In the middle of Omotesando, “Omotesando Hills” opened its doors in February, 2006. It is a six-story building consisting of three basement floors and three floors above ground, filled with sophisticated shops for adults, and stylish restaurants. This building replaced the Dojunkai Aoyama Apartments, which were built in 1927. Omotesando Hills was designed by the architect Tadao Ando, who has designed many well-known buildings, including the Chichu Art Museum in Naoshima, Kagawa. Inside Omotesando Hills, a walkway spirals up in winding fashion to the upper floors. One of the architect’s signature characteristics, the use of bare concrete on the walls, is seen in some places in the building. The external appearance blends in well with the zelkova trees along the street, and this spot is now considered a prime example of the outstanding and beautiful scenery of Omotesando.
