The interior experience is just as much a feast for the senses as the building’s exterior and context. Closed and retrospective combine with framed-views of the nature beyond: concrete-encased stairwells open to corridors with glass with views of the pine forest.
Materials and detailing continue the hotel’s Japanese theme on the interior. The seigaiha pattern, which was used to depict oceans in ancient Chinese maps and is commonly found in traditional Japanese costumes, has been applied to wallpaper, headboards and textiles as a consistent decorative feature. This pattern of layered concentric circles represents many things: water, good luck, as well as power and resilience.
Interiors are inspired by traditional Japanese design, such as tatami mat dimensions and the Seigaiha wave pattern used in wallpaper and furniture.
