Keio Prelia Hotel Kyoto Karasuma Gojo

Keio Prelia Hotel Kyoto Karasuma Gojo

The project was the creation of the first location of "Keio Prelia Hotel", a new hotel brand from Keio Corporation. The various motifs, lanterns, paving stones, latticework, sliding doors, mud-plastered walls, and changes of the four seasons symbolizing Kyoto were interpreted and revised in a contemporary fashion to create a Japanese space available only here. The lattice behind the counter was realized with perpendicular joints and longitudinal connections of acrylic and hinoki cedar. The walls were decorated with a hybrid composition of single walnut boards and foil. The mountain range with a Gozan motif of fitted plates overlaid with manila linen fabric expresses a modern sliding screen.
