Schiavello partners with Launch Pad to celebrate more than a decade of fostering design across the Asia Pacific region. Offering emerging designers unprecedented exposure and the invaluable opportunity to have their prototype taken through to production, the Launch Pad programme provides unique access to manufacturing, product development, marketing and business for the A+D community. In addition to an ongoing mentorship programme with a network of industry experts, the winner of Launch Pad will receive access to some of the best minds across manufacturing, marketing, retail and public relations.

Marketing & Design Director, Anton Schiavello said of the initiative; “In the spirit of Schiavello’s rich culture of supporting designers in Australia, Schiavello is excited to be apart of Launch Pad, and aligning our 50+ years of creative leadership and vision with a new generation of Australian designers. Our collective design story extends internationally to Singapore and very soon Beijing, and I’m excited to also collaborate with talent nurtured throughout Asia Pacific. ”


Schiavello’s VIC construction team will be working with Mirvac and Woods Bagot to deliver 367 Collins Street retail upgrades for new tenancies, new facades at the front and rear entrance, base building and lobby upgrades.

We congratulate Warren Mahoney Sydney for their recent achievement in winning the Schiavello and Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) Future Workplace People’s Choice Award for their entry “Anywhere Spaces”!

Their thoughtful piece represents the philosophical ethos of working in 2030: doing conventional work in unconventional spaces.

Schiavello is pleased to announce our South Australian construction team has commenced works on the new Veterans Mental Health Precinct (VMHP) at Glenside.

Named in honour of local hero Jamie Larcombe – killed while on operations in Afghanistan – the $15 million state of the art facility will provide advanced care for our Veterans as part of the State Government’s Transforming Health plan.

The Jamie Larcombe Centre will provide inpatient and outpatient services, specialist services for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, as well as teaching and research spaces.

It will also include 24 individual rooms with ensuites, a gymnasium, a public garden, as well as private areas for reflection, where Veterans can spend time with their families. Construction is expected to be complete by late 2017.
