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.
ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PLACES IN THE WORLD
Prague! I experienced my first white Christmas while I was in Europe at the end of 2015 and it was magical.
MY CHILDHOOD DREAM JOB
I wanted to be an artist or a classical musician.
IF I COULD SEE ANY MUSICIAN (PAST OR PRESENT) PERFORM LIVE, IT WOULD BE...
Ida Haendel or Mitsuko Uchida - two extraordinary talents and characters.
WHEN I'M NOT AT WORK, I'M NORMALLY...
You would also find me trying restaurants around the city.
IF I WERE A CAR, I WOULD BE...
I'd have to agree with Karen - a mini cooper. They're such smart looking cars!
IF I WASN'T AN ARCHITECT, I WOULD BE...
I would probably be a barista at my own café.
IF I WON A MILLION DOLLARS, I WOULD...
Help pay off my parent's mortgage and use the remaining to go for a coffee afterwards.
