Aston Martin is to apply its design mastery to the world of Japanese real estate, as part of a new partnership that sees the first home in Asia to be designed by Aston Martin

The collaboration between the British performance brand and Japanese real estate company, VIBROA commences with the design and construction of № 001 Minami Aoyama, a private home in the Omotesando area of Minami Aoyama. 

Impressions of the home, which features an automotive gallery, wine cellar, home cinema, gym and private spa, have been unveiled, with Aston Martin’s design principles reflected throughout the property. Working with a local architect, the exterior design of the home is led by Aston Martin’s designers, who are also responsible for the interior styling of the property and the carefully selected furniture. 

It is Aston Martin’s first real estate design collaboration in Asia, and follows successful projects in the United States, including the Sylvan Rock private residential estate and exclusive Aston Martin Residences in Miami. 

“The influence of Tokyo culture, with its amazing history and style, holds an important creative space within our design studio,” says Marek Reichman, executive vice president and chief creative officer, Aston Martin. “I see fashion, architectural and even culinary references being considered by our team when developing their work, so its presence can really be felt within our practice. We thought we would return the favor through our first ultra-luxury collaboration in Asia with VIBROA by tailoring our Aston Martin real estate design principles specifically to the No. 001 Minami property. Outside, we’ve created a striking architectural form with clean lines and seamless boundaries so the residents can connect with and experience this unique location. Inside, we’ve catered to the senses, using a holistic combination of elements and materials to create a calm and relaxing space for them to retreat.”
