It used to be a dining space where all the guests gathered and enjoy the big plates. Now it is a relaxing lounge space, and dining space moves to the middle section. It turned out working really well, people can wait before dinner is ready, and after having dinner, moves to this place and enjoy coffee and dessert.
モノが沢山あったのが減って、白い壁の効果もあって、とてもすっきりしました。 There used to be lots of things, and now thanks for the power of white wall, very trimmed.
中央のテーブルをつけたり、離したりして、ゲストの数に応じて配置換えもできます。 By gathering tables in the center, or part it, we can treat large group guests or small group guests flexibly.
My new hobby, pealing wall paper also contribute some on this renovation. The posts in the middle were plastic brown, fake-wood wall paper, and covered with reed screens. Now it's all gone! Mitsu chan and Tae chan will think about what color they want to paint, or maybe putting on plaster.
It used to be just a corridor, where we just pass. Now it becomes kind of gallery space, where we can put even brochure, and hope people can stop and see this space. With new open window and plaster wall, this space became blighter and cleaner.
The most inner space used to be store-space. We again put away lots of stuffs from here and peal walls and re-painted into white. We projected my slides on to this wall and the space is now a nice event space.
Since we don't have any budget, we just did by ourselves with minimum tools and available materials. Great great thanks for Rica san's suggestion, how to re-use, re-design the space, all the member of Okada family and we worked hard and did it. We hope people who knows "Before" will surprised at seeing new KAIYU space. I also expect KAIYU will never stop changing, so we also look forward to seeing the new KAIYU in the future.
