Project Description

The hotel was shaped along the lakeside with a panoramic view of Lake Hamana, and had the characteristic of creating an extraordinary resort-like feel. Therefore, when renovating the hotel's buffet restaurant, we adopted a dry resort style that originated from Greece in the Mediterranean region as a design element, taking into consideration the fact that Lake Hamana is a brackish lake, as well as the natural environment and climate. At that time, the hotel will entertain guests with special products and dishes from Lake Hamana at the restaurant. The key to this design was to harmonize the characteristics of the location with Mediterranean resort elements. The interior of the store is laid out around the main counter, which incorporates elements of ancient Japanese earthen floors and courtyards. mortar or plaster The plastered walls and wood create a Japanese feel, while natural materials such as rattan and twine are used for lighting and furniture. It creates a resort feeling by applying it to the. In addition, copper is used in various parts to create a high-quality, luxurious feel. The highlight is the live kitchen at the counter, where fish caught from Lake Hamana are cooked using Greek pottery as a brazier. The courtyard that can be seen at the back was designed so that you can feel the four seasons through the counter. The artwork inside the store conveys the sense of place. Produced with materials and colors that match the interior while placing emphasis on it. The pottery used for the brazier was purchased locally. There, they grill and serve blowfish from Lake Hamana. It has been designed as a resort space with a live feel that gives a Japanese and Western feel.
