Niko is a Tokyo based architecture firm founded by Taketo Nishikubo (b. 1973) in December 2001. Prior to establishing Niko, Nishikubo worked for Atelier Zo, a renowned firm since the early ’70s. In 2004 Nishikubo’s firm was joined by Yumiko Hara, a former colleague at Atelier Zo and now his partner in life.
Niko’s forte is designing a ‘micro’ house on a small irregular-shaped lot for a client with unique taste and needs.
