Entry Description: Futako Tamagawa, is Tokyo’s largest single development. Conran and Partners design concept responds to the site’s location on the edge of Tokyo, its adjacency to the Tamagawa River and the shift across it, from the urbanity of the railway station to the west, to the park to the east. The scheme reflects the site's important transitionary role at the threshold between city and nature. A commuter journey has been created with wellbeing at its heart, taking people from work to home through a central ‘green ribbon’ inspired by nature alongside the river. Leading from the train station through a commercial quarter with shops and offices to residences and, eventually, a park; building density, materials, greenery and spatial design has been used to create an unwinding journey that subtly eases the transition from busy town centre to relaxing private space.
