PHILOSOPHY

KA sees its clients as “creative partners,” not a contractor-contractee relationship. We firmly commit ourselves to achieve clients’ goal together through architectural design.

Our ideal design is a combination of particularity and universality, which cultivates a new design trend and attracts people worldwide. That is to say; our solution to specific clients solves not only their specific problems but also ubiquitous issues in the world.

We use an approach which is open to discoveries: exploring all the possible solutions to extract the best solution to each project, without falling into formalism or common styles.

KAMIYA ARCHITECTS is a group of enthusiastic people who hope to make the clients feel excited in every single meeting and presentation throughout both the entire design process and architecture as an outcome.
