The GA Group was approached to do a renovation on an originally Victorian Grand Hotel to bring it to the 21st century. The main objective was to keep the exterior in all its glory however internally the intention was to give a timeless, classic appeal – a place that feels comfortable and sophisticated.
The Palace Tokyo encompasses its surroundings with sublet colour schemes, echoing the greens of the landscape. With floor-to-ceiling windows, as soon as guests step into the lobby, they have filled with light and an immediate connection to the gardens outside.
The design concept behind the St. Regis Osaka was to pay homage to the golden age of Japanese history – the Momoyama period: an era of hope, prosperity and harmony. As soon as guests step into the hotel they are greeted with a moonlight ambience due to the combination of silver leaf, bronze and dark marble flooring, with a sparkling crystal tree as the centre of attention. The reception and lobby lounges evoke the brightness of the sun, with large scale limestone tiles on the walls and bespoke chandeliers that create a gracious ambience enhanced even further by the views over the Japanese garden terrace.
The GA Group was asked to renovate the pool house, residences and the Thirty8 restaurant, giving simpler spatial planning and maximisation of volumes. The firm used a design with simple, raw materials as accent pieces while drawing on the local heritage to give a laid-back and glamorous setting.
The Lotte Hotel dates back to the 1980s and was transformed into an elegant and filled with light with classic and contemporary styling. The new Lotte Executive Tower’s design was inspired by the folktale of the magpie and the tiger – the symbolism of the arrival of good luck and strength.
The first step taken by the GA Group was to develop a design scheme rooted in the cultural landscape of Nara – a place famous for its temples, landscape, historical buildings and Nara Deer. The guestroom colour scheme has a base in natural fresh tones with the use of timber bronze and leather found in traditional Nara houses. The goal with the JW Marriot Hotel Nara was to create a warm sense upon arrival, making guests feel relaxed and welcomed.
The Amari Hotel is the first Amari hotel in China and benefits from amazing views of the Lijiang River. The hotel has seventy-three guest rooms and suites spread on four floors. The hotel’s interior design draws inspiration from the natural scenery surrounding it.
