ao aoyama building

the ao aoyama building is situated on the border between two urban zones. on the one side, there is a row of medium size commercial buildings which are lining aoyama-dori. on the opposite northern side are low rise residential units and small shops creating a network of pedestrian scale streets.

the ao building is a high-rise building of 90 meters. due to its size, the ao aoyama building is an architectural highlight.  the tower is a commercial rental complex with restaurants, retail and service shops. the wedge shaped tower offers great views over shibuya, while the step garden on the podium is a green oasis in aoyama.
