The Range Design collaborates for second The Lively hotel in Japan

Japanese real-estate developer Global Agents will open the second edition of its new lifestyle hotel brand, The Lively, in mid-August. The first location opened in Hakata, Fukuoka in July; and the next edition will be located in Japan's second largest metropolitan area, Osaka, in the Honmachi District. A third location is scheduled to open later this year in Tokyo.

Designed in collaboration with The Range Design, The Lively Honmachi Osaka will combine urban street-art aesthetics and high-tech amenities.

The lobby of The Lively Honmachi Osaka will double as a lounge with sofas, a billiard table, board games, and a projector area for watching films. There will also be a fire pit on the outdoor terrace.

The Lively Hommachi Osaka will have 174 rooms across five different room types. Each room will have a mattress from American manufacturer Serta. These mattresses are on average 1.5 times thicker than a typical hotel mattress and utilize gel foam on top.

The property will have “The Liverally”, a co-working space that can also be used for banquets and events. The open space is designed to encourage communication between travelers.

For dining, the property will have The Lively Kitchen, The Lively Bar and The Roof, located right above The Lively Bar, on the top floor of the hotel. It will have views of the surrounding area.

Honmachi is located in the heart of Osaka within walking distance of both Kita (to the north) and Minami (to the south) Osaka. The hotel will be located near the Sakaisuji Honmachi Station on the Subway Chuo Line and Sakaisuji line.
