Canny – interior design

About Us

Canny has been designing and building homes across Melbourne for over 25 years, giving us the experience and design credibility to tackle everything from new homes, custom builds and small to medium density projects.

Founded by Damian Canny alongside business partner Lachy Watson, the duo began the Canny journey renovating and selling houses. As the business developed, our reputation as a credible and innovative builder spread across Melbourne.

In the early 2000’s Canny took a step towards a more full service offering, bringing the design functions in-house and employing a team of architects and interior designers. This resulted in our first custom designed and built home in 2003, and the beginning of our contemporary pre-designed homes range.

Acclaimed the very best in contemporary luxury home living, today Canny encompasses a team of over 50 professionals, who work collaboratively on every project to ensure seamless processes and product of the highest quality.
