Text description provided by architect.
A 25-room luxury hotel, facing Nijo-Jo Castle in Kyoto. Insidethe “flying geese formation” shaped plan (like Nijo-JoCastle and Katsura Imperial Villa).
A flow line leads from analley-like approach to an open lobby facing the garden,and on to the guest rooms, luring guests into a secludedretreat with an extraordinary vibe.
The lush greenery isdesigned to be reflected in the garden’s water feature andin the interiors of the lobby and guest rooms like the “sanshi-suimei*” scenery of Nijo-Jo Castle, to create subtle andprofound spaces where the interior and exterior mingle.
*Sanshi-suimei: beautiful and pure landscape with mountains and rivers.
