The Kyoto State Guest House

Strategy SET was commissioned by the Kyoto State Guest House to work with the world famous designer, Gelman, to make a promotional film about the Guest House. Aiming for more than a simple walkthrough video, we set out to provide a perspective that not only shows the intricate designs and attention to detail, but also the cultural and culinary artists who are called in to entertain visiting state dignitaries.
