Cups kamakura is located in one of the most famous sightseeing towns around Tokyo area, called Kamakura. The building was a non-use over 50 years old residence and one of typological symbols in the town. In architectural and business views, we carefully remained the building itself and gave a new role in the town. The space became a café & hotel which serves all gluten free foods and nature feeling stays, and then we concentrated more on healthy and sustainability concepts. Reusing the original parts and materials, we brushed up their shapes and colors to create new design relationships.
