ARCHITECTURAL GRADUATE

Completing his Master in Architecture in 2021 and his Bachelor of Architectural Design in 2017 from the University of Queensland, Ivan remains active in both practice and academia. His cross-cultural heritage and upbringing informs the way he approaches architecture and design.

Practising overseas prior to joining KO&Co Architecture where he worked on various high-profile casino and integrated resort developments, Ivan brings his experience of project coordination and keen eye for interior design.

At KO&Co Architecture, Ivan is involved with a range of projects from small commercial tenancy fitouts to multi-residential projects. He values the social aspects of architecture; exploring the potential of the built environment as rich repositories of choreographies and stories of spaces and places.
