HOTEL AOKA KAMIGOTO

Photography by: Tomooki Kengaku

A hotel project located on the beautiful seaside of Goto Islands. The historical churches located on the island has been registered as a World Heritage Site in July 2018. 

A modern approach taken for the architecture, drawing inferences from the same era as when the historical churches were built.  The abandoned local hotel was renovated into a design hotel with a new brand accommodating a wide range of visitors from business to leisure.

 

美しい海と世界文化遺産登録の教会群を誇る五島列島において、新たなホテルをつくるプロジェクトです。対象となる既存建物の建築的特徴を読み解きながら、教会群の多くが建造されたのと同時代のモダニズムを参照したデザインを採用し、衰退してしまった地方ホテルを、新しいブランドとともに、ビジネスからレジャーまで幅広く受け入れるデザインホテルへと再生させました。
