Tato Architects was founded by Yo Shimada in 1997, after he graduated from Kyoto City University of Art, where he carried out a number of design and build architecture projects as a student. Based in Shimada’s home town of Kobe, the practice undertakes project work throughout various locations in Japan.The ideology of the practice is to formulate positive outcomes through understanding the subtle conditions and constraints of everyday life, which exist within notions of place, culture and the ongoing histories of architecture.
Phorm architecture + design seeks to create new architecture with local identities. It is a Brisbane-based practice with 15 years specialising in residential projects; half of their projects are located within the inner city suburbs, the complement are scattered throughout regional Queensland’s diverse terrains and townships and along its coastline.
Phorm seeks to craft specific projects that ‘inherently belong to’ or celebrate place. Choreographing and nurturing the relationships between occupants and landscape or cityscape.
