Lake House by Strickland Inc.

Strickland Inc. have been shortlisted for Restaurant – Asia Pacific Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2022.

Two and a half hours away from Tokyo, is Nikko, Tochigi prefecture, a perfect distance for urbanites to get away. The Ritz-Carlton Nikko by Luxury Hotels & Resorts opened its doors in this breathtaking location, adjacent to Lake Chuzenji, located at the foot of Mt. Nantai.

Lake House is a two-storey stand-alone restaurant. The first floor is a grab and go café lounge, and the second floor is the main dining area catering Western cuisine. A fireplace, made from local Oya tuff stone, is set as the centrepiece of this restaurant deliberately to connect the voided space seamlessly.

Lake Chuzenji has been an idyllic summer retreat destination for many foreigners and diplomats to build their vacation houses. The overall structure of Lake House is inspired by the architectural structures often seen in vacation homes. The structure is integrated into a Lake House design with a modern twist, while harmonizing with the surrounding lake and mountains.

In addition, a modern interpretation of elements that are reminiscent of a boathouse and its surrounding nature of Lake Chuzenji echo throughout the space, elevating the guest experience to be unique and nostalgic. It almost feels like the boathouse belonged there once upon a time, with collections of artworks inspired by boats, fishing rods, and flora and faunas that would inhabit the lake are integrated in the space – providing a visual narrative of this land’s memory.
