TAKATINA

is a NY-based multi-disciplinary design consultancy for built environments and products led by Takaaki and Christina Kawabata. Since 2003, we have completed projects around the country and the world, reimagining the old and creating exquisite new designs.

It is our mutually held belief that design has the potential to enhance the quiet pleasures of life. With every built gesture we strive to materialize that aspiration.

Guided by our client and the site program, rather than by fashion or trends, our goal is to formulate a simple, unique solution each time.

How does the passage of daylight shape the space?

How do people move through it?

How do our precisely selected materials look and feel as they are repeatedly used?

We admire timeless deign with pure and tactile materials. We focus on function, quality and detail. Above all, we want each of our creations to last, and be loved, whether you’re entering for the first time, or waking up there every day.
