CASE-REAL | 东京DDD极简主义精品酒店
DDD Hotel is a minimalist boutique hotel located in Tokyo,Japan,designed by CASE-REAL.A renovation project for a 37 year old business hotel in the Nihonbashi-Bakurocho area of Tokyo.Most of the business hotels in Japan have turned into simply a place only to sleep.In collaboration with the project team,the mission for this plan was to re-define what is needed for a contemporary business hotel.The key concepts for the hotel was first of all,a place for good sleep and to spend a relaxing quality time.Since this hotel was renovated for people living in this ever changing society,a quality space and time was the most prioritized,to prevent This from becoming just a place to sleep.
Specifically,this hotel complex has a cafe counter with a barista,and an experimental kitchen for a collective of chefs based in French cuisine,and a former parking-lot converted into a contemporary art gallery.The original arched windows of the facade were kept.After entering the large entrance gate which was designed to fit the tone of the existing tiles,stands a simple lobby hall.
On the 2nd floor is a long counter which is the home to both the reception and the cafe function,welcomes the guests.This was formerly a floor for guest rooms,now converted into a common usage space.Though sacrificing a few rooms from its original,the common space was made into a different relaxing atmosphere compared to the guest rooms.But the ceiling is low on this floor,due to the fact that it was a floor to accommodate guests,they replaced the facade side wall with a large window to maintain incoming sunlight to keep the entire floor bright.
For the 3rd floor and up,in contrast with the two floors below,they have strengthened the idea of a relaxing,resting space.The function of each room is kept to its minimum,but equipped with a high quality mattress,and the restroom / bathroom was finished with mosaic tiles in aim to make a relaxing environment.The moss green key color used throughout the hotel,can show different expressions depending on its lighting conditions.
