International design firm wows in Japan
Wilson Associates is an award-winning firm with a sold name for hotel interiors, so it is no surprise that their latest endeavour in Japan is a showstopper. The firm was brought on board to complete the interior design of the five penthouses, lobby, corridors, spa, cafe deli and ski valet at the unique Skye Niseko ski resort in the Hokkaido National Park in Hirafu, Japan.
This luxurious collection of condominiums is a marriage of Alpine design and Japanese hospitality and culture, all brought together through the collaboration of world-class design teams.
This privately-owned resort was designed by Australian-based Pike Withers and has been conceived of as two interlocking L-shaped volumes. The shape allows each of the apartments and penthouses to benefit from both privacy and panoramic views.
Wilson Associates ensured the main lobby had plenty of WOW factor and guests are immediately greeted by A striking reception desk where a rough stone wall surface contrasts with the counter’s sharp and sleek metal immediately greets guests with a WOW factor.
The lighting strategy works in tandem with the bamboo lattices on the walls and slate paving on the floor to make everything in the lobby seem like it’s floating.
Lap of luxury in penthouse apartments
The penthouses are organised in arrangements of either three or four bedrooms and come complete with comfortable and cosy living and dining areas. They offer guests the ultimate in luxury and boast covered balconies and heated external spring pools overlooking the stunning landscape.
After a long day on the slopes, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the Ryoko Spa, which features native artwork and locally inspired crafts.
