INTERIOR STYLING

GARDEN HOUSE kamakura

EATERY&RETAIL / Kamakura, Kanagawa, 2012

Garden House is a new shop in Kamakura, an ancient capital of Japan. It’s a city where many historic ruins remain and which is much-loved to this day by Japan’s literati. The project renovated and converted the former studio of manga artist Ryuichi Yokoyama, which sits in the Onarimachi area near Kamakura Station. The shop includes a 110-seat café and restaurant with attached terrace, as well as a “general store” (selling various lifestyle products) and a garden shop.
The concept for the renovation project was “local and craft”. Jamo was responsible for the interior and exterior of this community destination. We adopted eclectic styles, including retaining various elements to keep the memory of the 50-year old residence alive, as well as decorating spaces with Scandinavian and arts-and-crafts styles and finishing the wood in the ceilings with a so-called “u-zukuri” technique, which rubs the soft part of the wood to bring out its beautiful texture. Jamo tried to create a space that exists in balance with nature and has a sense of “universality” required of a contemporary experimental space such as this. One way in which Jamo tried to accomplish this is through the graphical use of triangular wood fiber boards in the wall of the booth seats area, with the pattern indicate forest. Another is through the expression of contemporary modern craft while also keeping minimal boundaries between interior and exterior spaces.
Tree House was built by “tree house creator” Takashi Kobayashi. The office SOLSO, which works in landscape design and plant coordinating, collaborated on the landscaping and garden shop. The gift shop Early Birds, which Jamo's Chinatsu Kambayashi run, collaborated on the shop's general store.

 歴史の旧跡が数多く残り、古くから文化人に愛されてきた古都・鎌倉にオープンした複合ショップ「GARDEN HOUSE」。鎌倉駅からほど近い御成町に残る、漫画家・横山隆一氏の旧アトリエをリノベーション&コンバージョン。テラス席を含めて110席を誇るカフェ&レストラン、生活周りの雑貨を扱うジェネラルストア、ガーデンショップ,ツリーハウスクリエイターの建てたガーデンハウスを併設。 リノベーションのコンセプトは、“ローカル&クラフト”。弊社は、このコミュニティプレイスの内装デザイン及びエクステリアを担当。築50年を越える邸宅の記憶を継承し、アーツ&クラフトや北欧のテイストを散りばめながら、和風建材を使い天井を浮造りで仕上げるなど、様々な様式を折衷。また、レストランのソファ席の壁面に“森林”に見立てた三角形の木毛板をグラフィカルに配し、外と中の境界を緩やかにつなげながら、現代のモダンクラフトを表現するなど、緑と共存し、時代の試練に耐えうる普遍性を持った空間を目指した。 植栽計画、ガーデンショップにSOLSO(ツリーハウスはツリーハウスクリエイター小林崇氏が制作)、ジェネラルストアには弊社所属の神林が手がけるギフトブティックEarly BIrdsがコラボレート。
