One-North eden

The One North Eden project is pursuing an iconic design as part of a city block in development according to a master plan by Zaha Hadid Architects. The dynamic design expresses an overwhelming delicacy and softness with radiant volumes which seem to hover above an expansive landscape blanketed in green vegetation. This master design plans to blend the lower levels of the building into the surrounding environment by broadly integrating lush gardens throughout the premise. This lush greenery around a central pool covering the rooftop of these lower levels underpin the towers which seem to float weightlessly above a hill of water and plant features. These towers will feel delicate with a soft exterior shell unifying the entire structure thanks to the horizontal lines of the balconies and curving forms used at every corner. Panels overlayed with a subtle pattern adorning the top of each tower will put on display an iconic design continuously transforming at every glance with time, season, and the changing sky—sometimes married to the horizon and others a sharp contrast to it. The walls and eaves tracing the curves of the driveway to an entrance surrounded by lush vegetation and waterscapes eliminate any boundary between the exterior and interior to realize an integrated design intended to gently welcome everyone with a dynamically open space.

Park Court Jingu Kitasando The Tower

Even while located right in the middle of Tokyo, Park Court Jingu Kitasando The Tower will stand among three of the most lushly green spaces in Tokyo—Meiji Shrine, its outer gardens as well as the Shinjuku Imperial Garden. The location provides tremendous freedom via fantastic access to the JR Yamanote and Tokyo Metro subway lines at the heart of the city’s transportation network. This district will become a node where urban functionality of heavy foot and road traffic intersects the lush green spaces where birds and butterflies stretch their wings. This project is interweaving the organic vitality with versatile connections brought about by the unique location to realize a comfortable architectural NEST. This design creates a woven exterior further accentuating the delicate softness with curved geometry throughout the entire building. The landscape design is also leveraging elevation differences to transform the scenery and greenery and give the building façade an everchanging appearance every time one passes by. All can delight in a view entwining the gardens, roads, water, and other distinct elements of Kitasando. In addition, the roadside storefront will greatly expand the vibrancy of the intersection while the sidewalk rhythmically lined with gardens will cultivate a calming park-like space.

Grand Marina Tokyo Park Tower Kachidoki Mid/South

The Grand Marina Tokyo Park Tower Kachidoki is a large-scale, mix-use commercial development complex which will generate new value in Grand Marina Tokyo near Ginza in central Tokyo. The project harmonizes perfectly with the surrounding area not only in the architecture and interior design but also in its landscape design along the bridge and shoreline as well as public spaces with direct train station access. The entire concept evokes an image of an exclusive urban marina overlooking the river and ocean nestled centrally in a global metropolitan hub. The design in every aspect of the property is worthy of a place named Grand Marina Tokyo. The façade design takes advantage of the waterfront towers by forming dynamic sails which seem to float across the water surface. These Sailing Towers glide sharply up into the sky while incorporating curved lines producing gentle movement throughout. The distinct wing-like shapes of each of the two towers act as a unified shape over the ocean sculpting a layered scenery distinct to the waterfront property.

Park Court Shibuya The Tower

Park Court Shibuya sought to emphasize Japanese aesthetics via straight and curved lines as a high-rise residential tower. The design embodies a locational context of the elegant Yoyogi National Gymnasium as well as the verdant Meiji Shrine nestled in amongst large trees. The impressive form gently widens as it rises for a distinctly beautiful contour visible from every angle. The dynamic curvature cuts through the sky as the curved lines running up to each apex corner meet arcing rooftop fins. This project exemplifies Shibuya’s diverse mixture of creativity and personality by staying true to the Full of Color, Full of Life concept as part of a triad of buildings including the Shibuya City Office and Shibuya Public Hall. The brilliant colour gradation of the balcony exteriors emanates with residential life while the spiral around the tower gives an even greater sense of rise.

