Tour Movie

The in-situ concrete facade quietly yet boldly blends into the urban fabric with the white stucco inspired by plastered walls of traditional townhouses, like the one sitting next door. Guest rooms overlook Oike avenue, best known as venue of the famed Gion Festival. Taking full advantage of the commanding corner site, rooms are fitted with large expanses of floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing guests to fee; “immersed” into the city. Following Zen principles, a pared-down minimalist material palette is selected, including the signature gray-toned oak veneer and semi-translucent washi textured panels. Specially commissioned art by local artists interpret traditional craft techniques to create works of art that represent modern day Kyoto.
