Yamashita Sekkei

Yamashita Sekkei architecture studio was founded in 1928 and since then it has not stopped growing until it has a scale of international repercussion in its projects.

Their goal as professionals is to make high-quality proposals and bring them to fruition. Drawing on long years of experience and technological excellence, they are helping to make the world a better place by proposing and implementing exceptional design solutions.

Throughout their long history as design professionals, they have continued to break new ground in architecture, urban development, and the environment, creating numerous projects in Japan and many other parts of the world. "Loyalty to our customers" is the corporate motto that underlies its code of conduct. Through planning and architectural and urban design, they offer four services that improve society.

They put together a project team to get the job done. The team consists of experts in architectural design, structural planning, mechanical and electrical equipment design, cost design, landscape design, and interior design. They seek the realization of high-quality buildings that are not only superficial forms but are also economically sound, ecological, functional, comfortable, and safe. In addition to their in-house architects and engineers, to meet clients' needs, they form the optimal team for project characteristics through collaboration with designers and consultants from around the world.