Shibuya City Office

Yoyogi Park and Meiji Shrine are outstanding natural treasures just on the other side of Shibuya City Office when approaching from Shibuya Station. This essential context gave colour to the project by evoking images of the purity in the powerful yet peaceful green landscape and refinement in the serenity of Shibuya’s residential district. The exterior walls embody these words using panels with a tranquil green colour gradation which blend seamlessly with wall greening. The entire wall becomes a work of art aiming to harmonize the structural volumes of the city office with the soft urban shapes of Shibuya. This green colour gradation even flows into each interior with green walls lining the inside of the entrance hall. The sensational green design unifying both the interior and exterior abolishes structural barriers to make the Shibuya City Office as inviting as a park, which is ideal for public facility providing citizen services.

LINE CUBE SHIBUYA Shibuya Public Hall

A theatre brings people together in celebration on special occasions. The Shibuya Public Hall design uses spectacular coloured glass to underline the sense of exaltation in the Japanese matsuri theme and unify the lively atmosphere of the foyer with that of the Koen-Dori shopping street outside. The south-west façade creates an art wall symbolizing the city of Shibuya with coloured panels fitted as segmented frames which emphasize the concrete texture. The cladding facing Yoyogi Park takes shape as a formal frame around a stage using a motif of theatre curtains. This illustrates Shibuya Public Hall’s presence as a performing arts hub welcoming people with soft drape curtains ready to open and start the story. The hall interior also transforms the seating arena into a piece of art by adopting the same colourful art wall design as the exterior. The colourful gradation throughout underscores the excitement of a theatre space.

Tokyo Port City Takeshiba Residence Tower

Tokyo Port City Takeshiba is a high-rise residential project developed in the Takeshiba district. This residential building stands in an area next to the sea by Takeshiba Pier and is surrounded by the lush green vegetation of the Hama-rikyu Gardens and Kyu-Shiba-rikyu Gardens. The development combines this residential building with the A-block business building. This location not only offers access to Tokyo Bay via its seaport Takeshiba Pier but also provides fantastic access to a monorail (Hamamatsu-cho) bound for Haneda Airport which connects Japan with the rest of the world. Hoshino Architects understands the growing value of Takeshiba as a site opening up Japan to the world. This project aimed to bring creative prosperity to the area as a place full of originality where people with diverse values congregate. The Creative Sail design concept achieved through exterior cladding perfectly tailors this sail motif with a place where all of us can feel the presence of the ocean. This design takes great care to cherish an image of a white sail snapping tight in the beautiful power of the wind as it pushes a vessel across the vast expanse of the sea.

Mid Tower Grand

Mid Tower Grand is a super-high-rise residential project developed in Tsukishima to retain the old downtown atmosphere only walking distance from Ginza and Nihonbashi. Inspired by the Tsukishima name meaning Island of the Moon, our design strove to achieve building exteriors and communal spaces pursuing an unworldly atmosphere created by moonlight and shadow. Strongly emphasizing the look of the top of the building, the top-floor penthouse design takes advantage of an elegantly beautiful arc which seems to float above as if a moon for an iconic tower with a façade impressive even from a distance. The eaves of the grand entrance silhouette this arching design with lush green to present an elegant appearance throughout the entire premises.

Park Homes Komazawa Nichome

Park Homes Komazawa Nichome is a five-story residential complex close to Komazawa Olympic Park. The project took great care in presenting an organic softness necessary for the quiet and leisurely residential neighbourhood lush with plants and trees around Komazawa Park where people celebrate park life. The exterior design utilizes curving lines unique to each floor for a subdued yet dynamic design flowing throughout the entire building. The white-ribbon-like curvature of the balconies flows with movement contorting around the building with a refreshing beauty and inviting presence which complements the lushly green neighbourhood. The soft shadows cast by the concave and convex shapes of the balconies on every floor ensure privacy between units while giving the façade expressiveness as the light escaping dances in the dark of the night. The large part of the ribbon shape circulating down to the entrance of the building to welcomes all who come.

