Our work with the Mori Building Company, Tokyo’s largest private developer, began with Roppongi Hills; a bold mixed-use regeneration project in the heart of Tokyo. We were involved in the architecture, interior design, landscape and graphic design of the new 27 acre urban quarter; providing some 800,000sqm of office, residential and retail space, as well as a hotel, cinema and new broadcasting headquarters for TV Asahi.

Since then we have continued to design further residential projects for the Mori Building Company in Tokyo. Kamiyamacho is a low-rise housing project consisting of 26 apartments. The building is conceived as three elements, layered one in front of the other: a curved patinated copper shield containing bedrooms, a limestone-clad box holding the kitchens and vertical circulation, and a steel and timber box for the main living spaces.

Motoazabu is a residential development comprising of eleven luxury apartments. The apartment type, named “Hidden Beauty,” was designed with traditional Japanese concepts in mind. Sliding glass screens divide large spaces giving flexibility of use and a timber storage wall extending the length of the apartment opens to reveal colourful compartments containing treasured possessions.
 
The redesign of Ark Hills Spa created a new contemporary aesthetic for this health and fitness club. Evocative lighting plays a key role in generating a soothing, restorative and luxurious atmosphere. Blue and white tiles in the main pool wrap up the long axial wall which is backlit in blue for a slightly futuristic effect. The sensuous jacuzzi is made of Italian limestone and lined with small circular blue tiles.

Our second spa project for the Mori Building Company is located in a 44-storey residential tower in Roppongi Hills, which we designed as part of the original masterplan. The 1,900sqm facility includes a swimming pool, saunas, hot tubs, massage and treatment rooms, a studio, gym and restaurant.

Conran and Partners sensitivity toward colours and materials, and the way their designs capture the essence of our project concept, has exceeded my expectations. They have made a significant contribution to the success of Roppongi Hills.
