Established in October 2006, Takenouchi Webb is a partnership between British architect Marc Webb and Japanese interior designer Naoko Takenouchi. Marc previously worked as an architect in London and Naoko as a restaurant designer in Tokyo. They began their practice together after working in Singapore for several years.

Takenouchi Webb is an integrated design firm that develops architectural and interior environments specialising in restaurant, hotel and bar projects. The studio believes in a holistic approach to design, developing the architecture, interior and furniture for each project. The design approach of Takenouchi Webb is a carefully considered combination of materials, detailing and precision combined with practical problem solving unique to each project.

At Takenouchi Webb we understand that to create a successfully integrated project with a good balance of design and function takes time and passion, which is why we are always fully committed to each of the projects in our office no matter what the size.
