Domus Series

Domus Hiroo

Between 1978 and 1993, 19 ‘Domus’ apartments were constructed in prime areas in Tokyo. The apartments had an exclusive and luxurious appeal – due to the high finish, large floor plans and high prices.

The defining feature for many of the Domus buildings is a red brick exterior and wrought iron balcony railings. Domus apartments may be similar in terms of size, European design and quality to the Homat Series of apartments.

Starting with Domus Tokiwamatsu, founder Kaku Tsunemasa paid meticulous attention to make sure each property constructed from 1982 onwards was luxurious and extravagant. The apartments had maple, teak and mahogany wood paneling , Baccarat light fixtures and chandeliers were standard in every apartment, the door knobs were supplied by Fontaine of Paris, ceilings at 2.8~3.0 meters were higher than average apartments, painting was done by craftsmen who worked for the Imperial Household Agency and kitchens were supplied by German maker SieMatic.

Many of the buildings only have a small number of units, and given the 24hr caretaker and security, monthly building management fees for apartment owners are quite high.

As many of the apartments were constructed during the bubble of the late 1980s and early 1990s, Domus apartments have set some very high price records.

When apartments in Domus Motoazabu Annex (1990) were first offered for sale, the average sales price was 8,155,400 Yen/sqm. The price of an apartment in 2010 was 1,176,000 Yen/sqm.
