フーバー店舗改装工事 FUBAR remodel

Recently remodeled the nightclub, FUBAR in Tenjin, Fukuoka. This time the client designed the interior, and we just made it happen. The traditional craftwork "Kumiko" is installed behind the bar counter.

Red checkerboard on the bar area wall. We call it "Ichimatsu" that design has a long history in Japan. We planned to install a folding bench at the front of traditional townhouses, but changing the plan to handrail. The client painted traditional lime plaster on the entrance wall by himself. FUBAR is an international bar, so hopefully people from overseas feel something different design from theirs.

Rough drawing on the other side of the wall, also drawn by the client. The black part looks like a traditional calligraphic handwriting and a good decorative accent.

Large washroom. The interior color is based on the bar color, red.

Client and I went to the lumber shop to see the materilas for the DJ booth. The client chose the different color lumbers due to its different kinds and years.

Rough sketch of the DJ booth planned before the construction.

おはようございます(^-^)/今夜から平日FUBARスタートします!火曜日はNu endoがレギュラーです!ちなみに…水曜は Nu Sea-bose .新たにNOMAが仲間入り!木曜はkensac たまにNu !です(^-^)/お待ちしてまーす!!!

須恵の小屋完成写真 Sue hut photos

I remembered that the client one day wants to open a mountain hut cafe a while ago, so designed the wooden, second-story house like a mountain hut in Suemachi, Kazuya-gun.

Facade photo. The client did DIY for the fence, kitchen garden, storage and rocket stove. Those items also make the house more like a mountain hut.

The exterior wall is made of baked ceder which is one of the traditional materials of Japan, and mixing with the oil stained ceder to make an uneven color. The door maker made the retro screen door.

This is a compact house though, you do not feel it's a small room. The client requested to hide the kitchen from the dinning, we installed the sideboard as a partition.

Carpenter made TV cabinet and DIY coffee table.

Storage underneath one step Tatami place. This is the good space for taking a nap. You'll smell good of the local rush grass of Tatami.

Stairs are simple, wooden, smells good.

Attic room for kids. The study desk made of a beautiful ceder is a gift from the carpenter, wishing their hard work.

ベルワッフルズ壱岐オープン!BelWaffles IKI open!

Waffle shop, BelWaffles IKI new open in the shopping mall Amagokoro, IKI. The clients are from Russia and Belguim. Tried to make their idea real such as producing the atmosphere of Belgian waffle shops.

In a really short period of construcion, the local skillful constructor complete their work by March 18th. Somehow, the shop could open due to their hard work.

The first day was incredebley busy for the shop, that was awesome problem. I tried my first time chalk art on the chalk board. Should have drawn softcreams instead of the ad board.

Not too bad for the first time right? Drew ingredients around the waffle. Coffee cup's colors are the same as the Belgian flag. I'll add some more letters and drawing.

You can try traditional Belgian waffle, originally from Liege, Belguim. You will love it!

ベルワッフルズ改装中 Remodel BelWaffles

Now under construction of the take away waffle shop for BelWaffles in Bayside Place Hakata. BelWaffles deals with waffles in Belgian traditional way. I like the one on the photo, with chocolate, typical Belgian.

I started its design a couple of months ago, based on the images and requests from the clients, mixing with my image of the traditional Belgian waffle shop. Unfortunately the project above was turned down because we change the location.

The client decided to open the new shop in Iki island. The location is a part of the big souvenir shopping mall, Amagokorohonpo who deals with Iki specialities. The first waffle shop launched in Iki, the neighbour is Iki beef burger shop. Taking over the last design of the traditional waffle shop.

According to the client's request, we use three colors of the Belgian flag. Black, yellow and red. Rush the constuctors to complete work untill March 18, it should be All right. My Iki recommendation is having Iki beef burger, Belgian waffle as a dessert, and local souvenior from Amagokorohonpo.

フロート体験!Relaxing float experience

Visited "M float lounge", float spa in Fukutsu, remodeled last year. First time I tried "floating" in a solution of epsome salt for relaxation, which is known worldwide as one of the most effective relaxation methods, but brand-new and rare in Japan. The manager explaned details and how it works well. It was really interested.

Feeling good if you float in the sea, but you have to use your hand to swim. In the tank, you do nothing, just floating. You don't feel boundary between air and liquid. Felt like sinking and floating in the fluid, but you can still breathe, and every piece of mascle is relaxed. The manager said, one hour floating equals to six hours sleep.

The minerals in the liquid penetrates in to skin, my skin totally became smooth after the treatiment. The most impressive thing was even liquid temperature was almost the same as my body's, that kept me warm for long time, because it improved my metabolism. A lot of athletes try the floating for quick recovery from their injuries.

めっちゃ気持ち良かったー!詳細はこちらFeel soooo goooood! Details are: M float lounge
