Tsushima design studio (TDS) is an architectural office based in Tokyo, Japan. Our studio is made up of a diversed and international team with different cultures, languages and architectural training.
At TDS, our design philosophy is to allow the context to inform our design, which strives to create more memorable and enchanting spaces through trans-formative architecture. We believe in creating "TANGIBLE SPACES" through thoughtful transformation of the site, architectural landscape and the surrounding environment. In all our projects, we are committed to creating architecture which is sensitive to its context beyond the lifetime of the building. Natural environment, regional context, site conditions, programmatic functions as well as local culture and available technology were all carefully studied, understood and integrated into each project. This enabled us to achieve an overall clarity in the architectural expression of form, space, structure and material in all our works.
We believe the creation of "TANGIBLE SPACES" requires deep understanding of the correlation between the past, present and future vision of each individual project site. At TDS, we create architecture which helps to define the future of a "PLACE", by designing our architecture to achieve "TANGIBLE SPACES".