Park Luxe Toranomon

Park Luxe Toranomon is a residential super-high-rise project developed in the Toranomon area. The project also adopts the name Toranomon derived from the word for the Edo Castle gate. Even though this neighbourhood has evolved with extensive redevelopment, nature still thrives personified by Atago-yama Hill which stands 25.7 meters above sea level. Our design takes hints from the Atago Shrine spring gushing from the small waterfall and the hard lines of its famous Shusse-no-Ishidan stone steps. The elegant curvature ascending upwards around the corners of the building emphasizes the form of the tower while a gentle reflection of light made possible by the metallic material used for the curved vertical elements provides the structure with delicate feel. The lower exterior takes advantage of the distinctly soft finish of granite contrasted by the sharp reflection of the mirrored surfaces of the eaves. Together, this design presents something gentle yet vibrant.

Park Court Jingu Kitasando The Tower

Park Court Jingu Kitasando The Tower features an entry to the entrance lounge three-dimensionally weaving the walls and floor together for a stunning presentation throughout while the sculpted curved windbreak guides visitors inside. This project incorporates the NEST design concept on the interior to provide a consistent feel with the woven building exterior. The luxurious entrance lounge melding with the terraced Japanese garden employing lush green landscaping and waterscapes continues on even as visitors come further into the building. The interior design capitalizes on a monochromatic colour against brass to accent the blue and green carpeting which resonates with the landscape design. The building opens into a dynamic space with a three-story vaulted ceiling which traces the large, elongated wall from the entrance. A stunning chandelier and bold staircase diagonally leading underground construct a central interior which can be seen as the heart of the building. The interior design three-dimensionally weaving together vertical and horizontal lines accomplishes enjoyably dynamic communal areas.

Grand Marina Tokyo Park Tower Kachidoki Mid

The design of the Tokyo Park Tower Kachidoki Mid entrance directly connected to the subway from the first basement floor flows out from a helix staircase lofted up dynamically to the first-floor garden. Therein, public spaces dot the hallway leading to and from the offices, stores, and high-rise residences. The project plan weaves together diverse multi-purpose spaces on the eighth floor, which will also visually separate the upper and lower floors on the exterior. The welcoming lounge will stand out through the use of wood and the waterfront view. This design successfully achieves a relaxing boat-deck-like atmosphere. Functional spaces will also span out across the entire eighth floor in the same way as a hotel with everything from guest rooms and a study lounge to party rooms and a cinema lounge as well as a fitness area. The study lounge offers not only a large table but also a counter at a comfortable human scale to use for work, hobbies, and any other interests. The lounge and kids party rooms will leverage glass partitions spanning out seamlessly into the public space with a fully integrated design whether in use or not. The fitness area offers a spectacular view with lines of lights guiding the eyes to the waterfront and nightscape amplifying that sense of exhilaration.

Grand Marina Tokyo Park Tower Kachidoki South

The Tokyo Park Tower Kachidoki South will present a spacious grand entrance with a dynamic wall curvature evoking images of a rocky cliff. The wall stands as if sculpted by waves to produce flow and movement of naturally brilliant, layered rock. The two-story elevated space also employs an open glass façade tracing the marina garden outside. The design accentuates the space as a step lounge with a staircase leading up to the second floor for a transient view achieved by a variety of viewpoints. As visitors move into the wall of cliff stratum, they will find themselves in a sibylline elevator hall inspired by the deep sea. The walls of the elevator hall and entrance lounge link via a rock geometry of curved lines. This will highlight inner and outer worlds which seem carved out of one massive cliff for us all to see. The design balances the interior and exterior of two separate walls stunningly in this way to produce one integrated story. Visitors will find a public space on the second floor at the top of the step lounge. The flow of traffic will transport them into the public space by building excitement as one approaches the second floor with the feel of a sandy beach snuggled up against a large rock cliff. Once through, the design reveals a study space surrounded in books with a calming book corridor warm with wood. A canal side terrace contrasts this book corridor with a luxuriously spacious balcony area blurring the boundaries between interior and the exterior where anyone can spend time on the waterfront. A first-floor green side cottage, laundry and playground facing the outdoor barbecue and other areas in the garden welcome all with inviting relaxation achieved through the natural wood and colours extending the lush greenery from outside into the interior.

