kakekomi tenjou@|V
KEY WORD :@architecture / tea houses
@
Also written 썞V, also called *keshou yaneura no kakekomi tenjou ω̊|V. A sloping ceiling formed by the underside of a roof of a tea ceremony house, beneath which a guest sits. The ceiling may have a window set in it to provide more light for the host preparing tea, and is supported by a short wall. The ceiling rafters are round and fairly thick, and follow the pattern established by the rafters on the flat part of the ceiling. The sloping ceiling rafters extend beyond the outer wall as exterior eaves. The rafters may be made of small, unstripped logs, bamboo stalks or bamboo laths. Between the rafters are very thin circular bamboo supports. Usually the rafters are nailed in place, but sometimes they are tied with wisteria vine. Long wooden horizontal slats are often placed over the rafters beneath the rustic roof shingles. A sky light which can be opened is frequently incorporated into this type of ceiling. The size of the skylight varies form 24-30cm. If the ceiling is entirely sloped it is called soukakekomi tenjou |V, and is considered ideal for small, simple rustic tea ceremony houses, especially those smaller than 4.5 mats. While many of these ceilings appear to be merely the rough underside of roofs, they are in fact true ceilings of varying heights made beneath the real roof. Example of soukakekomi tenjou: Saiouin Yodomi-no-seki @ł̐, Kyoto; Urasenke Konnichian ƍ, Kyoto. *CHADOU SENTEI ⣒ states that Souzen @S (1566-1627) favored bamboo rafters placed over wooden splints running parallel to the ridge; while Koushin Sousa ]@ (1612-72) preferred split bamboo on the same type of ceiling. Examples: Omotesenke Fushin'an \ƕsR, Kyoto; Myoukian Taian ҈, Kyoto; Hassouan , Nara.
