Ritz-Carlton announced the completion of what the hotel is calling a  “transformation” instead of just a mere renovation of the Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo hotel in the city’s Roppongi district. The property is located in the Midtown Tower, which was the tallest office building in Tokyo until 2014.

The project was led by the Tokyo-based firm Design Studio Spin, which brought Japanese culture and landscape into the design.  The hotel’s guest rooms were redone in dark shades of greys, purple, and red, inspired by the skyline of the city, while the wallpaper in some rooms has a design intended to represent bamboo or the imaginary So-so-ge flora given to Buddha.

The property’s redesigned Club Lounge is intended to provide guests with a residential feel and is divided into four spaces, namely reception, garden terrace, dining room, and library lounge.  The design of the space includes touches inspired by outdoor elements, including Japanese stone pavement, the nearby Hinoki park, and leaves.

The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo first began the first phase of renovations in December 2014, with the re-opening of its restaurant, Hinokizaka.