Park Court Shibuya The Tower

The rhythmically irregular walls radiate outward from the centre of the building like an exciting story unfolding from the elevator lobby and creative step lounge, which echo the waterscape arrangement of the art wall. The design for the entryway to the elevator lobby fabricates a tunnel varying the textural rhythm of the walls to guide people into a gate expressed by repetitive lines of light. Once through to the elevator lobby, a brilliant red carpet awaits in a symmetrical space to give people the sensation of stepping into somewhere extraordinary. Three-tiered draped panels hang downward as a chandelier flowing from the ceiling in a wave of uneven angles and indirect lighting which elicits a vibrantly fantastic atmosphere.

The communal areas adjacent to the creative step lounge adopt the same project design by echoing the festa, chic, purity, and refinement concepts in each cardinal direction. The party room uses powerful artwork of nature conveying purity which gives colour to a kitchen that arouses creativity with ingredients and in cooking. The guest room encourages a relaxing atmosphere by harmonizing a central space which opens to the lush green outside through a sculpted bed adopting the same green colour tones. The addition of Art using Yoyogi Park as its motif succeeds in cultivating a space where one can sense the passage of time. The fitness room on the 21st floor even enhances awareness during a workout with a full view of the overwhelmingly lush trees of Yoyogi Park. The design even uses artwork on column shapes in an effort to find harmony with the full view of this astounding green landscape.

Park Court Shibuya The Tower

Every aspect of this project adopts the Full of Color, Full of Life concept. Coloured glass surrounds the central spiral staircase, letting in light from the roof to reflect this colour all around the entrance and throughout the living space. By planning a space radiating out from this spiral staircase, the Penthouse Model Room flows spectacularly toward the outer walls on the top floor of the tower. This luxurious space offers an exclusive area with a rooftop terrace and pool to take in the unparalleled view as a residence. The design uses the roughly finished materials contrasted by a sharp unobstructed space with a multitude of colours to express a creative sensibility which makes one feel as though they are living in art. This sensation provides a distinct character which can only be experienced in a model room with such a prolific interior design.

Shibuya City Office

The Shibuya City Office project found its themes in festa, chic, purity, and refinement. Green was chosen as the predominate colour scheme to portray purity throughout the public complex. Each floor of the Shibuya City Office adopts its own unique shade of green in the pursuit of a floor plan that is able to smoothly lead people visiting through the complicated structure to exactly where they want to go. The gradual dark to light colour gradation from the ground to top floor gives both a visual and intuitive awareness to where one is. Thanks to this plan aiming to guide foot traffic not only by written information but also a colour scheme, anyone can smoothly navigate the building to their destination following the colour assigned to each floor.

The arc drawn by the exterior concrete landscaping continues on the interior wall of the entrance to bring the space together in a single arc while white panels with varying angles line the wall. The large arch produced by this design is core to the suggestive moon motif of the entire project. The entrance lounge also acts as a library with rough moon-like stone shelves carving out sections to promote an invitingly open library space.

The entrance inherits the same distinct white-ribbon design as the balconies used on the exterior to create a flowing white ribbon geometry for the wall which invites and guides visitors inside. The design also uses sharp convex and concave boxes in simple white on the wall inside the entrance to not only contrast the soft impression of the exterior but also exhibit various works of art. The entrance then becomes its own small art gallery. The playfulness of the entrance could only be achieved with a design which both accommodates the flow of people and functions as an art gallery space.

