The Naked Architect: Fred Architecture, S1 E3

Project: Victoria Road House

Architect: Fred Architecture

Topic: Schedule and timing

Episode Length: 44 mins

Fiona Winzar is Principal of FRED Architecture a design and sustainability focused practice based in Melbourne. Fiona’s architectural work is recognised by the architectural community here and abroad with multiple awards and publications. The crescent shaped addition to this home in Victoria Road is an unexpected rear extension to a charming but formal Victorian villa in one of Melbourne’s most conservative suburbs. Instead of the box on the back, this extension is the remnant of a circular cut-out made into the rear north facing back yard. The project is layered with an eclectic mix of references and personal meanings for the client making the home highly personalized although the references are familiar enough to have universal appeal.

The Naked Architect is an initiative of Open House Melbourne, with support from the Architects Registration Board of Victoria, and in association with ArchiTeam. The Series was launched in 2017 as part of the year-round program of Open House.
