Raffaello’s practice redefines and reimagines materials, including those that would be otherwise be overlooked. The design process is based in material experimentation, which influences the design practice at all scales, from small pavilions to large-scale developments. Previous projects have employed plastic bales, rusted steel sheeting, old roof tiles and quarry stone.
Raffaello received two NSW Architecture Awards and was shortlisted for the International Dezeen Emerging architect award in 2018. He has been featured as an emerging architect in leading architectural publications Casabella and Architecture Review. Raffaello completed his Masters of Architecture at the University of Sydney in 2011.
Raffaello works with a talented team including Paula Font Ruiz, Jeffrey Blewett and Callum Coombe. Current projects include a school redevelopment, a childcare addition, an office conversion and several private residences.
