Yosuke NagumoProject Architect
Yosuke joined Hopkins in 2001 after working nine years for Takenaka Corporation in Japan, and became a Project Architect in 2005. He studied at Nihon University and the Architectural Association Design Research Laboratory, and is a registered Architect in Japan and the UK. He is an APEC Architect, and a member of the Architectural Institute of Japan and the Architectural Association.
Yosuke was the Project Architect for the 195m tall Shin-Marunouchi Building in Tokyo. His other projects include the Provincial Headquarters in Pisa, Offshore Residences in Dubai, and the winning competition scheme for Dubai Gate Village. He also has experience in regeneration and masterplanning projects, including the Nottingham Eastside Masterplan and Chester Northgate Development. More recently, he worked on Hackney Service Centre, which won a RIBA Award and Brent Civic Centre, which achieved a BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating.
Yosuke has been involved in many of Hopkins’ more technically challenging projects, with a focus on façade design. At Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital East Wing Refurbishment, Yosuke was Project Architect for the new curtain-walling, helping to develop the tie-backs into the existing structure. At 100 Liverpool Street, Yosuke developed the details of the new curved façade, coordinated the new cores with the existing floor slabs, and redesigned the building systems.
