What does it take to bring a piece of Japan to Manila? Collaboration is needed to seamlessly fuse Japanese innovation with Filipino hospitality and create a unique development that will redefine the real estate market.

The Seasons Residences in Bonifacio Global City, the upscale Japanese-inspired condominium project by Federal Land, Inc. in partnership with Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd., is set to exceed the standard. Through the shared expertise of the developer and its world-renowned partners, the design and structure of The Seasons Residences make it more than just a technical collaboration, but of cultural harmony as well.

Industry experts from design, architecture, and engineering from both Tokyo and Manila were commissioned for the project, making The Seasons Residences a masterwork of collaborative design.

The master plan is designed by Nikken Sekkei, a Japanese architectural firm ranked #2 in Building Design’s 2019 World Architecture top 100 list. Established in 1900, Nikken Sekkei has completed over 20,000 projects in 40 countries and 200 cities worldwide.

Their expertise is not just limited to architecture and design, but also in construction-related services which ensures consistency and quality of work. Some of their recent notable projects are Roppongi Hills Residences and Tokyo Midtown in Tokyo, Japan. Lending a hand with their prominent interior design work is Nomura Co., Ltd. led by Creative Director Shunsuke Saeki. Renowned for its “space creation” and “space visualization” philosophies, the company is tasked to design the commercial area to incorporate distinct Japanese spatial characteristics.

The concept behind the façade of the podium, on the other hand, is the brainchild of Torafu Architects led by up-and-coming designers, Koichi Suzuno and Shinya Kamuro. The company has established itself on a wide array of projects ranging from architectural design, interior design, exhibition space design, to product design. Working hand-in-hand with Torafu’s façade concept is Asao Tokolo, a modern master of pattern design and the artist behind the Tokyo Olympics 2020 emblem.

Working with Japanese partners are elite groups of Filipino architects and engineers.

Arch. Carmelo Casas of Casas+Architects spearheads the construction process of The Seasons Residences as the Project Architect. Known for remarkable landmarks such as the Grand Hyatt Manila and Solaire Resort and Casino, Casas+Architects is sought after for their expertise in high-rise residential and office building design and master planning.

Since both Japan and the Philippines experience frequent earthquakes, The Seasons Residences needs to be properly equipped to mitigate the effects of violent tremors. Engr. Raul Manlapig of Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Ltd. provides the structural, wind, and seismic engineering services for The Season Residences. The company equips The Seasons Residences with Viscoelastic Coupling Dampers (VCDs), a Japanese damping technology which absorbs wind or quake-induced vibrations in tall buildings.

Federal Land Inc. also tapped DCCD Engineering Corporation as the MEPF Consultant of the project. DCCD Engineering is in charge of the design and implementation of the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection plans of The Seasons Residences. DCCD Engineering Corporation has an impeccable track record of completing more than 10,000 engineering and consulting assignments since its inception in 1957.

To complete the Japanese aesthetics of The Seasons Residences, GF & Partners provides a Zen-inspired interior design to the amenities and common areas in collaboration with Japanese partners. GF & Partners is an architecture and design firm known for their contributions to The Peninsula Manila, GT Tower International, and US Embassy in the Philippines.

The coming together of industry experts will set the bar higher for upscale residential areas in BGC and the country. The Seasons Residences is poised to become the standard of premium living with its sophisticated design and world-class safety features. Its timeless aesthetic, combined with improved safety and comfort made possible through advanced design and engineering ensures that it will be a landmark in BGC’s skyline for decades to come.

To know more about the project, call The Seasons Residences hotline at (632) 8359-6756, email us at invest@federalland.ph or visit the showroom at 7th Ave. cor. 34th St., Grand Central Park, North BGC, Taguig City (across the Lexus Manila Showroom). Haru, the development’s first tower, is set for completion in 2023, while Mitsukoshi Mall will open in 2021. Natsu, its second tower is now on pre-selling stage.
