Otemachi Park Building, Tokyo, Japan

dpa lighting consultants are delighted to share pictures of their third major building in the Marunouchi  / Otemachi district of central Tokyo. We feel very privileged to have worked with Mitsubishi Estate Co. and Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei, inc. and be part of the incredible repositioning of Marunouchi over the last 15 years.

This development is the first project extending Marunouchi into Otematchi and as well as containing large amounts of prime office space including serviced apartments, is the first in this district. dpa were responsible in collaboration with Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei, inc. for designing the exterior lighting of the Towers, Gardens and Roof Terraces together with the incredibly substantial Office Lobby, Apartment Lobby and Apartment Public Spaces.

The buildings close proximity to the Emperors Palace is highly significant and the carefully sculpted landscape around the base of the towers has a harmonious link to the Palace Gardens.

The Architectural lighting of this structure focus on the crown of the two towers with their slightly varying architectural forms, and the landscaped base of the building. Both have carefully integrated light coordinated with the architectural and landscape fabric.
