DESIGN The resort’s design concept is based on five key words and feelings: Utage (Festive), Seido (serenity and movement), Miyabi (elegance), Hana (splendid) and Nagomi (harmony). The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto makes use of a design that is in harmony with the historical neighborhood’s environment, while achieving a fusion of traditional and contemporary Japanese style sought to retain the character and aesthetic of a traditional Meiji house and courtyard into the architectural structure of the building to reflect the ancient culture of the city. Interiors created by Peter Remedios Design Studio pay homage to the traditions of Japan, with patterned motifs created by local artisans and the incorporation of Zen gardens and water features, including a three-story waterfall positioned in the heart of the property. Mizuki, La Locanda and The Bar were designed by Design Studio SPIN infusing exceptional craftsmanship with traditional Japanese influences into modern spaces.
ART The theme of the property’s extensive art collection is “The Tale of Genji,” the classic novel written by Murasaki Shikibu in the 11th century. In the public areas, the design attempts to recreate the atmosphere of the residence of Genji Hikaru, the protagonist of the story. 80 artists, mainly Kyoto’s local artists, have created a total of 409 works interpreting the delicate, graceful sentiment of Genji’s time for the contemporary world.
