Koichi Takada discusses the “renaissance of new architecture in Sydney” as mixed-use symbolises the city of tomorrow
Issue 65, June 2016
Mixed-use symbolises the city of tomorrow and architect KOICHI TAKADA’s designs presage a vertical village approach to CBD living that is already taking root in Sydney.
As I write, Westfield Corporation has announced it will build residential apartments above its new shopping malls in the US – a clear indication that mixed-use is where it’s at. As one architect said to me recently: “There is no more single-purpose spec office being done – it is all mixed-use.”
Mixed-use – the co-location of residential, commercial, retail, hospitality and more or less any amenity… Read more
COLLECT Magazine captures Koichi Takada in conversation
Japanese-born, and educated both in New York and in London where he worked under Rem Koolhaas, the Australian-based interior architect Koichi Takada takes nature as his inspiration, and to infinitely modern effect.
The word “luxury”, to Koichi Takada, means something far from the idea of artificial, over-stylised and polished but rather the opposite: let the rawness of nature come forth to engage the senses in a richer sort of beauty that is expressed through colour, texture and quality.

More emphasis is given to the efficiency of mass production and consumerism, looking towards quantity as opposed to the uniqueness and quality of craftsmanship.… Read more

“With tall buildings, people have the ambition to go higher and higher, but going vertical brings with it a lot of issues. The tall scale might work in the context of the city, but for humans, it can just feel too tall. We want to humanise tall buildings, to celebrate the pedestrian level and consider how people experience it.” Koichi Takada
The distinctive loop shape of the Infinity by Crown Group building is a result of a considered approach from Koichi… Read more
