Shiba Park Service Apartment

In constructing a serviced apartment in Tokyo-like place where Tokyo Tower and Shiba Park spread beyond the highway, I was in charge for the entire concept, exterior, entrance, and lounge design.
As there are many embassies and many visitors from foreign countries for both tourism and business aims, we targeted those people and aimed to make the place easy-to-understand Tokyo regular hotel. This is a place with prestigious historic spots, and was used to be a commercial center, with goods transported along the river from Tokyo Bay with a lot of Daimyo residences around there. In recognition of such a culture, “Edo traditional townhouse” was used as the design concept of the whole building to blow the former livelihood into it. By applying wood grain handrails, wooden lattices that imagined board fences, black tiles like roofing tile, and soil wall to the exterior, the design reminded of Japan feel. In the inner space, the design was made for guests to expect the next space by designing the entrance as an image of the alley and lighting the stone pavement with glass. In the lounge on the second floor, similarly to Japanese houses with low ceilings, the light was placed in a low position and the outside light was taken in to the interior through paper sliding door and it gave out the calm atmosphere as an inn.
