Kasho Gyoen Hotel Hotel by Hideyuki Hiramoto

Home > Winners > #70317


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Kasho Gyoen Hotel

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hotel

INSPIRATION:
With an area of around one hectare, the site is located within Shikotsu-Toya National Park in Hokkaido. Near the site there is a renowned hot spring village Jozankei Onsen. The site is about 10 minutes’ drive from there, standing alone in the mountains and you can appreciate the original Hokkaido landscape. On my first visit to the site, I felt a bit fearful at the power of nature. So the beginning point of my idea was this fear. I wanted to turn this feeling from fear into delight.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
I tried to design not only a beautiful modern space which would be acceptable to urban people but also a natural rustic space where you can feel the uniqueness of this site. I had researched some materials and crafts produced around the site and in Hokkaido, and then I brought these influences together in a modern spatial design. I call this concept A Secret Villa In Unexplored Regions. I hope that the guest will feel the original Hokkaido nature whilst retaining relaxed mood.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
These grounds, extending to approximately one hectare, are located in the abundant environment of the Shikotsu-Toya National Park, densely verdant with primeval forest. The guest could have a comfortable experience whilst enjoying natural landscape.In the center of the lobby there is a centerpiece of an open hearth using Sapporo Soft Stone from near the site inspired by “IRORI” which is a feature in Japanese traditional houses. As in traditional Japanese houses, the space around the fireplace provides a welcome/talking/drinking/relaxing environment. This space is located slightly lower than floor level, so a guest can calm down in the space. The guest can also see through towards the pond when the guest enter the lobby.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2014 and finished in May 2018 in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
I felt that using local materials was important point, so I had researched some materials produced around the site and in Hokkaido such as Sapporo Soft Stone from a mine where is near the site and Oak and Ash which are symbolic wild trees in Hokkaido. These natural and rustic texture helped to make the space that can be in existence just here.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Total floor area 2,912 sqm. There are 23 suite rooms, Lobby, Restaurant, Bar, Shop, Lounge, Beauty Salon, and Floating Terrace.

TAGS:
National Park, Original Landscape, Mountain, Hokkaido, Secret Villa, Unexplored Regions, Materials produced around the site, Crafts produced around the site

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the Lobby, Floating Terrace, and Corridor we designed some original lamps which change color every month, inspired by the changing colors of local flowers which we researched around the site, month-by-month.

CHALLENGE:
Creating balance between keeping a rustic feel, whilst being luxurious for guest was challenging. I tried to make a luxurious space as a hotel by using some rustic local materials and crafts which I had researched.
