Ewers Architecture was established with a charter to defy mediocrity in the pursuit of creating inspirational architecture. We produce functional, award-winning buildings on time and on budget.
The studio is design-focused and provides architectural and urban planning/design services. All commissions are seen as a design opportunity, and hence the practice is structured as an intimate hands-on studio. This enables complete personal involvement from the team, which improves client-architect relationships, accountability and general project efficiency.
Presently, Ewers Architecture maintains a small client base comprising of government agencies, commercial developers, retailers and residential owners.
The main studio is located in West Melbourne with a small satellite studio in Geelong. The practice pursues projects throughout Victoria and has also completed more than 50 projects interstate.

EDWARD W EWERS – DIRECTOR
B.A. (ARCH), B.ARCH, R.A.I.A
Edward is a graduate of Deakin University, Geelong. His studies were broken by periods of travel and employment in the hospitality industry. To broaden his architectural education, Ed spent 1992–1994 in America studying architecture at Montana State University. During this time, he was fortunate to work for a renowned American architect, Will Bruder, at his desert studio in Arizona.
Following architectural registration in 1997, Ed travelled extensively to further his knowledge and gain exposure to great architecture. Upon his return to Melbourne, Ed established Architecture Matters P/L where he was the design director. Although a particularly successful business, Ed sold his share in February 2007 and founded Ewers Architecture.
Numerous projects under Ed’s direction have featured in a number of national and international publications. He has received public recognition and commendation in a variety of design awards/competitions. Passionate about architecture, Ed organises regular professional development 'archi-tours' interstate and overseas. He has also presented a number of public lectures to promote architecture.
Edward was a sessional lecturer in the Department of Interior Design at RMIT University for many years. From 2004–2009, Ed was a Building Committee member and advisor at Scope (formally Spastic Society of Victoria). In 2011 and 2012, he was a guest editor of Light Home magazine.
Edward thrives on design challenges and his small part in promoting efficient, practical and inspired contributions to the built environment.
