HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO

(Page 63)



Aburanokoji Residence in Kyoto was rebuilt in 1897 by Takamine
Mitsui, the tenth family head of The Mistui, on a site owned by the
family for two hundred and fifty years. The residence represented
the high-end aesthetics and cultural literacy of the family, as
Takamine himself took part in designing. Today, the residence
was reborn as a luxurious hotel named HOTEL THE MITSUI
KYOTO operated by Mistui Fudosan. The hotel was designed
considering the history of the context and historical values of the
residence, to present world-class sophistications of Japanese
culture. A lounge, guest rooms, and restaurants connect to a
courtyard. The views of the garden give a feeling of the depth and
the richness to the interior environment and continuity of each
room attracts hotel guests.

NEW ERA OF STREET CULTURE

Chocolate Jesus

(Page 104)



This street casual clothing store is located in Okinawa. The
designer referred to the origin of skateboard when he started to
work on this project. Skateboard is said to have been born as a
alternative for surfing. So, slopes and steps are like waves and
streets are waterways in his design concept. In that sense, boxes
and ramps are such examples in skate parks. In this interior
environment, the ramp is interpreted as an abstract element of city
landscape. Shoppers can sit or even lie down on steps and
curved walls where they display merchandises. Furniture and
platforms are not specifically functional, making a fabulous city
space for skateboarders in the environment.
