Tokyo Hotel 02

more

This 26-room hotel is a 5-minute walk from Akihabara Station, on a main street lined with medium-sized office buildings. Most Japanese cities do not have laws to protect the landscape. Therefore, a unified streetscape is not created. On both sides of this hotel site, there were office buildings with vertical windows and horizontal windows. We decided to use the relationship between the two buildings to create an architecture that fills in the urban gap. The facades were aligned and the exterior wall colors were similar to those of the two neighbors. Although they are not the same height, they look as if they are one building. We believe that if we create relationships among neighbors one by one, a unified cityscape will be created in Japan.
