Das Studio is a burgeoning Architecture and Interior Design practice founded by husband and wife team Sara Horstmann and Dino Vrynios in 2018.
With a combined industry experience of over 20 years, our small but mighty studio is dedicated to delivering considered, authentic design solutions that successfully respond to the brief, environment and cultural context of each project.
DIRECTOR · ARCHITECT
Having completed his Master of Architecture in 2008, Dino is a registered Architect who has spent the last decade working in both small and large practice delivering a wide range of projects of varying scale, cost and complexity throughout Australia.
In 2015 Dino received the Jack Hobbs McConnell Travelling Fellowship in Architecture, awarded by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) for his submission, Modulation. This Fellowship enabled Dino to spend time traveling throughout Europe, Asia and Australia researching and studying the world’s best practice in Advanced Construction Methodologies.
In addition to his work in practice, Dino is a fierce advocate for the promotion of sustainable and quality design. This endeavour has been realised through his role as a two-term chapter councillor of the AIA and co-founder and Creative Director of the Festival of Architecture and Design (FAD).
