- Tokyo’s Toggle Hotel won a 2021 Dezeen Award for its unique, two-toned design.
- Designed by Klein Dytham, every room and floor was painted in two colors to create a striking effect.

The triangular-shaped building in Tokyo’s Chiyoda City neighborhood was designed by Klein Dytham Architecture. According to a press release from the architecture firm, the gray-and-yellow pattern on the exterior was inspired by the urban infrastructure and expressway nearby.

Each side of the hotel has green terraces with views of the city and the Tokyo Dome, it adds.
