Tully's Coffee Shop -remm Kagoshima is located on the first floor of the high-grade hotel built in the typical shopping quarter "Tenmonkan" in Kagoshima, Japan. Therefore, Tully's was required to upgrade their facilities Tully's shops to be able to provide breakfasts for the hotel guests.

The operator came out with the following brief: to "create new design", and "collaborate with a famous bakery in the local district." Though this answer may appear simple, it resulted in a welcoming environment for coffee shop and hotel guests.

In terms of design, Doyle collection Co. Ltd. carefully considered the main functions and operations of other Tully's stores. They also designed and reconstructed the bakery as a unit. Although it looks like everything has been re-tooled, they have left the Tully's know-how's throughout the work.

The shop is an extension of the former Tully's shop and has been highly upgraded. Doyle collection Co. Ltd. avoided heavy design features that are quite common in competitor shops. They have upgraded the interior with light taste and added comfortable light fittings. The refurbishment now suits the needs of the café business and has received a lot of positive feedback.
