Auhaus is an architecture and design studio operating out of Melbourne and Barwon Heads, Australia. The studio was founded by Architects Benjamin Stibbard and Kate Fitzpatrick, both of whom worked in larger residential firms before establishing Auhaus in 2011. With a different set of priorities in mind that went beyond the bottom line, Auhaus have made a name for themselves creating bespoke homes along Victoria's surf coast and in Melbourne's leafy suburbs. Avoiding the shopping list approach, each design is inspired by site context, landscape and importantly, the way in which their clients live. Kate and Ben are drawn to the complexities and intricacies inherent in every project and revel in the initial broad brush pen strokes down to the in-house fabrication of joinery hardware and lighting, ensuring that every project is rigorous, engaging and highly tailored to the end user.
Kate and Ben are both Registered Architects with the ARBV, and Auhaus Architecture is an A+ member of the Australian Institute of Architects.
