the design practice

Granatelli & Stone is a NSW North Coast based architectural practice formed in January 2002 by Don Granatelli and Richard Stone with the aim of providing high quality services in the disciplines of masterplanning, architecture and design.

The practice draws from over sixty years combined architectural experience and both formalises and extends a working association that began in 1986 between Don Granatelli and Richard Stone.

The Granatelli & Stone studio is characterised by a comfortable working environment where clients are always encouraged to review drawings and documentation in progress. We produce all technical drawings in CAD format, often complemented by hand drawn development sketches or computer generated 3D images depending on the scope of the project.

Granatelli & Stone offer masterplanning and architectural services in commercial, industrial, education and health care applications, with residential projects being considered under special circumstances. Our firm may be engaged from the sketch design stage through to tender and construction. We work regularly with local engineers, surveyors, builders and other consultants such that a suitable team can be recommended for any particular project and budget.


The dedication of considered design principles, attention to detail and duty of care to clients extends into the practice as a priority for any project, regardless of scope or budget. The services aim to be informative, efficient and well detailed for clients, consultants and builders
