Shinjuku Miyabi Residence

There were severe restrictions on various laws, and it was difficult to realize the desired number of customers and the desired number of customers, assuming that the land is small.
Since Himematsu is an architect who is strong in designing hotels, I immediately contacted the Himematsu Architecture by telephone.
He kindly agreed to go see the site immediately, and kindly consulted us in various ways.
We are grateful for the fact that we have made various meetings and completed a meaningful building that surpasses what we initially imagined. In addition, the design supervision was also solid, and Himematsu performed it based on the budget.

​Design and Construction System for Hotels

​Hotel Design and Construction System

The diagram above shows the system for designing and constructing a hotel.

The client should request the design from Himematsu Architecture first, and then the construction company.

The design supervision contract and the construction contract are separate, but since Himematsu Architecture and the construction company will work together as a team to complete the work until the end, the burden on the client does not increase.

The work flow is roughly divided and proceed in the order of 1. design 2. construction .

First of all, it will start from, please contact Himematsu Architecture.

We answer free questions for simple questions that do not require an investigation.


We will select a construction company when the design is completed.

A local construction company will be selected close to the site.

We undertake the design, but when construction begins, we supervise the construction and the construction company will perform the construction.

Since Himematsu Architecture checks construction, you can reach the completion of the building with peace of mind.

An accurate construction cost will be determined when we make detailed drawings and the construction company estimates the construction cost based on the drawings.

Even we create rough drawings at the beginning, please understand that at that point we can answer the approximate construction cost but we can not submit the construction cost accurately.

​In first planning, we will tell you a rough estimate of the construction cost, and after your approval, we will proceed to next detailed designing.

The detail flow of the design and construction for hotels is here please visit.
