Hotel Dear Dog
Shizuoka, Japan / 2011
“Japanese and Western styles”
Hotel Dear Dog is a special type of hotel where guests can stay in the same room with their pets.
In this case, the client had a very clear vision of what kind of space they wanted.
– To create a space with a futon (Japanese-style bedding), so that guests are able to relax by sitting on the floor (Japanese lifestyle).
– To create a space with a sofa and table, so that guests are able to relax by sitting on the sofa (Western lifestyle).
– To create an “extraordinary” space as it is a hotel.
As a result of meeting client’s requests, the space naturally became a combination of Japanese and Western styles.
What I also did is to displace the spatial structure and material structure of the two cultures in 90 degrees in order to give the room an “extraordinary” atmosphere.
