The interior and exterior of the space are designed to be "classical" and are made of materials that will grow beautifully over time, such as concrete made from lauan board molding, mortar, and wood. The guest rooms are designed with facilities and furniture in mind from the user's perspective, providing a comfortable stay in a minimalist space. In front of the entrance on the 1st floor, there are paperback book-sized tiles baked one by one by Fukuoka City's pottery atelier "Sabie", creating a space that can only be experienced at this hotel. We also introduced check-in tablets and smart locks to improve guest convenience, aiming to create a facility that balances smooth customer service and comfort.

    It was decided to demolish the existing building and construct a hotel. We began collaborating with a design office and construction company to realize the project. We decided to develop a hotel concept that leveraged on the story of Bunshodo, the bookstore that once stood on the same plot of land before WWII.
