MSc (Hons)


Fabio Rosso received a MSc (Hons) from the University of Udine, Italy, in Mechanical Engineering in 2000. Following an assignment as a CAD Manager in Italy, he was employed in the UK by HCS Group as a Design Coordinator.

After joining Robinson Associates in 2002 as a Mechanical and Electrical Design Engineer, he contributed to PRP Architects’ and ZEDFactory’s new-build St Matthew’s project, a low-energy development of 12 keyworker flats in Brixton using state-of-the-art technology, as part of a wider masterplan to regenerate the St Matthew's Estate.

After setting up his own consultancy in 2005, Fabio worked on a wide range of projects, including corporate headquarters for the Trieste-based shipbuilding company, Fincantieri.

Returning to Robinson Associates as a Senior M&E Design Engineer in 2013, Fabio managed the design delivery of multiple projects, including the £7 million Bethune Road, Hackney, residential development for Family Mosaic Housing Association.

Among Fabio’s current projects at Skelly & Couch are Dartmouth House, an 8-unit residential project in Chiswick, west London. The client is a new development company, Carbon Living, who seek to make the most ecologically advanced housing possible. The super-structure will be made up of cross-laminated timber floors, walls and roof, to be built by Eurban, and will feature natural ventilation and wood-burning stoves. He has also been working on a world-class new horticultural science visitor, exhibition and archive centre at RHS Garden Wisley and a hotel-led, mixed-use development of offices, retail space and residential dwellings at King’s Place in Southwark.

Fabio has contributed to the redevelopment of the Victorian Grade II-listed Farmiloe Building in Clerkenwell, which comprises a new-build extension to the original, listed 150-year-old building; the restoration and redevelopment of the Grade I-listed British Academy; as well as new build projects for New College, Oxford and Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
