Design & documentation

Fairweather Homes works with  MODUS Architects to create customised designs using the flexible construction system and is able to draw on their expertise at all stages through the design and delivery process. With strength in design, project management and off site construction, Fairweather Homes is able to deliver prefab modular projects to suit a broad range of needs including residential, educational and commercial applications.

Care is taken to consider site topography, orientation, location, environment, climate, materials selection and energy efficiency.


The unique design approach integrates the capabilities of Assemble Systems to achieve bespoke architectural design solutions manufactured off site.

Finishes, fitout and detailing can be standardised for economical production or customised for unique results to suit the owners’ taste, climatic conditions, bushfire areas and harsh coastal environments.

Collaboration & consultation

We take a consultative approach through all phases of design, manufacturing and construction. This approach places an emphasis on communication and transparency and is suited to working with a diverse range of clients, particularly with individual private home owners, community based and government organisations.

We also maintain contact with a broad network of sustainability, education, social, environmental and humanitarian networks where our projects demonstrate a strong alignment of values.

We are also happy to work with other architects who are committed to off site construction using timber-based solutions.
