Baum is an architectural design practice founded in 2014 based in Fukui, Japan. Daisuke Kishina, president and chief architect, leads the team in the design and realization of various projects. From architectural design to interior design of houses, shops, offices, industries, installation and product design. BAUM believes that inspiration from art, history and culture bears the definition of impactful space. Architecture is not just visual beauty, it is supposed to tell a unique story about the specificity of each site. Rather than complying with a predefined stylistic register, BAUM forges its own language through the strategic usage of volumes and light respecting the heritage. The minimalistic aesthetic of his projects aims to underline the spirit of Japan.
