ABOUT US

Building is in Robert DiManno’s blood. Weekends and school holidays were spent on construction sites with his bricklayer father, and Rob’s later training in architectural drawing and technical documentation underpin his current residential and commercial building practice.

From multi-unit developments to boutique restaurant builds, Rob’s portfolio traverses finely detailed modern designs and respectful highly crafted heritage projects. Regardless of style, it’s Rob’s hands-on approach and uncompromising commitment to quality finishes that set his work apart.

A dedicated husband with a passion for travel, Rob particularly enjoys visiting Italy. European architectural trends, especially where creative modern design offers a counterpoint to heritage structures, are an inspiration Rob draws on in his uniquely Melbourne work.

Rob constructs highly individual buildings that are anything but run-of-the-mill. Rather than compromise his vision for a project, Rob invests as much time as is needed with local planning authorities. A project in Nicholson St Fitzroy took 18 months to achieve approvals, but the result was stunning. The development asserts itself, claiming its space and contributing positively to the streetscape. This development was runner-up for the HIA 2012 best multi-unit development in Melbourne award, coming second to a 30 level $20M project. It was also featured in the Home and Apartment Trends magazine.

Rob works in a diverse range of Melbourne suburbs, from inner-city Fitzroy and Albert Park to established leafy suburbs such as Ivanhoe. The changing demographic, including an ageing population, is driving change. Those looking to downsize from family homes often want to remain in the same area – creating demand for new types of residences.

In a 30 year career, Rob has crafted many outstanding properties ranging in value from $1-10 million. He prefers to concentrate on just one or two key projects at a time so that he can always be available to his clients, no matter what time of day or night. Rob is proud that many of his clients engage him for successive projects – proof that his unique and personal approach to each engagement is highly valued and sought after.

A UNIQUE AND PERSONAL APPROACH TO EACH ENGAGEMENT. A HANDS-ON APPROACH WITH AN UNCOMPROMISING COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
