The proposal, also known as Kaiteki (Japanese for “comfort”) Centre, is developed based on the Japanese concept of 'ikigai', stemming from the Japanese words 'ikiru', meaning to 'live', and 'kai', meaning to 'have sensation of hope'. The concept of 'ikigai' is to help individuals maintain a happy well-being and discover their own purpose in life, through following the ten principles of 'ikigai'. The development follows the primary comfort aspect of ‘goodfit’ and touches upon the ideas of heterotopic principle of Michel Foucault.
