Director- Practice Manager- Architect

After graduating from the University of Melbourne with honours in 1992, Dominic set about establishing a successful architectural award winning practice, Bagnato Marian Guarino Architects that undertook a variety of projects from individual homes, multi -unit developments, residential warehouse conversions and boutique commercial work. In 2007 Dominic left his former practice to establish Bagnato Architects with Marie Bagnato to concentrate on producing architecture of the highest level using natural materials & luxurious finishes for a timeless appeal.

To obtain a greater understanding of the construction industry, Dominic throughout his career gained valuable experience working on construction sites by building various private projects, ultimately obtaining a commercial & domestic builders license, further enhancing his expertise and skill, all driven to enhance the clients experience .

This has become valuable when working in a collaborative team at Bagnato Architects to ensure the best interests of the client are met in the procurement of their buildings. Builders in turn have come to appreciate and enjoy working with Bagnato Architects with the full knowledge that an understanding of construction processes as well as architectural design solutions are at the fore front in all decision making in the completion of their projects. Dominic is a registered architect with the Architects Registration Board of Victoria as well as an A+ member with the Australian Institute of Architects.

He is currently writing for various industry leading websites such as HOUZZ Australia
