The entire hotel takes on the role of a gallery, the artworks are showcased throughout the building, it creates an opportunity for the guests to enjoy art in an out-of-the-ordinary setting and allows them to participate in a one-of-a-kind accommodation experience. building, it creates an opportunity for the guests to enjoy art in an out-of-the-ordinary setting and allows them to participate in a one-of-a-kind accommodation experience.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Hotel Anteroom Naha aims to revitalize its neighborhood community through collaboration with contemporary art and its local culture. Inspired by the white cube space of galleries, the interior design is intended to be simple and minimal, which allows guests to focus on the artworks exhibited throughout the hotel. The façade, interior, and furniture were designed in close collaboration with artists, which convert the space itself into a piece of art.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The hotel’s gallery will regularly host exhibitions and provide opportunities for upcoming artists to showcase their works. Market events featuring local small businesses are organized regularly as well, to make the facility a place for interaction between guests and locals. The hotel also contains multiple concept rooms that were designed in collaboration with artists, the number of concept rooms will increase in coming years, to continue to encourage young artists of Okinawa.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project has started in April 2016 in Naha city, Okinawa, Japan. Naha is the largest city in Okinawa, a prefecture comprising more than 150 islands in the East China Sea between Taiwan and Japan's mainland. Okinawa is known for its tropical climate, broad beaches, and coral reefs, as well as World War II sites. The hotel is completed and started its operation in February 2020.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The minimal interior finishes like skeleton ceiling, mortar floor, and plain white paint on walls are utilized to emphasize the view of the harbor and art pieces on display. The design of the guest room was inspired by the ship, the furniture is detailed with round shapes, and the color of the space is toned in blue-gray pallets of the sea. The exterior walls are constructed with Glass fiber reinforced concrete panels, which can be flexibly shaped while retaining their durability. It serves as a protection against the tropical sun and wind, while it is the largest art installation of the facility.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The project is a 7 floors building of a steel-framed structure, 5756 square meters of total floor area, consists of 126 guest rooms, a restaurant, a bar lounge, a gallery, and a roof-top area.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The site's neighborhood has long been classified as a low-income area, there are very few hotels or other business facilities that attracted visitors. Through the research, our team discovered the fact that there are not enough galleries in the Naha region where contemporary art can be exhibited properly. Therefore, by creating a hotel that combines an art gallery in this location, this project aims to create a facility that serves as a place of interaction between guests and locals while contributing to the local art community.

CHALLENGE:
Taking advantage of starting a building from the ground up, the project started a collaboration with artists from the early stages of design and was challenged to create an architecture that also is an art installation. The façade was designed in collaboration with Kohei Nawa, the pattern of the GRC panels was inspired by his artwork series "Direction"; in the attempt to showcase the entire building as an artwork. Other spaces like the entrance hall and concept suites were also made in collaboration with the artists.
