 A number of our projects have been featured in Japanese architecture magazines, such as Global Architecture and Shin-Kenchiku. Moreover, several projects have been awarded prizes in the design field. Our Jakuseian project was granted Good Design Award in 2006.  Essential aspects of our design work include having quality and dignity at the same time, creating architecture that matures as time passes and actualizing places where Japanese art, craft and architecture can meet and join together.

■Design Approach

 What I expect in designing a house-while it is obvious a quality in finished product, I would also like to provide a dignity over the quality. I believe it is important how such notion of dignity is expressed in the form of an architecture. To accomplish that task, I shall never compromise as an architect, and for that I do me best earnestly. I believe it is the same with others, but I do not design a building as a task-and I quintessentially enjoy producing a building. Such attitude might be the foundation to develop a sympathetic resonance between the architect and the client. It is my pleasure to create something that promote such sympathy, which is more than just producing pieces of my work.  It sounds this way of designing would fall into a design depending on my taste, but I think of a good house to be the one that takes 5, 10 years to turn into better dwelling by aging. Thus I am not interested in the fresh but short shelf-life design, which falls into a temporal, trendy taste. I consider a building to acquire dignity by engaging into every aspects and details of the building, which enables spirituality to come into life. Such dignity and spirituality would allow space for buildings to age in time.
