Salt. | 东京CHOCOLATE BANK咖啡吧改造
“CHOCOLATE BANK”是镰仓发迹的巧克力品牌“ca ca o”的旗舰店，这也是一家拥有概念店的新业种形态店铺。巧克力的原材料“可可膏”在古代是非常有价值的食品，甚至可以当钱使用，而呼应这前银行的遗址因此有了这个名字。它位于镰仓车站附近，该车站一直都是观光景点。御成通与镰仓车站附近也是当地居民的生活区，为了避免破坏周围环境，我们尽可能地保留了银行外观。
“CHOCOLATEBANK” is a flagship store handled by the chocolate brand “ca ca o” from Kamakura, and the shop of a new business style as its concept shop too. As “Cacao Mass” was as valuable as money in ancient times, which is the raw ingredients of chocolate, the shop name was given from that along with the location taking place at former bank site. Though it is located near the Kamakura station, which is always crowded as a sightseeing spot, the façade was designed with the remains of bank appearance not to disturb the environment of Onari street as the local living area.
Inside the store, we changed ATM space into kitchen, and the standby, receptionist, and the banking office space into the eating space, and left the feelings of bank even if the space became skeleton.In the backward of shop, the vault which was intentionally left was designed into guest seats.
The place was renovated to enable people to touch the stainless door of 50 cm thickness and turn the handle. I want all people living in Kamakura, people visiting there as tourists, and chocolate fans to calmly enjoy the space with the atmosphere of bank environment.
