Someone call Kevin McCloud: Aston Martin is now designing houses in Japan
Aston goes all Grand Designs with a new four-storey house in Tokyo
Seemingly fed up of building cars, Aston Martin has now turned its attentions to Japanese houses – with a new four-storey home planned in the fancy Omotesando area of Minami Aoyama, Tokyo. Yeah, bit strange we know…
Of course, Aston is already in the real estate game having worked on its Sylvan Rock house near New York and the giant skyscraper of Aston Martin Residences in Miami, but this is apparently the first ‘luxury home’ that it has designed in Asia.
It’s been drawn up by Aston’s designers in collaboration with Japanese ‘concierge leader’ VIBROA, with the house known as No 001 Minami Aoyama. We’re told it features an automotive gallery (which clearly is a fancy name for a garage that you can see into from the living room), a wine cellar, a home cinema, a gym and a spa.
What you see above is the architect’s equivalent of a concept car render, with the final production house set to be unveiled in November 2023. We’ve already asked to take it for a test drive, but Aston says it’s already sold to a private buyer. Booo.
Aston says its “design principles [are] reflected throughout the property” – can you spot them, Internet? And don’t say the Vantage in the garage…
