This hotel and shopping center was built in the district that will be one of the cores of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Its exterior lighting was therefore signify its nocturnal identity and connect the two parts of this complex. For this strategic place in transport, it was also necessary to think of an original lighting of the passage gallery in the middle of the complex. The architect also requested I.C.O.N. to supervise the interior lighting.
This hotel is the first entrusted to our firm by the brand Daiwa Roynet, to kick off a great series of hotel chain!
For the facade of this high hotel tower, semi-custom-made spots were adapted to create a very white light, bringing out the tiling that covers it.
On the shopping center, the large beam was also magnified in white to express the continuity of the complex. In the same way, landscape lighting and exterior circulation reinforce this effect, while exalting the design of Azusa Sekkei.
In addition, for the gallery which connects 2 stations, the idea was to give a feeling of the seasons change and to focus on the structure of the canopy. Thus, its indirect lighting in twelve colors changes according to the month of the year (cherry blossoms pink in April, ocean blue in July, autumnal orange in October...) and sometimes has slight movements.
