As part of a regional revitalization project in Setoda-cho Onomichi City Hiroshima, an island along the Shimanami Kaido. A complex of two buildings that is the gateway to the Shiomachi shopping street and is located near Setoda Port.
The tourist information center is a 140-year-old dozo storehouse renovation, and while keeping the façade which was once a symbol of the island’s prosperity, it has been made a sustainable building by providing an inside and seismic retrofitting.
The dining room is a stepped space from the sea side to the terrace, where people can easily enter and become a place like a living room in the town. From the outside, we aim to make the scenery created by people as a new landmark. The hotel on the 2nd floor has large windows, and people can enjoy the Setoda Suido in front.
