“We were very happy with the finished design that took it from paper to reality”
How did we find them
After visiting and going to more than 5 house designers we decided upon Panda Yamamoto due to their flexibility and they were willing to design multiple drawings for the land that we were wanting to get but fell through last minute. I think they did about 3 different designs for land that we almost purchased without any commitment. This shows that they will work with you to give you your dream design
The planning and design stage
We had an excellent house designer Beppu-san who was very patient and very good listener. He took a lot of our input spanning many months till late at night after our normal workday. No change was dismissed, his advice and design ideas were first class. He was also a good mediator when we had conflicting ideas. We must have changed big and small parts to the design more than 100 times all without any fuss or complaints, always advising if not feasible and why. There was nothing like a limit like some other designers put into the contract. Yamamoto-SA was also always at hand to add his professional opinion when needed at any time
Turning the design into reality
Once the design was finalized, it was onto the building stage and even at this stage within reason we could still change our design slightly should we have last minute bright ideas
We were give the opportunity to visit the site on numerous points of the building stage. Pictures and drawings were provided at every meeting when we met at their offices to discuss progress.
We were free to visit the site also at our convenience to see it progress and check on materials, talk to the people on site without any hesitation. Everyone was very cordial and accommodating.
The Handover was on plan, on target and on our agreed budget. We were very happy with the finished design that took it from paper to reality
