Shigeru Kuwahara Architects (SKA) established by Shigeru Kuwahara 2003 in Kawasaki JAPAN neighboring city of Tokyo, is a multi-disciplinary design practice active in the design of architecture, interiors, furniture, product, and so on..
SKA's work with clients is based on a mutual need to make design a key element in solving problems and in projecting an image. SKA treats each commission as an experiment that attempts to redirect expectations toward new and even better forms of functional and aesthetic performance.SKA sees each project as a collaboration with discerning clients, consultants, and capable builders / fabricators. From the outset of each project, our ambitions always are to employ advanced techniques of design and building toward functional yet aesthetically original architecture. The design process begins with exhaustive meetings concerning client demands, site investigation, and cost analysis as a way to ground the project in real terms from the start. These pragmatic concerns create a base that supports our relentless search for new ideas in architecture.SKA explores new ways to integrate an organizing idea with the programmatic and functional essence of a building. Rather than imposing a style upon different sites and climate, or pursued irrespective of program, the unique character of a program and a site becomes the starting point for an architectural idea.