The continuous white material of the bridge hoovering above will emphasize the beauty of the waves using the subtle movement in the rhythm of the water surface. The shadow of the bridge cast onto the water surface will even tantalize the imagination with a congregation of waves seeming to wash over one another. The design presenting one fluid motion from three-dimensional geometric changes will delight pedestrians walking across with that feel of movement.

Park Court Shibuya The Tower

The landscape design for the new Shibuya City Office, Shibuya Public Hall, and Park Court Shibuya The Tower high-rise residence extends the tremendously lush greenery of Yoyogi Park through a green plan that loosely unifies these three properties. Hoshino Architects strove to actualize the idea of an informal garden wildly blending a variety of vegetation into the delightful landscape. The building and interior also express the unique diversity of Shibuya and foster a creative environment inspiring various thoughts and ideas even in the plants and trees. The design capitalizes on existing elevation differences via slopes and stairs in a garden landscape that is a joy to walk through before reaching any one of the three complexes.

Civil Garden

The Civil Garden located at the Koen-Dori and Yoyogi Park intersection is a refurbishment project. This new public square acts as a node between the park and city by joining the Shibuya City Office, Shibuya Public Hall, and Park Court Shibuya The Tower high-rise residence. The iconic clock tower incorporates each of the four colours shared as common symbols of the festa, chic, purity, and refinement project themes. This design revitalizes the expressively colourful emblem of Shibuya City. The circular plaza has tiered steps for benches which creates communal space for people to gather. The Civil Garden refurbishment transformed this corner into a wonderful new square where people can wait for friends or spend some quality time looking out over the intersection.

Tokyo Port City Takeshiba Residence Tower

The landscape design for the square adjoining Takeshiba Station took advantage of a coral reef garden plaza concept. The design configures colorful vegetation in a curvilinear orientation while integrating lighting, shapes and colors strongly resembling coral reef. The benches conform to this curvilinear shape to provide a lush, leisurely space offering a sense of freedom outdoors. The design encouraging outdoor meetings and various other activities aims to foster the same spontaneous creativity as an indoor environment.

Mid Tower Grand

The landscape design adopts the same moon motif used throughout the entire super-high-rise project. A large concrete arc leads visitors from the corner of the property to the entrance. Gardens and waterscapes trace the shape of this arc for an open and relaxing space away from the urban bustle. The water surface of the stepped waterscape visible from the entrance lounge gently reflects light effectively blurring the boundary between the interior and exterior of the building. The selection of weeping cherry and willow trees as well as horsetail and other plants ideal for the landscape achieve an attractive space in harmony with the old downtown feel of Tsukishima.

Hopkins Architects Project

Tokyo Midtown Hibiya

Hopkins Architects

Tokyo Midtown Hibiya is an office and commercial complex tower, benefitting from the verdant view of Hibiya Park. The design was implemented while restudying the historical context of Hibiya, the district adjacent to Ginza, Yurakucho and Marunouchi which constitute the heart of Tokyo. Inspired by the Rokumeikan Pavilion that once existed in the Hibiya district and which played a role in the civilization and enlightenment of the Meiji Period, the concept of 'dancing tower' was first conceived from an image of the balls that took place in this pavilion. Such a sweeping and gorgeous image was directly reflected in the design of the tower as an arc form. For the lower podium section facing Hibiya-dori street, the cladding design of the Sanshin Building which once stood in this location was adopted, creating a textured surface finish through the use of different shades of stone masonry. The podium that reflects the memory of the city and the curvilinear tower with its air of a new era harmonise to create an architecture symbolising the Hibiya of the 21st century. Outdoor staircase-cum-spectator seats in a circular plaza where people gather, a beautiful three-storey atrium in the entrance, and a garden terrace on the sixth floor with a magnificent view of Hibiya Park ---- open spaces are so created in which people enter and leave, while gigantic cinemas rent the fourth and fifth floors, thereby producing an environment where people can enjoy Hibiya, the cultural city long known as a Mecca of film and theatre, both indoors and outdoors.

