The peg is a traditional method. A hard timber that passes through two pieces of wood from the side to fix joints such as columns and bases, columns and girders.
The Suikoushya Kyoto School was assembled with hozo, hozo holes, and pegs. The Ile de France school building will also be constructed using traditional Japanese construction methods.

Let’s enjoy woodworking together!
We, Suikoushya, plan to establish a school building in Ile de France in 2022.
This is a project that we want to build with Suikoushya graduates and professional woodworkers. Through this real construction project, Takami would like to pass not only Japanese woodworking techniqs and craftsmanship but also the spirit of the Japanese people involved in making things.
