Park Hotel, Tokyo
This hotel in the Shiodome area opened in 2003 under the concept of ART—atrium, restaurant, travel. It occupies 10 floors of the sleek, triangular Shiodome Media Tower, and pays homage to local traditions of nature with a 10-floor glass roofed atrium (purported to be the largest hotel atrium in Tokyo
), and trees and greenery between the building’s 25th and 34th floors. Since 2012 it has embarked on an artist-in-residence program—every room on the 31st
floor will be painted by a separate artist, with the program to finish in 2016. Non-artist themed rooms are clean-lined and come in light, neutral tones. B&B Italia furnishings are used in all interiors, including the accommodations, dining areas, and lobby.
