TRUNK(HOTEL) YOYOGI PARK, located in Tomigaya, Tokyo, is a 7-story boutique hotel with 25 guest rooms including 5 suites, a rooftop & lounge that overlooks the lush green Yoyogi Park, along with a restaurant on the ground floor. For this project, we were tasked with the architecture and interior design, FFE selections, and some of the styling for all spaces.

The site is located in a stylish and relaxed residential neighborhood in Tomigaya, within walking distance from the bustling areas of Shibuya. We were approached by our client with the ambition to create a one and only space that would inherit TRUNK's DNA, while being located right in front of Tokyo's iconic Yoyogi Park. With professional creators from Japan and abroad as the target audience, we began to develop a hotel for the neighborhood that would allow city dwellers to enjoy the space as well.

The concept of the hotel is“Urban Recharge”. To realize this throughout the spaces, we designed an infinity pool that frames a beautiful view of Yoyogi Park, along with a pool bar serving oysters, an Italian restaurant open to the city, and compact but relaxing guestrooms. The balcony, which is one of the significant features of the architectural facade and guest rooms of the hotel, is visually connected to the park and the city by distinctive handrails that creates the impression of the hotel as a whole.

Concrete, used for both exterior and interior walls, is also the structure of the building. The raw material is visible from the exterior, creating a neat and calm appearance through the unique rhythm of its construction as a moduled structure. At the same time, a sense of unity between the interior and exterior is maintained by appearing on walls of the corridors and interior. The contrast between the softness of the interior design and the raw concrete creates a unique atmosphere. The distinctive appearance of the washed-out concrete exterior is in perfect harmony with the park's trees and hotel’s integrated greenery, making an impression as if the building has been here for a long time.

For the design of the interior and accompanying objects, we collaborated with Norm Architects to create new furniture for each space from scratch. In particular, small lounge chairs in the guest rooms, outdoor lounge chairs on the balcony, and sofas and lounge chairs with water-repellent upholstery at the pool bar were newly designed and manufactured by Japanese furniture brands, Karimoku and Ariake. Alongside the furniture, custom carpet was newly made by Hotta Carpet in Osaka to suit the space. We aimed to create a sense of harmony throughout the space by designing not only the furniture but also all detailed elements, such as the handles and other small parts that make up the interior.
