about us

FRED Architecture has evolved from multi-award winning practice Fiona Winzar Architects established in 2005. Our offices are our home studio in South Melbourne next to Melbourne’s city heart and beautiful Merricks Beach Mornington Peninsula. Recognising the need for more economical, sustainable and practical living, our focus is for Functional, Relaxed, Environmental, Design, FRED ARCHITECTURE.

Specialising in houses, our designs are driven by the sense of place, making each project a specific response to its location, but always warm and human in scale. We encourage a highly sustainable approach and also offer super high performance dwellings that incorporate European Passive House design principals with thermal, airtight and fresh air ducting technology.

Be it a new house, extension or refurbishing an existing heritage home our aim is for sustainable living with a sense of peace and beauty.

Design Approach
Fred Architecture does not produce an ‘off the shelf’ product.
Fred Architecture adapts to and is inspired by each client, location and budget for an individual response. Taking our clients viewpoints and needs help us to help them take their expectations further.
Quality does not always equate with an expensive fitout. The important things to good design are spacial solutions and clever use of materials that work within the budget. The aim is to maximise the client’s enjoyment of their site and space and to add value to their property.
Client Focus
Fred Architecture is a boutique practice providing highly personal attention, allowing us to run the projects efficiently and to give the clients and the project the attention they deserve. The benefit to the client is that they remain a priority from beginning to end and that the design outcome strives for excellence.
