Ryokan Resort

Envisioned by the client as a luxurious traditional Japanese ryokan and onsen resort, Hayashida Architects developed a prototype master plan with guest houses, a full service spa, a Japanese tea house, a restaurant and banquet room, a wine and sake bar, a Japanese temple, a chapel, and an outdoor amphitheater. Based on a picturesque wooded site in Napa Valley, California, the buildings were located to maximize changing views and to provide additional privacy to the guest houses. Facilities for public day use functions are located on one side to further protect the serene and quiet ambiance for in-house guests.
