MANI ARCHITECTURE

Or you could say HAND ARCHITECTURE because Mani means ‘hands’ in Italian

We are a kick arse group of women using our hands
We think hands are probably the raddest tools you could have
We have some of the best hands going around
We use them to explore / craft / smash out all the crazy ideas in our mind … by pen or sometimes by hammer

MANI ARCHITECTURE is hand made A R C H I T E C T U R E

MANI ARCHITECTURE is hand made, done really well

Soooooo … hand made means Mani Made

Sometimes life is hard, it throws a lot at you. With it, you either sink or swim. At Mani we always swim and this means we are swimming with you.

MANI ARCHITECTURE is a special place, it’s a place where strong, passionate women hold their heads up high and do everything architecture aaaand interiors aaaand art.

Our little humble studio space is based in Fitzroy, but that doesn’t mean we won’t travel, we do. We work all over the place.. Melbourne, rural, down the coast, interstate, how about we just say anywhere.  

Here at Mani we design and execute your dreams, you hold onto us while we let you use our hands. Our hands can do a lot for you.

We specialise in residential architecture .. perhaps a new house, perhaps a little revamp to your existing house, perhaps an extension, even just a hand to help you place your furniture or to work out whether it’s worth even buying that house. No job is too big or too small for us at Mani, we want everyone to feel like someway or how they need help to live their best life.

We are Architects and Interior Designers and proud of it. We are approachable and proud of it. We are quirky and proud of it. We are not scared to get dirty and proud of it. We are all things architecture and interiors and proud of it.

So don’t be shy, we love a chat, we love to educate, we love to learn, we love to help. We are MANI ARCHITECTURE and proud of it.

SARA

architect
interior designer
red wine drinker

The Brainstormer
An afternoon wine with Sara will quickly become a whirlwind discussion about how she can make your home amazing. Before she's got one drink down, she'll be spilling ideas, madly sketching designs on a napkin. Get comfy, because she won't rest until you're head-over-heels in love with your new pad. 

The Energiser Bunny
This chick never stops. Sara's brain is usually in overdrive, but this is just how she gets shit done. No minute is wasted when she's thinking up a funky-ass design for her funky-ass clients.

The Site Queen
If you're looking for Sara, you won't find her at her desk. You're best bet is to go searching on site. This is where you'll see Sara in her natural habitat. She's a gal who'd much rather get her hands dirty than be keeping up appearances.

red wine taster

The Quiet Achiever
If you catch René in the morning, you’ll see a quiet gal with her head down, deep in concentration, always with some swish spreadsheet that has streamlined everything. If you catch René in the evenings, she’s the life of the party. That’s just how this professional babe rolls.

The Smarty Pants
Don’t be fooled by her humble demeanour, René is one smart cookie. This chick is always switched on, always thinking hard, fast, and way outside the box. She’s both precise and artistic. We’re just lucky if we can keep up.

The Psychic
There is something mystical about this woman. Somehow René can interpret exactly what you’ve been imagining, but weren’t able to articulate. Watch her magic hands draw your dream house, and you might just believe she’s got superpowers.

red wine allocator

The Glue
If you’re looking for a conventional bookkeeper, then you’re barking up the wrong tree. This carefree babe is an unstoppable force. She keeps the wheels turning, and we’d be lost without her.

The Perfectionist
Trish takes being organised to the next level.. We are in awe of her mad administrative skills.

The Super-Mum
Trish is the balancer of a thousand tasks (the biggest is keeping the other Mani ladies in check). She tells it like it is, and she’ll short your shit out. Like a true workplace mum, she savours that afternoon glass of red wine – she’s earned it.
