Renato d'Ettorre Architects
Born in Italy, moved to Australia with his family in the 1960's, studied architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney. In 1984 Renato lived in Sardinia investigating many architectural sites around the mediterranean islands. He later worked for Pier Luigi Nervi and Paolo Portoghesi in Roma and Harry Seidler and Romaldo Giurgola in Sydney. Renato started his sole practice in 1990 after a commission for a house in South Coogee. The house, with a magnificent site by the sea, inspired Renato to take the opportunity to forge a personal path within the plurality of the modern architectural milieu. The personal path chosen has manifested itself not only in his design values, but also in the practice of his architecture; an intuitive way of working in which projects are allowed to develop in their own good time through continual revision and modification, working through the endless design possibilities in architecture. Renato's architecture draws inspiration from past masters and civilizations, attempting to represent the present with a desire to leave enduring buildings for the future.
