Commune Design and legendary architect Kengo Kuma have teamed up to design Ace Hotel‘s Kyoto branch which is set to open in spring, 2020. This marks the fourth collaboration between Atelier Ace and Commune Design including Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs, Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles and Ace Hotel Chicago.
Kelly Sawdon, Partner and Chief Brand Officer, Ace Hotel Group said in a press release:
“Commune has been a part of the Ace Hotel family for over 10 years, and their holistic approach to design and thorough research, admiration and support of Japanese craft and meaningful narratives felt like the perfect fit for Ace Hotel’s first Japanese outpost.”
The upcoming hotel‘s interiors draw inspiration from both the Eastern and Western culture where local artists and craftsmen have come together to help create this aesthetically pleasing space.
An exact date for the Ace Hotel Kyoto’s opening is yet to be announced, so be sure to sign up for Ace Hotel’s A-list to receive the latest updates.
