ONOMICHI U2是将旧的海滨仓库适应性地重新利用到日本广岛县尾野市的新的互动空间的结果。我们力求以本项目“循环”为主题，增强这个城镇的魅力，实现繁荣的未来。 “许多游客，特别是骑自行车的人来到野野市，在那里已经认识到这个城市有美丽的山丘和”machiya“或日式古代房屋。在2013年，Onomichi市接受了我们的建议，利用海边仓库作为城市公民的新的互动空间。我们的建议要求将仓库完全转换为包括酒店，商店，开放区域，酒吧，餐馆，面包店，咖啡馆和零售店的地方。我们将元素纳入重建海滨仓库，让人想起Onomichi本身的性格。我们的建筑材料 - 木材，砂浆和钢铁 - 回忆了Onomichi的旧房子和造船业，这是一个长久以来的传统。例如会提醒我们鱼灯的照明。我们将这个项目的概念确定为“循环”。我们将这种现象描述为在一个长期建立的地方发现新事物。这个新鲜事物清楚地表达了城市人民所珍视的长久的品格。
ONOMICHI U2 is the result of adaptive reuse of an old seaside warehouse into the new interactive space for Onomichi city, Hiroshima, Japan.We sought to achieve the prosperous future by enhancing the charm of this town with the theme of this project “cycle.”Many tourists, cyclists especially, visit Onomichi city, where have come to know it as the town with beautiful hills and “machiya,” or Japanese-style houses of antiquity. In 2013 the city of Onomichi accepted our proposal to utilize a seaside warehouse as a new interactive space for the city’s citizens. Our proposal called for a complete conversion of the warehouse into a place that included hotel, cycle shop, open areas, bars, restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and retail.We incorporated elements into the re-creation of the seaside warehouse that were reminiscent of the character of Onomichi itself. Our building materials--wood, mortar, and steel-- recall the old houses of Onomichi and the shipbuilding that’s been such a longstanding tradition there. Such as the lighting that would remind us fish lamps. We identified the concept for this project as “Cycle.” We describe this phenomenon as the discovery of newness in a place long established. This newness cleanly expresses the long-standing character so cherished by the city’s people.
