Visitors to Seoul looking for a serene spot to lay their heads can now check into Nuwa – a tiny guesthouse tucked down one of Seochon’s historic alleyways.
The one-room hotel measures a little under 30 sq m but manages to pack a lot into its limited space – including a sunken bathtub, a reading nook, and a long dining table.
South Korean studio Z_Lab oversaw Nuwa’s interiors and have focused on creating a calming atmosphere for the one-room hotel – which is available to book via Airbnb. Dark wood furniture echoes the overhead ceiling beams, complimented and contrasted by rattan cupboards and pale fabrics.
Elements of the outdoors are brought inside thanks to stone blocks, which create seating and support furniture. But the centrepiece of the boutique hotel is the bedroom’s huge porthole window, which lets guests fall asleep gazing onto Nuwa’s tiny garden.
