Project Management

PAE was asked by L'ORÉAL to work
with their design team for their flagship
store project in one of the most
fashionable area in Tokyo.

Our scope of work includes project management and design as a local architect, including structural design. The design was a collaboration with Shu Uemura design team.

Since this is a renovation project from
a steel-framed curtain wall building, the project has many architecturally challenging aspects, including removal of most parts of the 2nd-floor slab and its steel beams, which required a complex structural design. In addition to the regular building permit application, PAE supported the client to get certified with LEED Gold, the global environmental certificate, which requires high-level MEP design skill and knowledge.
