A Los Angeles native, Arthur Takioto joins SBLA with several years of experience working on high-end residential landscape design. With a unique background in both architecture and landscape architecture, his appreciation for the built environment translates into the creation of thoughtful spaces. He is interested in how design can shape our world at all scales, from intimate private gardens to larger civic spaces that promote community and inclusiveness. His interests also extend to designing and fabricating art installations, one of which was awarded in a design competition for a temporary installation.
Arthur graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture. When he’s not out biking and exploring the outdoors, you can find him in the studio managing projects at all phases, from conceptual design through construction. He is interested in uncovering the potential of each site by investigating its past and bringing awareness to the historical and cultural context of each place.
