Tokyo Kaikan Japan
Alliance Award Winner of the year 2020
This history of this building was fully researched and understood by Nikken Sekkei before this third generation design was completed and the building delivered.
The team worked together in a single spirit to respect memories and feelings, creating a long and impressive entrance way with dramatic eaves, evoking "omotenashi" - the word to express hospitality in a Japanese way.
The way that the original buildings were combined with modern solutions was a defining feature, creating a building to last into the future. The cost control methodology was also a notable and successful component of the management of the project.
