Author Biography

Ietsugu Ohara was born in Kobe, Japan in 1974. After graduating from the Hyogo Technical School of Architecture, he established his architectural design office STILE in Osaka in 2002. He is known for his multi-sensory approach to design by using simple materials. He focuses on the direct sense from the construction itself and the spatial interrelation between the built environment and daily life. He believes that the environment can help to create harmony among people. Keeping in mind the basic events of life, his project highlights what is precious in this modern society so often consumed by materialism. He is an insightful and sensitive architect and embodies the Japanese philosophy through his creations. Ohara has won several design awards, including the Japanese Society of Commercial Space Designers Award, the Euro Shop / Japan Shop Excellence Award, and is the winner in the Asia Restaurant / Restaurant and Bar Design Awards (in London), 2012/13.
