Purpose-led lifestyle brand, Koskela has launched a new concept space and brand headquarters at the newly reimagined and award-winning, Sub Base Platypus, a former submarine base in North Sydney.

The space showcases the best in Australian design and offers opportunities for visitors to book in-store consultations and see exhibitions by leading First Nations artists from across the country.

“We are excited to open this curated space to provide a new experience for our customers. The role of the store has changed since Covid and we think our new location reflects the type of experience customers are looking for,” Koskela co-founder, Sasha Titchkosky said.

“We want to connect and make memories with our visitors, bringing true connection and meaning to the pieces that they own. At a pinnacle growth moment for the brand, we believe the destination store will only strengthen our relationships and diversify the brand’s reach further.”

Relocating from its Rosebery headquarters, the new dual level, 500 square metre Koskela store features solid Australian timbers and Sydney Sandstone, both key features of the site and the surrounding area.

“Looking for a new space we focused on finding somewhere that captured the essence of Sydney and naturally the harbour was always front and centre. We are thrilled to have found a new home in this remarkable location – steeped in history and boasting beautiful waterside views,” Titchkosky added.
