About Takashi Niwa : Takashi Niwa is a Japanese architect who established offices in Vietnam in 2018 and Japan in 2020. By the design approach of “Visualize the values”, Niwa’s firm designs from small furniture to big symbols, from interior to urban planning and from private space to public space.

The aim of the approach is to create the best environment and culture to bring more meaning for the users, clients and the society. It will reflect on our actual design and how we consider the best with supporting culture for the end users.

Beside designing many hospitality designs such as restaurants and hotels, Niwa and the team won an international competition of Saigon footbridge in 2021. The team experiences are now expanding to master planning of South-east Asia.

Niwa is Japanese but his team is international. Especially many Vietnamese architects, who are very talented and their strong points are IT skills and sense of form. In this team, we are challenging ourselves to develop skills to create our own culture, to realize “The best environment and culture” for ourselves, for buildings and for society.
STATEMENT OF ART:
We are very interested in the development of our design through a theme, "Visualize the Values". We are architect but we design from small to large such as furniture to bridge which people has a joy to use. Each project has a different background, and we cultivate each value to express and deliver to users of our design.

Design doesn’t have correct answers. Design is developed by designers with a good understanding of the backgrounds and function. Designers can make a sense of collaboration with time, site, client and designer. We are aiming to deliver more meaningful results for future age through designs.
