The iconic British car brand is behind a luxurious property that lets the owner park prestige cars near their dining table.
Aston Martin has partnered with Japanese concierge firm VIBROA to create № 001 Minami Aoyama, which sits in the highly desirable Omotesando area of Tokyo.
The four-story home, complete with a roof terrace and stunning views of the city, is already sold to a private buyer and is scheduled for completion in November 2023.
Aston Martin is not confirming the price for the property, but the local market suggests it could have gone for around £18m.
№ 001 has many high-end features, most notably in a so-called "automotive gallery" that allows you to view your prized car collection from your dining table.
There is also a wine cellar, home cinema, gym, and private spa.
Aston Martin said the new design partnership with VIBROA forms part of their wider strategic growth plans in Japan, with the brand seeking to capitalize on the market’s huge commercial potential and increasing consumer demand.
Marek Reichman, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin said: “The influence of Tokyo culture, with its amazing history and style, holds an important creative space within our design studio. 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."
Toshiyuki Yoshida, Chief Executive Officer of VIBROA said: “VIBROA is committed to providing our clients with a priceless experience and added value in the world of luxury real estate through access to the world’s finest products and services. We are therefore delighted to be working with such an iconic ultra-luxury brand as Aston Martin, whose renowned design philosophy and expertise brings a unique dimension not just to this home, but the wider world of real estate in Japan.”
Greg Adams, Regional President - Japan and South Korea of Aston Martin said: “As Aston Martin grows in Japan, we are passionate about finding innovative ways to bring our ultra-luxury brand to life and resonate with local consumers. We are delighted to be working with VIBROA, helping create what we believe is a perfect home for an Aston Martin owner, with design elements inspired by our breath-taking portfolio of ultra-luxury and high-performance cars.”
