About

   The firm of Domani Architecture was founded in 1999 by Fabio Rigo de Righi a creative energized Architect driven by a passion for the build environment and a high level of quality in his designs.  Born in Milan Italy and having lived in several countries throughout his life this Architect was able to refine his observations of diverse cultures that he still applies in his everyday effort to grow within his trade.  Education came in the form of a variety of real world experiences with exposure to different ways of life and diverse Architectural influences.  

   The firms approach is one of 'boutique design' with true consideration for the clients' lifestyles as well as an unsurpassed level of service.

   Fabio’s interest in the built environment on all scales is defined by his upbringing in Italy and his extensive travels.  His design is driven by his passion for detail; the large and diverse urban scale, as well as, the most intimate of spaces.  Fabio has over 30 years experience drafting and building, this has given him a uniquely personal and in-depth sense of architectural fundamentals. 

   Extensive travel as a young man and a search for self-fulfillment expanded his passion for culture and environment and drove him towards architecture as a professional endeavor.  Fabio spent his formative years between the United States and Italy.  While studying in the United States he spent his summers in Italy working and travelling.  He spent time in the Lake Garda, Como and Maggiore areas, as well as in, Milan, Rome and Florence.  He worked in the family’s construction business founded by his grandfather in Milan.

   When Fabio started his firm in 1999, his mission was to provide the best possible service with the highest level of integrity.  This architecture firm does not pass projects along and “process” them much in the way manufacturing works. Our work is driven by the belief that every client is an individual. Every home will be designed by the Architect, and every detail will be overseen by Fabio Rigo de Righi.
