For 13 years we were based in Tamatsukuri, in Chuo Ward, Osaka.
Then, in September 2009, we made a big move to a new place
we’d built in Asahi Ward.
It’s a really comfortable space with lots of greenery and it brings together TRUCK, the AREA2 shop, our workshop, Atelier Shirokumasha and Bird.
Bird is something we’d thought of having ever since we started TRUCK—a café where our customers can kick back and relax.
The idea was to create a place where people could enjoy spending time among tall trees.
After acquiring the land, we spent two and a half years planning and building before finally opening up for business.
We desigined and built everything ourselves, the buildings,
the gardens, and the brick wall surrounding them.
