We create design and development solutions for urban sites that tap into the full potential of each property to bring our clients enduring value and delight.
We focus on living and working environments of all types, typically located on compact and challenging inner-urban sites, with untapped potential. Each project is underpinned by a rigorous analysis of each client and property long-term development and occupation needs, which informs the design, buildability and delivery strategy. This strategic process is led by Anthony Windust, Director, whose career prior to starting Windust, included key roles in leading property development, project management and architectural companies.
This strategic focus on developing effective site feasibilities and masterplans early on brings substantial value to our clients seeking to test and confirm commercial and development feasibility, prior to determining project priorities and direction.
Housing projects range through luxury new homes, quality alterations and additions, interiors styling to town-houses, apartments, aged-care living as well as environments for students and for ageing in place. Commercial projects focus on building upgrades, workplaces and health clinics, which draw on our extensive experience with workplace, hospitality and hotel design for the most ambitious of companies.
Junko Windust leads the interior design and styling team at Windust. Junko brings an extraordinary talent with scale, proportion, composition, colour and texture to each project. Junko’s sensibility and attention to detail brings precision and warmth to each project. Our interior design services extend to project styling, which we also offer as a stand-alone service. Our styling service transforms and refreshes existing interiors by carefully curating elements including artwork, lighting, furnishings, furniture and colour.
To provide a high quality service, we have partnered with a reputable local builder to offer full design + construction for apartment interiors.

We create spaces that are a joy to inhabit
Brett C – “Anthony successfully navigated a townhouse development through the very restrictive planning conditions to obtain approval. He then brought the project up to documentation stage, creating a considered architectural solution that maximised the potential of the site. Working with Windust has led to a superior development outcome, particularly when compared to standard practice. Their thorough approach to design and cost management meant the final product remained on budget with no compromise in design or quality.”
James R – “Anthony Windust completed the concept design and construction documentation for the commercial refurbishment of 199 Toorak Road. His creative ideas and attention to detail was impeccable and added considerable value to this project that required integration of an existing 1980’s built complex and structure. His knowledge and work ethic was very much appreciated and we look forward to working with him on future projects.”
Laura M – “Thanks to Windust Architects, our office has evolved into a fresh, contemporary workspace. As the peak body for the diverse museum community in Victoria, our office space needs to consolidate our branding and reference the state’s vibrant cultural sector. Anthony and Junko have applied their significant expertise to tailor a practical and creative solution which opened up the communal spaces while cleverly maintaining the individuality of each workstation. We have proactively recommended Windust Architects to others and would not hesitate to do so in the future.”
