While the kitchen serves a practical function for most cultures, for the Japanese, it is the very heart and soul of a home. The role of the kitchen in bringing a home together is evident in Japanese design, where it does not only give emphasis on purpose and beauty but how it transforms into a functional and meaningful space.
One of the Japanese design elements at play is the concept of Shibui, which refers to a sense of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. This design philosophy champions minimalism and organization, where everything has its place, things are kept simple, all you need is within reach. The Seasons Residences, an upscale Japanese-inspired residential development that will soon rise in Bonifacio Global City, follows this aesthetic, especially in its kitchen.
Envisioned with a typical Japanese kitchen in mind, The Seasons Residences channels simplicity and functionality in design to maximize the usefulness of the space. It employs unique Japanese design elements to keep things practical, clean, and beautiful.
The Seasons Residences’ kitchen design is all about simplicity and elegance. All the different elements combine to form a harmonious balance of functionality and aesthetics which adheres to the Shibui concept. First off, the Japanese-style and space-saving kitchen sink marries form and function. It is larger than normal, giving you the freedom to do more tasks. The sink itself is recessed, providing a perfect space to put cutting and draining boards that effectively double your work area. Another key feature is the kitchen floor storage, a unique addition to the normal storage areas in the kitchen. Kitchen floor storage keeps heavy items such as bottles of sake and cans of soy sauce from falling over during earthquakes, and it makes putting away weighty objects easier. A common sight in traditional Japanese homes, this space-saving feature can be maximized to hold non-perishable goods.
From the kitchen to other areas, The Seasons Residences aims to give its residents a genuine Japanese community.
