Registered Architect NSW
Dmitry is a registered architect based in our Launceston studio. He holds a Bachelor of Design from Newcastle University, a Master of Architecture from the University of Tasmania, and attended the International Wood Program at Aalto University, Finland, which focuses on wood architecture, engineering and material sciences.
His work with practices in Victoria, New South Wales, and Tasmania over the past decade has seen Dmitry work on several multi-residential, educational, cultural, and commercial spaces — from a bespoke retail fitout on a busy shopping lane to the half-a-billion dollar Walsh Bay Arts Precinct on Sydney Harbour.
Alongside his professional experience as a project and senior architect, Dmitry’s passion and expertise in timber design led him to start his own practice in 2008 with a focus on wood-based architecture, furniture, and art installations. He paired this continuous specialisation with a two-year stint as a research assistant at the University of Tasmania’s Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood.
For Dmitry, architecture is essentially a built narrative that tells a story. He draws inspiration for his designs from the melodic and mesmerising work of Japanese carpenters and sees the possibilities of complex timber designs that lean on interlocking components instead of mechanical fixings or adhesives.
