ABOUT

OVERVIEW

Founded on the philosophy of innovation through collaboration, Fender Katsalidis has evolved from a Melbourne-centric architectural practice, to a highly awarded, multi-disciplinary international design firm whose work now influences built environment thinking across the globe.

Specialists in multi-residential, cultural, commercial, aged care and hotel typologies, we seek and deliver holistic solutions in architecture, masterplanning, urban design and interiors—solutions notable not only for their design quality, but also their civic contribution and economic mindfulness.

To ensure such outcomes remain our hallmark—and expose the practice to new and different ways of thinking—we frequently bring together local and international consultant teams to work side-by-side with our own.

The quest for holistic solutions has also driven us to extend our expertise far beyond the expected. Fender Katsalidis was a pioneer, and remains a leader, in 3D virtual modelling and building information systems, while the Unitised Building system invented by practice co-founder, Nonda Katsalidis, continues to revolutionise construction timeframes and costs.

Perhaps best known for our definitive tall building and public realm design, we are equally proud of our lesser profile achievements: the documentation and quality assurance processes, for example, regarded as the gold standard throughout the construction industry.

As sophisticated as our technology may be, and as reliable as our processes have proven themselves, we know that ultimately it’s experience that ensures the original design vision is realised. Our directors thus remain ‘hands on’ with every project from inception to completion.

CULTURE

The emergence of Fender Katsalidis as a global, design-led practice is as much a measure of our culture, as it is our creativity.

A true design studio, we solve problems collaboratively: one team, comprising many points of view, approaches, levels of experience and areas of specialist knowledge — augmented where required by best-of-breed consultants — all focused on realising the best possible client outcome.

That teamwork and interplay of roles, ideas and contributions continues throughout the life of the many and varied projects we undertake, ensuring each team member is continually challenged, and continually growing in expertise.

Mentoring plays a key role in this development. We strive not only to attract the best and brightest design professionals from around the world, but also to help them realise their full potential by sharing the accumulated wisdom of the firm’s senior personnel.
