Interior Design
Keiji Ashizawa Design

The comfortable, light-filled space was designed by Keiji Ashizawa Design office to be an inviting place to spend some time. The pour-over coffee station is positioned to communicate the essence of Blue Bottle Coffee, even from the outside. The brick flooring echoes those used in historical buildings in Maebashi and in the SHIROIYA HOTEL, creating a sense of unity with the surroundings. Keiji Ashizawa Design created the long, round sofa in the center of the space, to bring people together. The space also features a new Maebashi-themed artwork by locally-based artist Yoshio Shirakawa, whose work is also on display in the hotel.