Hopkins Architects Project

Shin Marunouchi Building

Hopkins Architects

The Shin-Marunouchi Building, an office and commercial complex tower, constitutes, along with the Marunouchi Building, the core of the Marunouchi Redevelopment Project launched in 1998 and completed in 2007. Standing in a prime location right in front of the Marunouchi entrance of Tokyo Station facing a street leading to the Imperial Palace, it acts as a major element of the urban landscape in the vicinity. Long established as a distinguished business district since before World War II, Marunouchi, having the headquarters of major corporations and financial institutions, is today Japan's pivotal business centre. The aim was to create a mixed-use high-rise building with the best suited functions for global business, following a thorough understanding of its historical context. The design intention was to bring vitality to the city through the placement of shops and restaurants in the lower section, which continues and merges into the bustling shopping street on the west side of the building. In the tower meanwhile, the most advanced office space is created while maintaining relationships with the adjacent Marunouchi Building. The facade consists of glazed shop windows to animate the street. Bay windows with glass fins are employed on the retail levels creating a unified exterior. The details of the facade design were realised by striking a balance between the close human-scale view and a distant view of the entire tower.

Dubai World Trade Centre

Hopkins Architects

This is a redevelopment of the Dubai World Trade Centre, the key venue for international conferences and trade fairs in Dubai, the economic hub of the UAE. It is a mixed-use complex consisting of five hotel/residential towers (five-star hotels and a serviced apartments), one office tower and seven other buildings (low-rise office buildings, a low-rise designer hotel and a business hotel). Placing emphasis on interior and exterior communal/public spaces such as tree-lined streets and gardens on the ground level and roof-top, the overall site is designed to create venues for people to live, work and enjoy. The development has realized a human-scale townscape of over 1,000,000 square metres. The entire area is focused on landscaping with its well-balanced allocation of streets and public spaces which revitalise the town, and harmonised design of the facades of the high-rise buildings.

Dubai International Finance Centre: Central Park Towers

Hopkins Architects

Located at the end of the Dubai International Finance Centre site, this complex, comprising offices, residences, spas and retailers, marks the final touch to the key axis which connects the Emirates Towers and World Trade Centre. The twin tower project, designed to strike a balance with the twin towers of Emirates Towers, creates a unique presence despite its reduced scale. In the form of a tristar, each tower is divided into three wings presenting a rich iconic expression as a new landmark for the neo-futuristic city ---- Dubai. These two towers comprising the Office Tower and the Residential Tower are united by means of the podium, and house commercial and resort facilities, while connecting to the shopping areas of the Dubai International Finance Centre by a bridge.

Dubai International Finance Centre: Gate Village

Hopkins Architects

Adjacent to the Gate Building located in the heart of Dubai, this is a mixed-use complex consisting of ten buildings raised on a podium. A new urban community has emerged on this podium level with various types of shops and restaurants, while the upper floors of the buildings consist of offices, residences and hotels with penthouses on the top two floors. Learning from the tradition of Arab villages, many shaded areas are created on the streets of the podium by adjusting the height and volume of the buildings in pursuit of outdoor comfort in the severe climate of this region. Having streets of varied width and length together with plazas encountered at times, the narrative-rich townscape creates a vivid atmosphere. Canopies over shops give a human scale to this urban space. All ten buildings use stone for their facades to which different surface finishes and textures are applied in harmony with their orientation. Deeply set windows are designed to block strong daylight and an additional element, inspired by the mashrabiya screen, the traditional sunshield method common to the area, is introduced to create shade. Some staircase towers moderately segment the entire complex, resulting in a unified group of buildings, while giving each of them individuality. The staircases enclosed by thick concrete walls provide good insulation, thereby maintaining a comfortable interior environment.
