Inspiration from Nature and Tradition



We aim at the blending of architecture and nature, where you find a rich and firm link between the building and the ¡®place¡¯ it stands. To achieve this goal, we use natural materials that are locally available in each ¡®place¡¯, such as wood, stone or paper, and try to retrieve warmth and tenderness to the architecture. For further fusion between architectureand its surrounding environment, we attach great importance in our designing to the unity between landscape and architecture, and we always bear in mind that their harmony would resonate throughout the building¡¯s details, interior, furniture and accesssories. I am convinced that only such close relations between the ¡®place¡¯ and the building can create an architecture that its residens or users love and feel comfortable with.
