Founded in 2014, B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio was established in Beijing by Japanese architects Yoko Fujii and Shuhei Aoyama. It is an international architecture studio full of youthful vitality oriented towardarchitecture and architectural interior design. B.L.U.E. is the abbreviation of Beijing Laboratory for Urban Environment, and is also the core design philosophy of the studio. Focusing on the intense collisionof rich history and vanward thought of Beijing, B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio is working on the design practices of architecture, interior design, product, and art to realize the research on urban physics, society, culture and environment, and seek to create a design platform that truly connects the urban environments.

B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio has a wide range of project practices, ranging from small buildings, new type retail spaces, micro-renovation of the old city, urban renewal, and experimental studies of lifestyles. The current projects are located both at home and abroad, in the core areas of Beijing, Shanghai, Kyoto, Shanxi, Shandong, Yunnan and so on. Among them, the L-shaped house at Dengshikou Hutong in Dongcheng District, Beijing was widely favored by many professional medias as soon as it was published. The UMASSIF/WITH Bakery of Huamao center in Beijing CBD fully suffered the high praise because of its unique design style. In Kyoto, Japan, the office transformed a century-old house from Gojo Krasuma into a museum-style guest house. In the Qing Dynasty, the 2,500-square-meter Suzhou ancient house was remodeled and transformed into a shared new urban space. A new idea for the future shared community life—400 boxes. A guest house named is adjacent to the Lu Xun Museum, continue the conception of contemporary life "home" from Shuhei Aoyama, and challenges the boundary between cities and spaces to provide more opportunities of interacting for people.
