Referencing both its pine tree namesake and the local surf culture, Koichi Takada Architect’s Norfolk is a nine-level apartment on the Burleigh Heads waterfront.
Beyond its beautifying powers, Koichi Takada believes architecture has a responsibility to perform – with consciousness and ambitiously so. His recent Urban Forest and Sunflower House projects are an open invitation for architects to align with these goals, and exceed them too.
On the 4th episode of Dialling In With Habitus we speak to Koichi Takada, a Sydney-based globally-recognised architect, about the opportunities within architecture presented to us by way of the pandemic.
Koichi Takada Architects is known for luxury high-rise apartments, rich materiality and expensive finishes. But we find there is much, much more substance to this story than just good looks.

This waterfront retreat designed by iconic Australian-Japanese architect Koichi Takada is the epitome of an Australian dream home, adorned with a private beach, garden and open-plan living.
