The beautiful temple gardens of Kyoto played an integral role in Yoko’s journey to begin her studio in 2016. From a young age, Yoko was connected to the sensory details of day-to-day life in the ancient capital of Kyoto. She noticed how the subtle shadows of bamboo, incense filling the temple gardens and soft sunlight playing through leaves of the ‘Butterfly’ trees all had a profound effect on one’s wellbeing.

An early career in the competitive world of business and finance led Yoko to travel extensively across Asia, North America and Europe, before she settled in London in 2010. After spending countless days and nights in soulless airport lounges and bland hotel rooms, Yoko was led back to her fond memories of peaceful spaces and healing architecture. These moments led her to combine her polarising experiences through interior design.

Today, the London-based studio offers a full architecture and design service for private and commercial clients. Every space that she touches is crafted to bring balance and harmony to its dwellers.




We begin our journey together by asking lots of questions. By listening, we are able to uncover your essentials, priorities and ultimate goals. Next, we distil and translate your requirements into a visual brief using numerous images.


Once we’ve reached agreement on the design direction, we define and craft a design plan for each space. Our team then get to work. This includes the coordination of all materials, suppliers and contractors. Our final step is to amaze you with our completed work so that you can celebrate and find solace in your new home.
