As a Director of Woods Bagot’s Sydney studio, Domenic is a leading force in the design AND realisation of a diverse range of projects, varying in both scale and function. It is Domenic’s ability to move seamlessly between the disciplines of architecture and interior design which allows him to communicate with clients, delivering crafted projects with outstanding workmanship and attention to detail. His design portfolio illustrates the interplays of these two disciplines, ranging from typology-pushing mixed-use commercial and civic architectural developments, through to small scale residential and hospitality destinations with curated interiors. Decorated with numerous accolades, Domenic’s career includes awards and honours spanning local and international competitions and press. As a recipient of the Harry Seidler Award for Commercial Architecture and the prestigious Lloyd Reece Medal for Outstanding Urban Design in 2009 for ivy: a vibrant, mixed use destination in Sydney’s CBD, Domenic continues to cultivate his portfolio of globally recognised architecture. In 2011, Domenic won World Architecture Festival (WAF) House of the Year for the design of his own Small House: a prototypical home on a 42sqm site in Sydney’s inner-city suburb of Surry Hills. More recently, Domenic’s design for Paramount by The Office Space took out the competitive Office category at the 2016 World Festival of Interiors. Current projects include Wynyard Walk: a nine-metre wide pedestrian tunnel in the heart of Sydney and a landmark 55-storey tower at 8 Phillip St, Parramatta. Domenic’s design approach blends his conceptual vision with outstanding craftsmanship and attention to detail. His cross-disciplinary methodology ensures seamless integration of architecture and interiors via innovative design solutions that create genuine experiences that are both gestural and timeless.
