W Osaka
by Concrete Amsterdam

Situated on Midosuji Boulevard, W Osaka is a 27-storey high-rise building, designed by Nikken Sekkei and with a Tadao Ando supervised facade.

For W Osaka, concrete absorbed the sites, sounds, flavours and thrills of Osaka. From the simple beauty of the cherry blossoms and ginkgo trees lining the Midosuji Boulevard to the vibrant and busy streetscape of Osaka's nightlife district Dotonburi.

Concrete found inspiration in both the simple and traditional, as well as the modern, obsessive and extravagant, and created a design concept of extravagant simplicity – celebrating the city's true spirit.

This project has been longlisted in the hotel and short-stay interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
