Rigby & Rigby begin work on prestigious ski destination in Niseko, Japan
Rigby & Rigby are pleased to begin work on the Niseko Club as Development Managers, working with local teams to deliver a new luxury accommodation facility for a private client in Niseko, Japan.
Niseko is Japan’s most prestigious ski destination with unique seasonal conditions that create some of the driest and lightest powdered snow in the world. This 5,100 SqFt property has stunning views of Mount Yotei and sits moments away from the slopes.
The Architecture is inspired by the etherealism of Japan’s Hokkaido National Forests with simple architectural geometry sitting in quiet juxtaposition to the wild and untouched nature of the Hokkaido Region. The property has been designed as a minimalist cube enveloped in timber to provide filtered daylight to the internal spaces whilst offering spectacular views of Mount Yotei.
Inside, the simple and clean interiors create a tranquillity to the space, offset by the crisp architectural finishes, using organic materials to create a welcoming warmth and softness to the space. Integrated contemporary technology creates a functional and comfortable internal environment that is adaptable by inhabitants for max enjoyment of space. The design is understated, functional yet elegant in its simplicity and planned to allow for adaptability and flexibility, with the compact design making it energy efficient in the cold winters.
Rebecca Mark, Lead on the Niseko project writes “Niseko is a unique opportunity to work in a fantastic part of the world with a long-standing client of ours. Through collaborative working with local teams, we are producing an exemplary piece of design within the region that will offer functional yet highly desirable accommodation a stones throw from some of the best ski slopes in the world.”
