The Flow of Project Plan

“Atmosphere design” refers to the design of spatial ambience. By researching the requirements of our clients and regional characteristics, we create dream-inspiring main concepts. With these concepts, we propose facilities and products that satisfy a variety of functions, and then render them handsomely as designs. Designing space in which to spend time comfortably by using form and mechanism. . . This is the essence of atmosphere design.

After conducting surveys and researching the investment consequences of the merchantability and marketability of the facilities and products requested by our clients, we propose marketable products that offer maximum effects at modest cost. ・Project research and analysis
