“With an intention to create a small intimate hotel reminiscent of a private residence, I have purposely conjured a sense of tranquillity throughout the design and ambience of the hotel,” says André Fu. The result is a sophisticated modern-oriental residence, designed with respect to balanced geometry and symmetry, providing all the comforts of a stately home. The palette is restrained with the use of bamboo and lacquered panels to create an oriental sensitivity, but the hotel remains international. (text by AFSO / André Fu)

Kioku was designed by André Fu to bring the essence of a ‘modernist bamboo theatre’ to the space. It epitomises Fu’s trademark aesthetic for relaxed luxury, offering a holistic Japanese dining experience. Visitors to the restaurant approach it through a hallway lined with bamboo posts, inspired by the famous Torii Tunnel which leads to the mountain shrine in Kyoto. A bold ceramic artwork by Jun Kaneko, at the entrance, leads the eye upwards to a dramatic double height space. The focal point of the interior space is a vast 11m long sushi counter which has been carved out of solid pine timber trunks. (text by AFSO / André Fu)
