Devoting Ourselves Wholeheartedly to Designing Comfortable Buildings

Azusa Architects Office, our predecessor, was founded in 1946 by Fuminaga Kiyota. Mr. Kiyota firmly believed that, in order to properly meet the requirements of modern architecture, architects should form an organization capable of fulfilling its responsibility as a corporate citizen in a more effective and sustained manner. Guided by this belief, Azusa was established as a corporate architectural firm, a very unique form at the time. For more than 70 years since then, we have continued to take on new challenges, staying true to our origin.

We have been guided, supported, and encouraged by our clients and many other stakeholders, without whom we would not be what we are today. Despite having led the firm in a difficult business environment, Mr. Kiyota never lost sight of the importance of paying affectionate attention to people and society as a whole. This mindset has been passed down to us in the form of our corporate principle of “simplicity and grace.”

Today, we dedicate ourselves to creating the types of buildings that help people do business all over the world, enable athletes to perform to the best of their ability and inspire people, bring a sense of healing and hope to the sick, ensure safety and security in everyday life, nurture creativity and inspiration, make children smile and be happy, and safeguard people’s happiness from a distance.
We will continue to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to designing comfortable buildings that touch people’s hearts, both in Japan and around the world.
