WE ARE TORU AND CRISTINA

Directors and Co-founders of atelier EURA

After leaving our hometowns in Japan and Spain to move to London around the turn of Millennium, our paths converged in 2004 at an Architectural Studio where we both became Associates.

Bringing together the skills we acquired in commercial practice with our own personal projects and passions and after years designing and leading urban scale projects from conception through to completion, in the context of commercial practice, we decided it was time to set up our own studio and work closely with clients to deliver their vision.

Atelier EURA, from Eurasia, provides us with the framework to redefine the image and role of the architect. We can find solutions to your architectural challenges but also interior design and graphic ones.

Our clients tell us that we are good at listening and at explaining, in plain English, what we are trying to achieve, why and what the space will feel like.  They also tell us that the value we bring to each project goes beyond the traditional role of the architect and this is because we care.

AT ATELIER EURA

We believe in the power that architecture and design have to change the world.

We are driven by the desire to make our clients’ dreams a reality and we can do so by understanding what their needs and expectations are. We want you to tell us what the vision for your home and/or business would involve and how you will know it has been achieved.

We enjoy getting to know people and businesses, finding out what drives them and makes them happy and to develop design responses which turn their vision into a reality using our skills and experience in Architecture, Interiors and Graphics.

 

Since we first started our studio, we have helped clients develop their business identify and support the growth of their business through good design, we have worked closely with private clients helping them create homes which fit their family’s needs. and we have found ways to use temporary architecture to ​support small businesses. 

Our experience in Europe and Asia provides us with a broad sense of design awareness and having worked with clients based outside the United Kingdom makes us your ideal London designers wherever you are in the world.
