It is the 4th floor where these various functions intersect. We want to make this floor where customers of various purposes come and go, not just a hotel lounge, but a place with greater meaning.


The model is the image of a "station" that also leads to the name of the facility. Overseas, in the case of a large station, the scene where many people gather is often seen, not only as a railway platform, but also with a Marche spread around. We want to make it a place where anyone, including customers staying at hotels, shopping, and living in the neighborhood, can easily visit.


A courtyard that can be touched naturally by all five senses

A suitable courtyard is the central courtyard. It is a colonnade, and on sunny days the sun shines in and the natural breeze flows. If you put yourself in a comfortable sofa or deck chair and spend some time in the fire of the fireplace, you will find it to be a surprisingly quiet place. When you look around, the walls are greened, and you can feel the nature right next to you, which is rare in the city. Only the evergreen plants called Asiatic jasmine, which grow naturally in Kyoto Feel the nature unique to this land with all five senses.
