Grosvenor Asia Pacific today unveiled its latest residential development, The Westminster Nanpeidai, to the Hong Kong market

The 52-unit low-rise apartment building is located in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, and is the first Japanese project to be undertaken by renowned UK architects Eric Parry Studio. A carefully curated design team of Japanese master craftsmen have been brought together to work on the design-led residences, including stone artist Masatoshi Izumi, lighting designer Satoshi Uchihara, and plaster sculptor Shuhei Hasado.


Original architecture for the structure was by Junzo Sakakura, one of Japan’s most well-regarded architects who also worked as studio chief for Le Corbusier’s Paris Atelier. Eric Parry Studio decided to retain the original modernist elements of the building, and have added features such as metal slats – in reference to traditional Japanese slatted walls and doors – to update the look of the facade. The firm has also used materials and concepts rarely seen in Japan for the project, bringing both subtle Japanese and European elements to the residence.


Local artists and artisans have created a central courtyard garden which sits adjacent to the entrance lobby and features bespoke lighting from designer Satoshi Uchihara. Each unit features floor-to-ceiling windows, herringbone floors and a bath constructed from cypress wood. Italian marble can be found in the bathroom and kitchen areas, along with top-quality fixtures and fittings. The penthouse properties each have their own terraced area, while a communal green space is available for other tenants on the roof.
