Taguig’s Bonifacio Global City will soon host a master-planned community that features Japanese innovations meant to elevate the standards of comfort, and functionality for its residents.
Set to rise in Federal Land’s master-planned community at Grand Central Park in BGC is The Seasons Residences, a mixed-use development featuring upscale residences, curated amenities, and the country’s first Mitsukoshi, a four-storey mall named after Japan’s oldest department store.
Upholding Japanese artistry and excellence are the partners that brought the development to life. The joint venture tapped renowned Japanese firms to pave the way for the authentic design found in all towers: Nikken Sekkei Group for the overall conceptual design; Nomura Co., Ltd for the interior design of the mall; Torafu Architects for the façade concept; and Asao Tokolo for the façade pattern.
The Seasons Residences features impeccable Japanese innovations meant to elevate the standards of comfort, convenience, and functionality for its residents. Innovative Japanese technology is optimized to ensure safety and security at The Seasons Residences. All four towers are equipped with Viscoelastic Coupling Dampers, a breakthrough in earthquake vibration control technology that can withstand earthquakes and high winds, common to the Philippines and Japan.
Each unit is equipped with a unique Japanese storage system, like kitchen floor storage, shoe cabinet, and bedroom closets. The kitchens are fitted with a space-saving kitchen sink with draining and cutting boards to maximize counter space, a rangehood with Japanese oil filter technology, as well as air-washing tiles that minimize excessive humidity and foul odors in the air. As leakage protection, the units are equipped with a sunken slab or a below-floor drainage system for easier pipe maintenance. The development also has eco-friendly solutions like water-efficient Japanese-branded shower toilets in all units and motion sensor lighting in common areas.
Meanwhile, the amenity floor is inspired by the seasons of Japan, with the arrangement of the elements patterned after spring (Haru), summer (Natsu), autumn (Aki), and winter (Fuyu).
A modern gym and landscaped gardens evoke the fresh beginnings of spring, while the swimming pool and karaoke room call to mind the fun of summer. Autumn inspires creativity, so a music room, reading lounge, a business center is provided to accommodate that.
Lastly, The Seasons Residences offers a spa and wellness room reminiscent of Japanese winters.
