Chief Operations Officer (COO) & Chief Consultant
LEED AP (BD+C, ND).
A Tokyo native Noriko Yasuhara studied Physics at Tokyo Institute of Technology. While being a student she already displayed a deep interest in garden design and flower arrangement for commercial spaces. During 8 years of child-rearing, she noticed changes in urban environment, especially the decline of green spaces and lack of playground parks, and realized the negative impacts it had on children and younger generations. This motivated Noriko to take Landscape Design Course at Kyoto University of Art and Design, which she successfully completed in 2007.
Now Noriko is Chief Consultant at Woonerf and oversees multiple LEED certification projects. She hopes that her work contributes to sustainable urban development and creation of healthy environment for next generations.
