Miyamaedaira Grand Opening
From alternative-lifestyle masters Social Apartments comes the latest residence on their roster of remarkable dwellings. The new house is based just 20 minutes from Shibuya in a charming residential area called Miyamaedaira, ensconced on the Denentoshi line.
The interior has been lovingly created by a designer who has an impressive array of cool cafés on his résumé. He was chosen to replicate the easy-breezy flavor of a stylish café in residents’ living arrangements. The multicolor tiles and colorful carpets compliment the rustic atmosphere, and the unique selection of unpaired furniture caters to those who live kicking back, coffee in hand. A unique community is expected to form from the 25 culture buffs beginning to fill its spaces.
The full range of facilities on offer include a gorgeous shared lounge, a kitchen with a counter, a library/workspace with Wi-Fi, a party room, soundproof room, beauty room, and a fully equipped, free-of-charge laundry room.
Come by on weekends during the day for an open house. If you can’t make weekends, reserve any weekday for a private tour.
What’s more, they are giving away a one-month’s free rent voucher—worth up to ¥80,000—for those who come to the open house.
Ask about discounts for long-term stays.
