Hitomi joined the practice in 2018, having begun her career in France where she developed large-scale urban designs. With a primary focus on the public realm, her analysis and graphic visualisations transform complex situations into legible ones, resulting in clear and precise design solutions.
Understanding the positive impact of quality public spaces, Hitomi believes in creating places where people love to live.
Hitomi studied architecture in both Japan and France and brings to her work points of view from different cultures. She has a particular sensitivity to how nature and light change throughout the seasons.
Her interest in placemaking is used in her role as the Vice-President of RAD Paris. This non-profit organisation explores the cultures of Tokyo, Paris and other world cities through exhibitions and workshops.
Hitomi loves swing dancing, accompanied by good wine and her trumpet.
