Home > Winners > #71366


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sumihei Kinean

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Traditional Japanese Hotel

INSPIRATION:
The hanare were designed under a concept of harmony of ahare (an expression of commendation and sorrow) and appare (an expression of commendation and approval) to provide a fine quality of relaxation apart from an ordinary life to the customers who stay here. Most of the inspiration comes from the great nature surrounding SUMIHEI. As the name “Kinean” means sounds of the seasons, we wanted guests to be able to enjoy the sounds of nature while their stay at SUMIHEI Kinean.

"SUMIHEI" is a ryokan (Japanese hotel) established 150 years ago in Kyoto. This was the extension work, and we have built 3 new buildings; lobby building with a lounge and the family hot spring, north building and south building with 2 guest rooms in each building. Every room has different artwork of Tango Chirimen textile on the bedroom back wall based on the name of each room. At the lobby, guests can enjoy the scene on the cloud-like –shaped sofa we design just for this lounge.
