  • Overall, I found the japanese-architects.com platform to be of high quality and japanese-architects.com staff to be polite, engaging and practical. japanese-architects.com has become an indispensable part of my house building process.

    Without their support, it would have been exceedingly difficult to find an architect and to manage the complex process of purchasing the land, designing a new home and managing the construction process.

- 2 ways - to design your global project

your architect can...

1. Design remotely from Japan

Architects designing remotely from Japan
You can ask the architect in Japan to do the design process on a remote basis from Japan. You will be able to have frequent communications with the architect via video calls and tell him/her what you wish.

To ensure the highest quality of your overseas project, we can also arrange your desired Japanese architect to meet the local builder and contractor at the right time of construction phases as necessary.

2. Fully supervise on site

Architects supporting locally on site
If you want your architect to manage your project end-to-end, we can connect you to the right architect from the range of Japanese firms in our platform who also has a capability to manage on-site supervision.

You will be able to have the same architect supervise the entire process and make sure your building will be built precisely as designed.
