Health care

Designing a Wide Variety of Spaces

We have participated in a wide range of projects, including domestic projects extending from comfortable facilities in which patients can live as if they were at home, to radiotherapy facilities that provide state-of-the-art care as well as overseas projects from public health centers supporting basic human needs, to highly advanced hospitals that enable patients to be treated without having to be transferred to an overseas hospital. To address these diverse needs, we strive to keep abreast of the latest knowledge and hone our technology.



Outstanding client satisfaction through effective communication

In the healthcare sector, where the nature of business is diverse and specific to each institution, it is important to accurately address the needs of each client. With the basic policy of designs based on communication, we provide facilities that highly satisfy the client by employing various visualization methods and reflecting the client’s priorities and wishes to the letter.


Safe and comfortable facilities easy to
use for everyone

As healthcare facilities are used by people in poor physical condition, they need to offer greater safety, for example by taking evidence-based measures to control the spread of infection, implementing universal design, and preparing for various disasters. Besides these fundamental safety functions, Azusa seeks to provide patients with comfort to give them vigor.


Flexible and sustainable facilities whose
value will not diminish with time

Healthcare facilities are highly susceptible to changes in health insurance systems and advances in medical technology. As such, it is crucial for them to be built in a way that makes renovation and extension easy. Azusa employs short-, medium-, and long-term measures that are conceivable at the design stage to create durable facilities.

Message from the Domain Head

Satoshi Yasukawa

Managing Executive Officer/Vice Representative (Architect Dep.) /head of the Healthcare Domain

In the UK, there is medical qualification called GP (General Practitioner). If you visit a registered GP at a clinic near your home to have your physical condition assessed, they can formulate a treatment plan based on an understanding of your various symptoms. If necessary, you may be referred to a specialist, who can provide you with a more advanced level of care. The existence of GPs is very reassuring to patients, who can entrust their medical affairs to them. In Japan they are also called family doctors or general physicians.

For professionals engaged in the fields of health and welfare, of course, constructing buildings is not their specialty, nor is it their job. With the significant changes in society and medical technology, I believe there is a need for designers who are like the GPs in the UK, with whom businesses can consult about their ideas and concerns, including new business development and precautions for COVID-19, and who can also help them find solutions to problems.

As experts in architecture for medical and welfare facilities, our goal in the Healthcare Domain is to be an organization that will consistently propose ideas and make contributions to society, by meeting expectations as a partner to businesses engaged in fields such as design, engineering, and consulting.
