Grand Hyatt Tokyo opened its door together with the opening of Roppongi Hills in 2003. Since the opening, 13 years has passed as it offered a special place in the town of Roppongi by playing a perfect role for its location in Tokyo. The current Grand Hyatt is now ready to proceed to the next stage.

Within this current status, the area designed at the Grand Hyatt is the banquet which gains most of the revenue within the hotel. Offering flexibility to the meet the guest’s needs in a functional method leads to a toxic condition in the hotel industry – “a glamourous yet steady environment”.

Hyatt brand has always strived for innovation reflecting the essence of each generation from an acute angle. A simple brief for this project was given by Hyatt – “Banquet with a Residential Feel”. This word “feel” not only defines a way to perceive things in a superficial and ordinary manner but to foresee things beyond a superficial way in order to wisely understand the nature of things.

Simply put, rather than a typical understanding of “residential feel”, our design had to portray the deeper meaning of this word. This banquet shall become a place that will largely change the value and usability of such venues. This change is the value Hyatt offers and we must pass on this attitude as the Hyatt brand continues to evolve.
