About Endo Architectural Atelier

Endo Architectural Atelier is a design office headed by Kenichiro Endo, an architect hailing from Otaru City in Hokkaido.
From days of old, human beings have built buildings and cities in their quest to actualize all sorts of different spaces, seeking to create a Natural Life Style.
Architecture started from the desire for safety in the form of shelters and has evolved into its current incarnation along a journey aiming for ever more comfortable environments. Planning in architecture requires the consideration of an array of elements. And these elements change dramatically depending on the people who will live in or use the building.
- Easy to use and streamlined, including energy usage
- High quality spaces highlighting the unique qualities of Japanese culture
- A comfortable and form fitting sense of scale and spatial composition
- A relaxing environment as your lifestyle base
- We create ideal and unique structures valuing the above elements and with full consideration given to the people we have met in various situations as well as the relationship to and power of the building site.
By pursuing perfection with the above elements in the forefront of our minds, we infuse each location with meaning and construct strong spaces and buildings that bring locations and people together.
There are many pathways to ideas for creating a unique and high quality space that resonates with all of the five senses, a "Live Space" that fully takes into consideration the strengths of the building site environment.
In addition to creating space designs, Endo Architectural Atelier also organizes the points requisite to each specific building, soars above the physical solutions to those points into the realm of creative production, and offers planning that is comprehensively balanced.
We offer ideal proposals within an optimal cost balance from the customer viewpoint and build designs based on those proposals.
