Park Luxe Toranomon

A high-rise residential building located in the Toranomon area, the name of which derived from that of a gate of Edo Castle. While the entire area has seen constant and drastic changes in the midst of an extensive redevelopment, it still has a natural element such as Atago-yama Hill which is 25.7 metres above sea level. On the top of the hill, there is Atago-jinja Shrine established in the early 1600s, where people can enjoy cherry blossoms in spring and maple leaves in autumn, and water, which in former times came from a spring, gushing from a small waterfall into a pond surrounded by greenery. The building design was inspired by this spring water together with the bold and steeply tiered lines of the famous Shusse-no-ishidan (rising stone steps). The elegantly ascending curved line emphasizing the form of the tower represents the ever evolving area, while mirroring the image of the gushing spring water and the steep stone steps. A delicate expression is created by the metallic material used for the curved vertically ascending elements, which softly reflect light. The exterior of the lower section employs unique soft finish granite, while in contrast a mirror- finish surface material with a sharp impression is used for the eave, giving a feeling of glamor to the otherwise subdued appearance. The repeated streaks of light extending from the eave bring a sense of rhythm to the entrance space, while the luminous wall at the front representing the sparkle of water welcomes active city dwellers.
