Instagram = Our dictionaryinstagram

Hoshino Architects based in Tokyo collaborates with a variety of artists. We also post inspiring images to Instagram daily from those exploring the city that is Tokyo and our design process to others illustrating a cityscape which we helped shape with the completion of each new building. We hope this collection of Instagram images will share the appeal of Tokyo as it continues to evolve while marking our trajectory not only as Hoshino Architects but also as a group of designers.

Tokyo Intervention & Urban Surface

Tokyo Intervention = Our Action
Our architectural, space and infrastructure designs intervene in shaping one of the world’s largest and most prominent cities. Tokyo stretches out almost infinitely as an urban group of districts with diverse histories, cultures, and geographical contexts, which contribute to the pull the city has on people. Hoshino Architects aims to maximize the appeal Tokyo has by sharing the significance of our intervention in the city through pictures.

Urban Surface = Our design source
We capture the many faces of Tokyo and extract the elements shaping the surface of the city from the light and colour to the landscape. Urban Surface is the means by which we communicate the ideas layering these elements to abstractly express the urban atmosphere. This amplifies the history, culture, and geographical contexts throughout the city to provide an opportunity for everyone to explore each area and atmosphere. Urban Surface is our design source as we shape the Tokyo cityscape.

Architectural introduction to our project – Mid Tower Grand facade

ミッドタワーグランド ファサード

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 facade impressive even from a distance. 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.
