After a decade and a half as an associate designer with some of the most prestigious design and architectural studios in Australia and Asia, creative director Albano Daminato established Studio Daminato in 2001. A multi-disciplinary firm that specializes in the built environment, Studio Daminato accepts commissions to design a range of private residential, commercial, corporate, theatre, retail and hospitality projects. Geographically, our international projects and client base have come to us from Singapore, Switzerland, Indonesia, Thailand and India. Whilst a rigorous architectural approach to space planning, form making and detailing is evident in all of Studio Daminato’s work, there is also a constant exploration of design language together with a varied use of project-specific concepts, materials and colour palettes. Along with this is our belief in the longevity of well-conceived design solutions. The Studio’s holistic approach to design also means that a project is fully managed from the overall design concept stage through to the detailing and design of bespoke furniture, light fittings, textiles and objects. For that reason, we are able to form a close working relationship with every one of our clients. The results are meticulously crafted environments and products that are unique to each client and location.
