We will suggest the future possibilities of hotels and commercial facilities through the works of UDS Ltd..
UDS was recognized in 2002 for designing the Japan’s first boutique hotel, CLASKA, and for continuously creating unprecedented and internationally awarded hotels including Hotel KANRA Kyoto, a small but luxurious hotel with the traditional styles of Kyoto, Hotel ANTEROOM Kyoto which features art & the current culture of Kyoto, and Shinjuku Granbell Hotel which collaborates with the next generation of Asian artists.
The latest works are Hotel EDIT Yokohama and GRIDS Hostel Lounge Akihabara, both of which propose hotel’s existence as a core of its local community.
We will invite two designer from UDS and show UDS’s challenging effort in reaching out to new fields and its creative processes of realization through the works that indicate possibilities of next commercial spaces in Asia.
