STUDIO FUTAGAWA ARCHITECTS

The focus of my design concept is always starting from how to make people's lives happier, and secondly how the environment and the building relate to each other. My hope is that neighborhoods and people's daily lives will become more positive  because of my designs.

Toru Futagawa

First-class registered architect

I am based in Japan since 2009, specializing in Japanese design with multicultural influences. My 2 years of work in Australia and 6 years in Italy have strongly influenced my design aesthetic as an architect. Traveling to many countries has inspired my design, helped me to communicate on an international level and appreciate different world views.

This experience established my work habit of listening to my clients first and collaborating together before the design phase begins. I believe this way of "Listening to all opinion" brings the best design.
