Policy and Concept
As the empowerment of women progresses and the ideal lifestyle and happiness of women diversifies, support for the changes to the diverse ways of life in both residences and offices is necessary.
The Tokyo Tatemono Group incorporates the point-of-view of women in the development of housing and believes in supporting the empowerment of women by supporting their lifestyle through housing development.
In addition, we understand their challenges through questionnaires for female employees and incorporate solutions in facility plans for buildings with the aim of a comfortable work-friendly office for women.

Project Bloomoi: Thinking About Housing that Brings More Happiness to Working Women
Tokyo Tatemono has carefully researched the insights of working women and has been advancing the Brillia Bloomoi Project since 2012 to consider and promote the realization of housing that responds to the diversified needs. We hope to broadly support not only working women but include women who are engaging in household affairs, childcare, nursing care, community contribution, and learning at schools in this project.
The members of this project mostly made up of female employees of our company value sympathy, dialogue, and co-creation and believe in lifestyles in which working women can live unique lives with more happiness. Bloomoi, a word coined by combining bloom and moi (me), incorporates the meaning of seeing the many smiles and talent of working women fully bloom with grace.
In this project, we not only conduct product development in the floor plans of the condominiums and the housing facilities but also expand it from the soft perspective, including management and aftercare services, to continually bring out products that take advantage of the Bloomoi idea.
Searching for Co-creation Needs
Working women in fact have a wide range of life styles. Bloomoi builds new business schemes of building through the co-creation process. We examine the insights of working women through efforts such as events, dialogue, and Facebook and bring those insights into product planning. The floor plans and facilities designed based on the survey results and feedback we receive will brush up planning after an exchange of ideas with working women.
Adoption of Multiple Bloomoi Project Products at Brillia Oyama Park Front
Brillia Oyama Park Front completed in October 2018 is located in a convenient location within a 2 km distance from the city center of Ikebukuro on the Fukutoshin line that is progressing with the re-development project, and many of the residents are working women. This property has adopted facilities developed in the Bloomoi project in each location so that working women will live with more happiness.
In addition to Bloomoi Pocket and Bloomoi Library, we have equipped the interior of the model room with an L-shaped sofa and wall storage. Moreover, select kitchens and washstands chosen to match lifestyles with a track-record of use in many other Brillia buildings have also been adopted.
TOPICSWork Opinion Poll Through the Bloomoi Project
The Bloomoi Project conducted a Work Opinion Poll for 400 men and women between their 20s and 50s in an effort to support work-style innovation through the living space.
What comes to mind when you hear work-style innovation? More than 60% of all the respondents answered "reforms to long working hours" (61.0%). People have the strong impression that work-style innovation is limited to reforms in the workplace and are unaware of changing work styles such as telework and telecommuting where someone can work from anywhere.
On the other hand, we discovered women were more aware than men about telework options, such as 48.0% of women in their 20s responding that they would like to telecommute if possible. Moreover, we found the demand for a work-friendly environment in the living space with many people responding that a network and other infrastructure (54.6%) as well as an environment for concentration (53.8%) were vital in accommodating telework at home.
We reflected the results of this survey during the planning for Brillia Tsurumaki and equipped the condominiums with wireless LAN as a standard option in addition to arranging a Bloomoi Library central to the living space to fully support work-style innovation. This plan created an environment conducive to concentration with sliding doors while providing a view of the living space through glass. We also provided a sleek, smooth flow to and from bathrooms and kitchens.
