 Abstract
Branding is a process of building the relationship between a brand and consumers. This process can also happen in a space that reflects brand characteristics, and this kind of branding is called space branding. This way can strengthen a brand image by delivering its profound impressions with synesthetic experiential services for consumers. In terms of brand extension, particularly, it is possible by space branding to apply the image and value of the parent brand to spatial design so as to expect the direct effect of experiential brand recognition. As a result of case analysis for space branding - the scope of which was limited to hotels - specific ways of embodying a brand into space were largely classified into three types: the first is the 'embodiment of visual elements' that directly embodies a brand's logos, colors, forms, and textures into space; the second is the 'experience of brand content' that mainly adopts the way of giving impressions with events or customer services, or of inducing direct experiences combined with exhibition function; and the third is the 'symbolic expression of brand characteristics' that indirectly expresses the strong concept or image of a brand - a type in contrast to the first direct type. These ways of space branding change the general abstract feeling of a brand's qualities into specific spatial experiences, thus now settling as one of the ways of marketing that are direct, strongly sustainable, and the most effective.
