The hotel’s facade and interior design are the work of world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma.
Fusing industrial materials with natural wood, this new hotel exemplifies the contrast found in Oshiage, which retains the feeling of a bygone Edo era, while being within the modern metropolis of Tokyo.
The hotel opens directly to city space and open sky, all from a little alley in the new Shitamachi “downtown” of Tokyo. Travelers from all over the world come together here—a new base for Tokyo street culture.
Born in 1954, he graduated from the Department of Architecture Graduate School at the University of Tokyo and established Kengo Kuma and Associates in 1990.
He is currently a professor at Tokyo University. In 1997, he won the AIJ Prize for “Noh Stage in the Forest/Tome City Heritage Hall,” and has subsequently won many awards from overseas organizations for works including “Water/Glass” (1995), “Stone Museum” (2000), the Bato Hiroshige Museum of Art (2000) and others. In 2010, he received the Mainichi Art Award for the Nezu Museum.
Recent works include the Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum (2010), the Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center (2012), and Nagaoka City Hall Aore (2012).
At present, he is also involved in designing the new national stadium for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (scheduled for completion in 2019.)
