Brasserie in Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto

Brasserie restaurant & lounge in Four Seasons Kyoto, Japan. Designed by Shanghai-based architecture firm Kokaistudios. The site is located in the UNESCO protected area of the temples of Kyoto at the base of the mountains and faces a historical traditional Japanese pond surrounded by a magnificent heritage ikeniwa garden. Positioned between the arrival lobby and the garden, the restaurant is the core of the public space of the hotel, becoming in this way the main representative space of the entire resort. The architect conceived the space on with a strong architectural strategy by using the Kyoto traditional system to connect indoor to outdoor, creating a large architectural feature that frames the view of the garden.
