Parallel stripes as a design tool, at Shisendo Temple, in Kyoto

Parallel stripes as a design tool, at Shisendo Temple, in Kyoto
This is a view from the inside a house at Shisendo Temple. The striped pattern connected the outer with the inner. The stripes of tatami mats goes well with the stripes of the ground outside, patterned by blooms.

The continuity of the pattern makes the inside feel larger than it is and such connection of the outer with the inner is one of the features of Japanese traditional architecture.
