We planned a sustainable soba restaurant “SLOVE”, which is a 5-minute walk from Enoden Yuigahama Station.
The restaurant name “SLOVE” is a coined word that is a combination of “Slow” and “Move”. The logo was also designed with the wish that it will continue to move slowly and surely.
We focused our customers on the local Madams and planned a spacious and friendly space. People living in Kamakura are also very sensitive to the environment, so we aimed to start as a new store that incorporates circulation.
By polishing and reusing the wood that was already in the existing store and reusing the old wood that was taken from the old folk house for the newly adding wood, 90% of the interior materials were upcycled and utilized.
Instead of throwing away food residues such as vegetable waste and leftovers discharged during cooking as waste, put them in compost. By mixing it with soil, microorganisms decompose and it can be used as compost for soil preparation.
Although small, the owner reuses compost made from kitchen waste as fertilizer in his field.
The owner loves the sea, so the restaurant is full of feelings for the environment that he want to cherish. We hope that it will be a place that is loved by many people and has a deep connection with the community.
