Michael Patroni has been the Director of his own architectural practice for more than 20 years. He has a vast range of experience at various scales of residential, commercial and community based projects. He has received numerous architectural and industry awards for his work throughout his career. 

In 2000 the name of the practice was changed from Michael Patroni Architects, to spaceagency architects.

In October 2005 Michael completed a Masters of Architecture degree at R.M.I.T in Melbourne. He was invited to participate in the Masters programme which had been established to allow practitioners with a significant body of work an opportunity to reflect on the past work of their practice and in doing so identify design strategies which have shaped their practice’s approach to architecture and speculate on future design strategies that could inform the on going work of the practice.

The outcome of this process highlighted for Michael his own intense interest in the poetic quality of built space from an experiential perspective. He strives to create architecture that creates opportunities for spatial experiences that delight and engage the inhabitant as well as the innocent bystander.

Alessia graduated from Curtin University obtaining a Masters of Architecture, with High Distinction in 2014. She joined spaceagency in 2016 as an architectural graduate and has experience working on a wide range of interesting projects. Alessia endeavors to create an architecture that enforces evoked experiences that generate moments of surprise and delight.

Her dissertation was an exploration into the significance of the everyday within architecture, investigating architecture that bestows silence and intimacy, in particular spaces that invite you to take refuge in their shelter. She is constantly seeking to find beauty within the ordinary and is fascinated in moments where the ordinary becomes interwoven with the extraordinary.
