At the core of the practice is an emphasis on creativity in design and diligence in process. Our diverse range of projects demonstrates an ability to adapt to client needs and to develop a working dialogue that informs the design process.
Creativity is the lifeblood of the practice: Koichi Takada Architects seeks to develop unique and innovative designs that draw inspiration from the processes of nature, as well as from contemporary urban life.
This creative design process is at the centre of everything we do at Koichi Takada Architects We consistently seek to push the boundaries of what defines architecture and explore new ways of marrying form to function. Our past experience has demonstrated that innovative, yet timeless designs can be delivered within budgetary and time constraints.
Koichi Takada Architects aims to explore the boundaries of the perception of architecture. How can architecture become invisible? When does architecture best embody the qualities and virtues of nature? With a self-effacing hand, Koichi Takada has demonstrated through his past projects how architecture based on an understanding of nature and the elements can expose nature to itself. The elements become the shapers and the protagonists of the built form, not the architecture itself.
Koichi Takada Architect's approach to architecture is also an embodiment of a shift in lifestyle paradigm. Based on an understanding of the life cycle of the spaces and the ever-changing use of space through time, Koichi Takada Architect's architecture is designed to stand the test of time and to evolve with time. In the face of a changing industry, Koichi Takada Architect's architecture highlights environmental initiatives and credentials that are becoming increasingly critical to the sustainability of the projects we undertake. Design for now. Design for later. Design with nature.
Koichi Takada Architect’s architecture showcases an intimate relationship between form and function. The design is purified to its essence and the architectural form speaks directly to the function of spaces in a programmatic sense. Simple lines and expressive materials form the palette for the interiors. With environmental design at the forefront of each design, Koichi Takada Architects seeks to engage in a dialogue between architectural form and context, an unrelenting attempt to understand how simple natural processes can inform architectural form.
