This foray into the Japanese market is particularly meaningful as Japan, home to six Pritzker-prize winners, is all about high design and forward-thinking architecture
– Robbie Antonio, Revolution Precrafted CEP

Philippine property firm Revolution Precrafted, which specialises in producing modular pavilions and homes, has struck a deal to build at least 85 design-driven prefabricated holiday villas on the island Miyako in Okinawa, Japan.

The company’s range of boutique luxury properties – ranging in size from 23-60sq m (247.5-645.8sq ft) – are designed by some of the world’s best-known architects and designers, including Daniel Libeskind, Christian Portzamparc, Marcel Wanders, Jean Nouvel and the studio of the late Zaha Hadid.

Revolution has also partnered with Japanese architects Sou Fujimoto, Kengo Kuma, Nendo Studio and Tange and Associates to create various pavilions, villas, restaurants and pop-with for various leisure uses.

Speaking about the agreement – the exact details of which remain shrouded in mystery – Revolution CEO Robbie Antonio said: “This foray into the Japanese market is particularly meaningful as Japan, home to six Pritzker-prize winners, is all about high design and forward-thinking architecture – everything that Revolution Precrafted is about.

“This is only the first of many projects we intend to do in Japan.”

The company has licensed partners in over 195 countries to use its prefabricated designs. Among the major agreements it has signed include a recent US$3.2bn (€2.65bn, £2.33bn) deal with developer Seven Tides International to supply luxury apartments and hotel villas for Dubai’s The World Islands.

It is now targeting the growing tourist market on Miyako Island, which has numerous beaches and coral reefs. Tourist arrivals to Okinawa Prefecture rose 9.1 per cent last year to hit 9.4 million.
