Led by Ilana Freadman and Michael White, Freadman White embeds a curiosity-driven and experientially charged tension in its architecture. Seeking to reveal beauty in seemingly simple and often overlooked settings, we strive to create visually intriguing and emotionally resonant spaces.
Believing architecture’s mandate to making positive contributions to individual lives and the wider urban plan, Freadman White designs contextually informed structures with disciplined whimsy. Rather than responding literally to physical surrounds, they pursue sensorial and textural moments informed by memories of place and the achievements of modern architecture.
Freadman White is no stranger to the Think Brick Awards, being the only architects winning the Kevin Borland Masonry Award more than once. Their elegant and fascinating projects, Napier Street for Milieu and Hoddle House have stunned the jury by illustrating flawless execution and meticulous attention to details.
"You don't have to be lavish across a whole building. You just have to be lavish in key moments that really enhance the project as a whole. ... Complexity that’s hidden in a simple outcome." - Ilana Freadman on our podcast.
