Tokyo Edition Toranomon


The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon embraces both the authentic history of the ancient city along with the modern skyscrapers that have recently revitalized the city’s skyline. Conveniently located near the subway stations of Kamiyacho, Roppongi-Itchome and Toranomon, the hotel is steps away from Tokyo’s best neighborhoods and attractions. The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon features 206 guest rooms including 22 suites with iconic views of the Tokyo skyline. The hotel’s design includes 3 restaurants, featuring a specialty restaurant with an outdoor terrace overlooking Tokyo Tower, an all-day dining venue and lobby lounge, 3 lounge bars, custom designed spa with 6 treatment rooms, state-of-the-art gym and 387 sqm of event space with 4 meeting studios.

The 31st floor features the Jade Room Terrace for dining and bar guests to enjoy stunning south facing views overlooking the heart of Tokyo. The terrace features a spacious deck and 7 tree planters clad in IPE wood. Over a series of nursery visits throughout the Saitama prefecture BAM located 7 Bamboo Leaf Oak trees for the deck. The tree’s superior wind resistance, drought tolerance, and evergreen canopy were key factors in addition to its aesthetic appeal.

Over three landscape terraces, the interior of the lobby, the lobby bar, and the hotel ground floor entrance, BAM specified over 725 pots and planters to fill the Toranomon Edition with a lush green landscape. Kengo Kuma's interior design offered excellent natural lighting which allowed BAM to fill the lobby and the bar areas with supersized clusters of plantings, over 220 plants in the interior alone. Because most of this planting lives on the 31st and 32nd floors it requires a great deal of technical and structural coordination especially considering Tokyo’s typhoon exposure. The soil weight alone for all of the plants is roughly 130,000kg! Key species selected for the terraces includes English Ivy, Camelia hedges, Autumn fern, Begonia, and Winter Daphne.

在三个景观平台,大堂内部、大堂酒吧和酒店一层入口处,BAM摆放了725盆植物,为虎之门艾迪逊酒店营造了郁郁葱葱的绿色景观。隈研吾的室内设计提供了良好的自然采光,对于BAM在大堂和酒吧区域种植大量的植物创造了条件,仅在室内植物种类就已超过220种。因为考虑到大部分的植物种植在31层和32层,因此对于结构和技术的考量显得尤为重要,特别是暴露于东京的台风之中,最终仅所有植物用到的土壤重量就达到了13万公斤! 另外,屋顶露台的主要植物种类包括英国常青藤、山茶花、秋蕨、秋海棠和冬季达芙妮。
