Outline

The SEA PASEO is a passenger ferry connecting the ports of Hiroshima, Kure and Matsuyama, newly built after circa 30 years. While being a transportation to support livelihoods of locals, in aspiration to provide memorable experiences in Setonaikai for travelers from home and abroad, we have developed "The mobile park for all people to enjoy voyaging along Setonaikai" as a design concept.

Evaluation

Designating three zones on board and color coding them according to themes, the ship offers the passengers a variety of areas to relax, including sofas, carpet and deck. Based on the concept of a moving park over the sea, the guests can freely move around and spend time in their most comfortable posture. The structure capitalizes on the free and open nature of a ship ride to offer the utmost comfort. The fact that they have included in their plan to transport more passengers in the event of emergencies based on the experience with heavy rainfall in Western Japan is also favorable.
