ABD Architecture LLC provides Master Planning for land development projects in Japan, with a focus on ski resorts, like Niseko and Furano.
We have specialized in land developments projects, thanks to our many due diligence works and volume studies, as well as our involvement in four land development projects with onsen and underground power.
As licensed civil engineer and architect, we are uniquely placed to bridge the engineering of land developments (underground power, storm ponds, well developments, drainage…) to the aesthetic needs of building views, privacy, landscaping and land’ best use.
We use drone mapping, Building Information Modeling software and Rendering software for accurate and stunning visuals.
Since 2007, we have managed more than a dozen projects with development approvals and have extended knowledge developments’ engineering, regulation and approvals.
In addition to the master plan’s design, we can provide architectural design for the buildings.
We have an extensive experience with onsen developments, from the drilling works, to land developments with onsen water supplied to each plot, through the design inside buildings. We collaborate with mechanical and electrical engineers to develop the best solution.
We believe that in order to make the best of a land, a proper site study, including location of trees and views must be conducted. That’s why we use drones whenever possible (for which we have a pilot licenses and an approval for throughout Japan), as well as real-time 3D visualization software.
“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.”
“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.”
“Franck’s local knowledge of both building and land development regulations proved critical in negotiating with local authorities in resolving several issues and hurdles which otherwise would have been detrimental to our project. I would recommend Franck to manage large mixed-used projects in Niseko.”
Before embarking on your project, check the conditions of your site and identify potential risks and issues.
For the best use of your land, make sure to drill the necessary wells early in your project.
