William Ross Architects
Architects and Specifiers - Fitzroy, VIC
Williams Ross Architects work primarily with local and state government and not-for-profit organisations to provide community facilities, specialising in sports and recreation, cultural and education.
‘... one of the things that strikes you is the universal design that has been implemented into this facility. It doesn't matter if you are in a wheelchair. It doesn't matter if you are elderly and frail. It doesn't matter if you are sight impaired, if you're a young mum pushing a twin pram. To get into this place, to experience this place, there is no barrier ... every ability has been accounted for.’ - Hon Damian Drum MLC, Member for Northern Victoria, Minister for Sport and Regional Development: Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre
We believe that great design weaves together an integration of all the client, functional, site and specific needs of each project. Effective functional planning, sustainability, universal design and well-resolved construction are fundamental to good design. Achieving this requires relentless attention to detail throughout the process.
We pride ourselves on adding value for our clients, while delivering projects on program and budget. We aim to create high quality, robust solutions and well-built architecture that wears well in the long term. We design ‘out’ from the brief and the site and find our inspiration for form and imagery from the site and client’s history and context.
