Australian based, this practice has a humanist approach to architecture and design, not eager to win awards, but always to instill good design and humane architecture that develops affinities, creating sympathetic buildings that flow and appeal.
Working from the top floor of a converted Sydney warehouse, they are a team of architects and interior designers under the guidance of Luigi Rosselli and his three decades of international experience in Milano, Switzerland, New York and Sydney.
Renowned for their houses, residential architecture, adaptive re-use and heritage designs, the studio has worked on a very wide range of projects: from offices to factories, from libraries to wineries, from childcare to chapels.
Luigi Rosselli Architects is a carbon neutral practice applying sustainable building practices, as demonstrated by their expertise in rammed earth, air-conditioning-free spaces and energy efficiency.
The humanist and environmental principles apparent in their projects has attracted a variety of clients, from the top achievers of Australian society to the penniless artist, with a variety of locations and briefs, resulting in a continual renewal of design solutions.
Welcome to this showcase of their projects and please check back regularly as it will get better and better.
