We find out more.
Autograph Collection is coming to Tokyo
A new addition to Marriott’s Autograph Collection is due to arrive in the Japanese capital of Tokyo in April 2020.
Designs for this stunning new property have been released by hospitality architecture and interiors firm Wilson Associates, who have many years of experience designing some of the most impressive hotel interiors around the world.
The hotel will be in the Takeshiba Waterfront Development Project and will occupy 225,000 sqft (20,900 sqm) of space in this mixed-use complex.
This 265-key property will fit perfectly into the Collection’s carefully selected roster of properties, all of which boast unique identities inspired by their desirable destinations in the most far flung corners of the world.
Wilson Associates tease design renders
Marriott has whetted the appetite of the hospitality industry and guests alike with some new renders of the proposed hotel.
The main image is one of a communal lobby space which has an intricate ceiling design that evidently takes its cues from Japanese traditions and crafts. Woven ceiling panels are set off by shimmering artwork which hangs from the ceiling and snakes over the communal lobby space.
Art is sure to take centre stage in this Autograph Collection hotel, as the designers have curated a wide range of tasteful artworks which evoke intimacy and nostalgia.
The material palette resonates with the hotel’s location in Tokyo, and various elements, accents and features recall Japanese water gardens, saltwater ponds and sacred sites.
The lobby will also be a place for social interaction, with a long communal table forming the centrepiece of the entrance, while striking features such as lacquered doors mark entry points into the ballroom and banquet spaces.
Luxury and utility are combined in the guestrooms, where flexibility is maximised through the inclusion of collapsible closets and generous open plan layouts.
