SONELO is an architecture and interior design studio based in Melbourne founded by Wilson Tang and Elodie Lim.
Sonelo creates simple, thoughtful and beautiful spaces that adds quality to your everyday life.
Working collaboratively with our clients, we explore design in its multi-layered realms of the project brief, site, form, functionality, materiality, connection with the landscape, and community. With quality over quantity in mind, we explore and fulfil the latent potential of each project.
Seminal to our sensibility are the celebration of culture, diversity and landscape in all our work. Sonelo strives for authenticity, integrity and timelessness.

Wilson is an assuring voice of spatial planning and problem solving in complex architectural design. His calm demeanour as a listener and analyser is the key to design success in each bespoke projects Sonelo has taken on. Within this personality he leads and nurtures his students and team by provoking a highly detailed thought process from inception of design to project procurement.
