Akira Yamanaka Architects (AYA) is a London-based architectural design studio founded by Akira Yamanaka, a RIBA chartered architect and a Certified Passive House Designer. Akira has extensive experience, especially in the fields of sustainable residential, educational, performing arts and community buildings.
The Tokyo-born architect graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London in 1997, and honed his expertise working with leading architectural practices in the UK for 17 years before establishing his eponymous practice.

Sustainable architectural design is central to the practice’s philosophy, as well as their long-held interest in the integration of the emergent digital technologies into both the design process and the urban design itself to create a human environment for a better future.
