- ARK Karajan Plaza
- ARK Garden
The large ARK Hills site features multiple buildings with different uses. The fundamental shapes of the buildings differ depending on their uses. Some buildings can be super-high-rise and also have a large flat surface volume, some can be tall but must be slim, and others may require horizontal spread for the low-rise parts. If a good balance can be found between these shapes, then a high-density but appealing landscape and comfortable environment can be created.
A diverse world is expressed from the symbolic ARK Karajan Plaza, through the external spaces of each of these buildings, and to their internal spaces.
The ARK Mori Building was built to meet the needs of an era of internationalization and greater use of information technology and was Japan’s first intelligent building. At the time of completion many international financial institutions then new to Japan located their offices there and the ARK Mori Building was soon recognized as Tokyo’s premiere international finance center.
Furthermore, we have actively worked to add greenery to the building, including the rooftop, since the construction was completed, and the symbolic avenues of cherry trees and the seven ARK Gardens have evolved into a vital urban ecosystem, presenting seasonal landscapes in the heart of the city.
