Piccolo House – Piccolo Office

Our homes carry our family name in every way. They are a testament to our passion, our commitment to quality and our vision to create exceptional homes where people love to live.

Piccolo has been a family company for half a century. Michael’s parents, Mima and Martin, founded the family business, building homes in suburban Melbourne. Having grown up with the family business, Michael took what he learned from his parents to evolve the company into the industry leading developer it is today.

Five decades on, with an award-winning portfolio of extraordinary homes,our ambition to be better is stronger than ever. We’re constantly deepening our understanding of how to create truly exceptional homes that stand the test of time – from considering the finest details to how they connect to their surrounds and form authentic communities.

The Piccolo team

Michael Piccolo is proud to continue representing his family’s values of craftsmanship, quality and an enduring commitment to the resident. This has been true from the very beginning and will be carried into the future.

Piccolo is constantly expanding to include our longstanding team members, and most importantly, the people that trust us to create their homes. Their futures. Their legacies.

Piccolo has created a Penthouse Office for an exciting future at the top of Piccolo House, South Melbourne. Bearing the attention to detail and considered elements that are the hallmarks of a Piccolo project – it’s the epitome of the Piccolo ethos.
