Takashi Okuno & Associates

From Ehime Prefecture, Japan. Studied architectural design under Boo-Woong Kim in Tokyo (DESIGN OFFICE opposition). Back in Ehime, undertook the design of residential homes, a sushi restaurant, a hospital, and a Japanese inn at Atelier A&A. Touched by the beauty of Sukiya style architecture (a type of tea house that embraces the beauty of rustic simplicity), began learning the art of tea ceremony. Established Takashi Okuno & Associates in February 2012. Focuses activities in Shikoku, known as Japan’s Buddhist holy land, and specializes in wooden architecture with a calm atmosphere called Gendai Wafū (Modern Japanese-style Architecture). Aside from professional work, continues to travel the world sketching measured drawings of guestrooms.
