Luigi Rosselli

M Arch EPFL (Switzerland)
NSW Registered Architect No. 4895 (Nominated Architect)

After many years seeking wisdom and knowledge from the world, from eminent architects including Mario Botta, Alvaro Siza, Umberto Riva and Aldo Giurgola in universities and workplaces in Milano, Lausanne, Switzerland and New York, Luigi settled in Sydney in 1984 and shortly after commenced his practice in Surry Hills.

He immediately embraced with enthusiasm the Australian culture, landscape and spirit and married his international upbringing to the local.  The result was a great number of buildings that are not parochial or provincial, and his best projects are the fruit of a marriage of cultures.

For posterity, he has bred a progeny comprising a successful architect, a challenging artist and a world recognised musician.

A keen collaborator and problem solver, he is interested in highly client specific work, bespoke details and forming a strong connection to the immediate environment.

Jeffrey studied at the University of Sydney, graduating with First Class Honours in 2017. He was awarded the Faculty of Architecture’s Graduate Award in Innovation and Design Excellence and the university-wide scholarship for honours research, among other distinctions.

Lauren Cvetko

B Arch 2023 (ongoing) (USYD)

Lauren is currently completing her final year of B. Architecture at USYD.  Spending her childhood and teen age years abroad Lauren was exposed to a breadth of cultures and their architecture.  Consequently, she believes in designs that facilitate the preservation of identity.  Lauren realised her creativity at a young age having her work exhibited in the 2007 “Operation Art” exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW. But her path towards architecture did not develop until later.

Originally studying civil engineering, she discovered it was not satisfying her need to be involved in the design process. After joining LRA, Lauren’s love for architecture has been cemented, where she finds pleasure in learning from the experienced team.
