JAPAN - Recently, Merlino Design Partnership has completed Charming Square Shirogane in Tokyo, Japan. The complex contains a 10 story Retirement Community in the Shirogane section of Tokyo. This joint venture was between a Tokyo based architecture firm and a U.S. based design team, consisting of Merlino Design Partnership and KDA Architects. They had expressed a desire for the building design to have a fusion of Eastern and Western design principles. In our standard Post Occupancy Review, they write "We are happy to report that the project has been a success and continues to prosper and enrich the lives of its residents.”
