[Overview] Designed to accommodate the Tokyo Olympics/Paralympics in 2020. Shibuya is the key development area in Tokyo, with Tokyu Hotel being one of the landmarks in it. The renovation is being done in order to allow and attract a greater number of foreign tourists. We executed renovation for the guest salon 'Executive Lounge' and a new concept for the suite rooms called: 'Junior Suite - Fuji'.
[Design Concept] Based on the hotel's design concept of "Selection, Tradition, Creation", we reinterpret 'New Creation' as the theme for new SHIBUYA city.
[Executive Lounge] The interior design concept is 'Modern Japanese'. One of the focal points of this design is the carpet, which is predominantly Cerulean blue with varying shades of gray and laced with golden threads. This is meant to symbolize the sky with a rolling sea of clouds. This idea is inspired by Emakimono(an illustrated narrative popular during the 11th to 16th century Japan) specifically coming from Gotou Museum. This particular Emakimono was chosen for its unique representation of varying sunlight and lightings. The new reception desk is made out of a single wild wood plate. Guests can have a seat while checking-in/out. In addition, blue and purple fabrics are added to the accent color to accentuate refinement.
[Junior Suite - Fuji] The bed board, the main point of the design, is inspired by Mt. Fuji, a renowned emblem of the diverse and rich nature of Japan. The bed board has a three-dimensional effect which is seen sunlight is cast. Bedroom and living room areas are now separated by contrast and division. Living room area is a combination of Tatami flooring, lounge chair with table, and a window that provides for a relaxing view of Tokyo. Guests can also sit on the comfortable Tatami flooring.
