Uji hotel from Alts Design is a minimalist guest house in Kyoto.
This is our first project for producing guest house in Uji-city.
This city is one of oldest cities in Kyoto and today it remains as part of Japan’s idyllic landscape. There are many houses which have tiled roof, japanese cedar and doma (a space that you can stay without shoes off) in this city.
These old Japanese-style design have unique atmosphere and wabi-sabi (sense of beauty). Then we produced “new Japanese style” which is combined old design and modern one.
Once you enter the building, you could find doma like a path and will be excited like “what’s ahead of it?”. Go through the path, guest rooms are located.
That makes you feel like you are exploring a new world.
We did our best to make staying enjoyable for guests
