In the case of Seibu Recreation Co., Ltd.
"Hot spring in front of Seibu Chichibu Station Matsuri no Yu" FF&E(Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment) Construction
"Matsuri no Yu" opened on April 24, 2017 as a hot spring commercial facility directly connected to Seibu Chichibu station.
FF&E and total construction work were done by NomuraDuo in cooperation with Nomura Co., Ltd. and Nomura Products. Proposal, production and implementation was handled for the outside structure lighting, lanterns, "noren"(entrance curtains) for each entrance and planning of graphics and icons for all the banners etc. of the building.
Taking advantage of the fact that more than 300 festivals are held in Chichibu annually, Nomura Co., Ltd. constructed the entire facility with ‘festival’ as the concept. As a good luck charm, a Matsuri no Yu original ‘chichifuku’ (play on words as shichifuku has the meaning of the seven deities of good fortune) was designed by our company to be used as decoration and for souvenir goods. The facility consists of a refurbished product sales zone, a newly constructed commercial zone, and the hot bath zone.
The newly constructed first and second floors are all bathing areas. As FF&E(Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment), "noren"(entrance curtains) and lanterns have been developed for the bathing area that also serve as signs. The usage of color for the bathing area interior is restricted to only consist of white, red, black and wood grain. By displaying shrine curtains called "onmaku" in key places of the outdoor bathing area and elsewhere, an atmosphere with the theme of "festival" has been created within the bathing facility.
