Architectus and Wilson Associates complete wellbeing-centric ski resort in Japan
POSTED 15 May 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
Australian architecture group Architectus and interior design practice Wilson Associates (WA) have completed the expansive Skye Niseko resort in Hokkaido, Japan.

Situated opposite the Mt. Fuji-lookalike Mt. Yotei, the 105-key hotel boasts a variety of wellness amenities, including three onsen spas, a float tank (said to be the first in Hokkaido), and a gym.

Highlights of the spa menu include a number of bodywork services, massage treatments, facials, and stress recovery baths.

Skye Niseko also features five penthouses, a restaurant, a sports shop, and ski facilities.

Wilson Associates and Pike Withers designed the hotel's interiors, while Architectus devised the overall master plan, conceiving the building's rounded exteriors to imitate the "sweeping winds that draw through the Niseko valley".

The design team also made extensive use of "locally sourced and fabricated materials", such as Japanese ceramic tiles and sustainably harvested timber.

Kendal Thompson, project designer at WA, said: "In true Japanese tradition, the property exudes sophistication and understated elegance."
