The Details

What makes it Kobu

Part hotels, design studios, members’ clubs, and art spaces, Shila’s projects inhabit a personal approach in the hospitality concept, extending beyond lodging to pop-up happenings, photo & film productions, private dinners, business affairs, exhibitions, and intimate celebrations. As a diverse group of creatives, their shared values have been deeply infused in the fine design, craftsmanship and ingenuity that make up Shila.
Combining original architectural features with raw textures, custom-made and antique furnishings, each corner of Shila has been nurtured to reveal the true character of the neoclassical building that it sits in. The use of natural materials, including marble and stone combine with metal structures, locally milled wood, and vintage fabrics, all evoking a timeless aesthetic, and above all comfort.
