Architect Junichi Nakagawa gained extensive experience both in the field and office. We have seen some of the well-executed projects when he was still working for a small “komuten” (a general contracting company) in Tokyo. Less than a year ago, in the midst of the economy crisis, Nakagawa left the company and set up Bariquant, an architecture/real estate office in Tokyo. Naturally, under tight budget and timeframe constraints, he became both the designer and contractor to turn an abandoned 368 square foot former barber shop into his new firm, appropriately named after the first hair clippers brought to Japan by a French manufacturer (Barriquand et Marre). We love what Nakagwa did for his new office and wish his firm a lot of success!
