To enter the hotel, it is to walk along a clean passageway, as a contemporary “kyo-machiya”, such a pathway is common in traditional inns for instance. The IT’S A TRAP SPACE Design Studio chose to open with a clear statement of both respect and a clear vision of updating the welcoming area with a mix of digital light and feelings. After setting the tone for a revival of an old promenade, the main social hub and concierge room directs the guest’s attention to an intrinsic combination of dusky tones.
As guests enter their rooms, a striking ample window faces sea. From floor to ceiling, the amplitude and the visual protagonism is undeniable, as the vibrant blue becomes part of the room.
It is important to note the attention to detail for each room, as customised decors with different materials being used in the walls, floors, and ceilings. A distinct experience for each level and positioning.
BS Suites embodies contemporary minimalism, famous throughout the world as well as a deeper understanding of the essence of design. It is both a respectful nod to the industrial design around it, and a brave bid to what it may become in the future.
