ABD Architecture LLC was founded by an engineer turned architect on the premises of proposing a level of professional services that currently does not exist in Niseko or Furano, by applying innovative methods, best practices, linguistic skills, and smarter solutions.
We have a uniquely wide knowledge in the construction field, and thirst thereof: structural engineering, civil engineering, architecture, real estate and development regulations.
We are specialized in Project Management for international projects in Japan with an Architect Office License and qualifications in project management, structural engineering, civil engineering and real estate.
‘ABD’ expresses our design philosophy and stands for “Alien By Design”; we aim at defining unique designs appealing not only aesthetically, but also functionally and holistically, based on our international and engineering backgrounds, but also our quest for more sustainable projects.
“Franck is a diligent and serious designer and an expert who really understands Niseko. His design not only meets the high standards of private customization, but also shows the talent of the designer.
He is a trusted partner.”
“Much like anyone building their first home overseas we had questions upon questions and Franck was there to guide through the whole process, we couldn’t have been in better hands.”
“It was a pleasure working with Franck as the project manager of our new luxury residential project in Niseko. Franck has an in-depth knowledge of engineering; his experience of project management and his sense of architecture added a significant amount of value to our project.”
“Through the projects I have collaborated on with Franck, he has always been managing them from a fair position. As a result, he contributes to building a constructive relationship between local professionals like me and the client.
“Franck gave us the opportunity to design a unique and highly recognizable landscaping for a project in Niseko,
which has become our most famous project and led to many opportunities.
This would not have been possible without the client’s vision and Franck’s involvement.
For the benefit of future clients, we look forward to working with ABD Architecture.”
“Franck is an excellent contributing team member and highly knowledgeable professional through all project phases. We have successfully collaborated with Franck on a few projects throughout Hokkaido in the last 2 years. As an international design service, his multilingual communication and project coordination skills have greatly assisted us through the projects.”
“Franck’s incredible service also went way beyond the completion of the build. For years after, Franck was always there to assist us with any questions we had with the property and he even assisted us with further upgrades.
We highly recommend Franck when building in Hokkaido.”
ABD Architecture LLC has decided to do what we can to offset the impact of construction projects’ CO2 footprint by investing into forest. For this, we have selected Team Trees to plant trees for us.
The number of trees we plant is based on the following calculation:
In addition, we encourage our clients to contribute to planting trees on their project with landscaping, which we will match by ourselves with additional planting with Team Trees.
