nursery school  by Moriyuki Ochiai

LHM kindergarten kindergarten / nursery school by Moriyuki Ochiai We designed a playful and exciting interior of kindergarten. We experimented with a landscape design populated with lakes, hills and mountains that would inspire children a variety of uses and fun ways to play by stimulating their imagination. Here, the scenery and relief associated with nature is echoed throughout the space by a cleverly designed stage resembling a hill, furniture representing small mountains, caves or cabins and mirrors reminiscent of the surface of a body of water, while the color gradations of the walls feature a palette evoking the beauty of nature.

museum + multi-purpose space by Moriyuki Ochiai

Waterscape / Memory of Spring museum + multi-purpose space by Moriyuki Ochiai The following renovation project aimed to transform a botanical garden located near Lake Ashi in the Hakone area, into a museum/a multi-purpose space . we poured new concrete over the entire floor and created an octagonal amphitheater at the center of the entrance dome where the banyan tree used to be. A transparent resin was then spread at the bottom of the amphitheater floor to form a spring that honors the profound serenity and mystery surrounding water by acknowledging the memory of the botanical garden's naturally occurring body of water, as well as the Hakone landmark that is Lake Ashi

Tea Ceremony House by Moriyuki Ochiai

SEI-AN Stargazing Tea Rooms Tea Ceremony House by Moriyuki Ochiai - Constellation of Stargazing Tea Rooms - Moriyuki Ochiai Architects designed a cluster of tea rooms offering a view of the surrounding scenery and the starlit sky as an "tea house connecting people to the stars and nature" located in the town of Bisei, Okayama Prefecture, known as a sanctuary for stargazing. By merging together this newly formed belt of tea rooms with the idyllic hills, mountains and starry skies of Bisei, Their design team sought to realize a tea house that reshapes the town's panorama.

Beauty Salon by Moriyuki Ochiai

Crystalscape Beauty Salon by Moriyuki Ochiai Moriyuki Ochiai Architects performed the design for a beauty salon.They endeavored to create a space that would envelop the body in such radiance by making the entire ceiling into a luminous crystal symbolizing the ideal of resplendent hair.Metallic waves, representing the bright, aerial, gracious way in which hair flows, are intricately weaved into a white matrix of geometric patterns.They sought to honor the beauty of hair and replicate the spatial experience of penetrating into its mysterious radiance and profound depth through the repeated entwinement of layers of lattice and metal.

Restaurant by Moriyuki Ochiai

Aluminum Flower Garden Restaurant by Moriyuki Ochiai A restaurant/bar named FLOWER around the theme of flower. A sheet of aluminum spreads across the ceiling. Changes to the size and density of the flower petals impart the function and atmosphere suited to each area, such as lively and quiet areas created through minute differences in the height and expanse of a given space. One’s position and angle of vision as well as the reflection of images and lights from the mirrors on the walls concur to perpetually redefine the appearance of the whole space, thus enabling the viewer to experience space with transient and diverse atmospheres.

Nursery by Moriyuki Ochiai

Daruma International Nursery by Moriyuki Ochiai Moriyuki Ochiai Architects performed the design for a nursery school. Deliverables included an environment suitable to the school's educational policy, namely, bringing up children both physically and mentally that can think, learn and act on their own initiative. Thus, They set out to create a space that would promote a variety of uses and encourage children to come up with their own games as they would do in nature by recreating geographical features inspired by nature’s most beautiful assets; its colors and lakes.

Residential Building by Moriyuki Ochiai

Geosong Residential Building by Moriyuki Ochiai They performed the design for a residential building located in a hilly area. Thus, they set out to integrate into their design the structure of the earth while echoing the natural forces shaping the hills, strata-soil, and spring water found therein. Resonating with the landscape of rolling hills, this residential building channels and gives form to the natural energy embedded in the multiple layers of intertwined strata and springs surrounding it.
