The 39-storey tower is located in the center of Tokyo. The upper nine floors are occupied by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The complex also includes tiers of shops, restaurants and offices proper.
The glazed volume of the skyscraper grows out of a five-storey basement lined with natural stone and decorated with a semblance of a colonnade. Thus, a visual connection is created with the old headquarters of the company, located in the next quarter.
The tower itself consists of separate ledges, each of which differs from the one below by a thicker "grid" of windows, which merges into a single plane in the upper part of the building.
The interior design of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel belongs to the architects Lim Theo Wilkes (Singapore) and Rui Kosaka (Tokyo). Its theme was the traditional Japanese motif of "forests and waters", which, along with local materials (first of all, various types of wood and types of textiles), was included in a completely modern general solution.
