We integrate original ideas, and forms with traditional Japanese techniques, and materials in order to establish a new international style appropriate to these times. This is in stark contrast to the minimalist «white box» aesthetic that most people associate with
contemporary Japanese architecture. The appearance, and inner space of our buildings use very spontaneous forms, and gestures to create a dialog with the surrounding environment, and its inhabitants. Indeed, in our approach, the building is part of the environment – part of nature, as are we. This is a reflection of the Japanese idea of animism, deeply rooted the Shinto philosophy, in which every object, space, and phenomenon has its own soul. Each project is intrinsically connected to its surroundings, considering local history, and traditions, using local materials, and craftsmanship. We believe that without being overtly so, this makes our methodology naturally, and inherently sustainable, without regard to trends, or public convention.
