This is a hotel planned to be located in the center of Osaka, a major city in Japan.
There are various shops and restaurants in this area creating a very lively atmosphere, and people and objects actively come and go 24 hours a day. Contrary to this active atmosphere, this project aimed to create a space where time passes by slowly in a graceful and elegant manner.
We have drafted the concept words “Element of Nature & Chic Oasis” and by creating a space with the concept of the element of nature in the center part of a city we hoped to have the guests spend high-quality and sophisticated time to refresh themselves from the busy daily activities.
Fire, water, earth, light, sky, moon, sun ・・・・
Words related to Nature are assigned to the common-use spaces and guest rooms so that the respective characteristic designs are elucidated naturally.
People, time and objects come and go and mix together at an incredible speed.
We hope that people can spend a special time in this place despite being located in the center of such environment and where time seems to flow differently especially here.
