Trunk Hotel Architecture in Tokyo

Architecture Dark geometric forms

Looming over a quiet street in Tokyo's Shibuya neighborhood, Trunk Hotel is housed inside two adjacent four-story buildings.

The hotel structures take on dark geometric forms, as designed by Mount Fuji Architects. While a clean-lined glass and wood chapel perches on the rooftop, the hotel’s gray stone façade—complete with tiered balconies and tumbling greenery—hides an interior that includes four banquet halls and a lounge with a wall made from upcycled woods from old Japanese houses.

Interior design New and millenia materials

The building adheres to the old-meets-new concept and makes for a texturally rich aesthetic.

Upon passing a Zelkova tree at the entrance, guests emerge into a world of Japanese-made furniture by brands such as Truck and Tokyo Cork Project—the latter using old wine corks to make the statement stools in the lounge.
