Aman Kyoto wants to provide employees with a working environment that has a similar atmosphere to their hotel. The goal of this project is to create an office with Aman’s aesthetic, translating its beautiful landscape and natural environment into a modern office setting. Combining Japan’s tradition, the design utilizes the choice of furniture and finishes to bring the exterior into the interior, creating a comfortable and calming atmosphere.
The lobby is designed with a wood slat ceiling, combining with recessed wall grazer that emphasizes the pattern of the onyx wall. At the exhibition area, the LED sheet behind the Japanese flower arrangement projects the silhouette on the linen canvas, mimicking the view through a traditional Japanese House’s shoji window.
