Sydney, Australia, May 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Japan has fascinated the world for centuries with its distinctive design style and has attracted the attention of homeowners and property developers alike. More recently, hotel brands, residential real estate, and individuals have discovered that Japanese design principles not only provide visual beauty, but also promote healthy lifestyles and a calming environment that are highly desirable in a post-pandemic world. Crown Group, a leading Australian real estate group specializing in luxury property development, understands the benefits of incorporating these design elements into their properties and proudly works with renowned Japanese architects such as Kengo Kuma and Koichi Takada.

“We strive to offer innovative and well thought-out designs in all of our properties. Therefore, it is a privilege to work with creative architects like Kengo Kuma and Koichi Takada, who understand and implement our visions so well, ”said Iwan Sunito, CEO and co-founder of Crown Group. “The combination of typical Japanese features and a sensitivity to detail – the lack of everything that is not needed – with accessible luxury helps make a home environment an inviting and anxiety-relieving retreat.”

Mastery by Crown Group, which comprises 374 luxury apartments in five different buildings in Sydney, Australia, shows many Japanese design principles such as playing with different types of light that create a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere in a room and model a Zen philosophy. Inspired by the interplay of light (Hikari) and shadow (Kage), the apartment interior designed by the award-winning Koichi Takada Architects offers a modern and sophisticated urban lifestyle. The Japanese-inspired conceptual interior design offers natural, neutral, modern luxury, lavishly with wood-like materials and soft, warm tones. The development also includes a street-level retail district with a mix of restaurants, cafes and shops, including Sydney’s first Japanese-style restaurant street, which offers city dwellers an unparalleled and authentic dining experience.

The story goes on

“With regard to the interior, Koichi Takada and Kengo Kuma developed two color schemes. One is a dark color scheme and one is lighter, and both are designed to be Japanese style, ”Sunito said. “You can see that the monochrome interior look is very simple, and it is designed to bring real, upscale, low-key luxury into development.”

Kengo Kuma is a highly acclaimed Japanese architect known for creating some of the most extraordinary public buildings and homes in the world. With offices in Tokyo and Paris, he is famous for his use of cedar wood, often combining wood and the natural surroundings with modern urban structures. Some of the most notable works by Kuma include the Suntory Museum of Art in Tokyo, the Bamboo Wall House in China, the headquarters of the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) Group in Japan, and the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, which will be open from July 23 to 8 August 2021 the Olympic Games will take place.

At Mastery by Crown Group, Kengo Kuma applied the Japanese design method of incorporating natural elements into the home and ushered in a new era of luxurious urban living that creates communities and connects people with nature. Japanese architecture does not seek to compete with nature, but aims to integrate a building seamlessly with the natural environment, which helps reduce stress. According to Sunito, this is in line with Kengo’s approach and the Crown Group’s goal of creating an urban resort with numerous natural features.

The simplicity of the architecture at Mastery by Crown Group is complemented by a lot of green planted into the outer facade of one of the buildings – a concept of “stacked forests” that is a first for Sydney. The green is reflected and projected onto the building opposite and carries the green motif through the outside area for enjoyment. The facade is complemented by roof gardens that are visible from the street and create natural passages in the urban environment that passers-by can enjoy. In addition to the biophilic design elements built into the architecture and interior, the green in the urban environment increases sustainability by reducing carbon monoxide, increasing energy efficiency and improving air quality.
