After graduating from The University of Sydney, Fergus worked for Peter Stutchbury between 1992 and 2000 on a wide range of projects. These included residential works, the Olympic Archery Pavilion, and several major faculty buildings at the University of Newcastle awarded for their innovative passive solar and thermal design.


At this time he also worked on desert buildings for Rick Joy Architects in Tucson, Arizona, and studied in detail the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Mayan and Aztec architecture of Central America.


Fergus established his practice in 2000 and it has since built a well-recognised and published portfolio with selected projects featured on the website.


Since 2010, Fergus has tutored design in Professor Glenn Murcutt's regional studio at the University of New South Wales. He has been a guest tutor at the Architecture Foundation Australia and has lectured at the University of Newcastle and the National Gallery of Australia. He has written for Houses Magazine and was the NSW AIA awards residential jury chair in 2015.


Fergus has been a registered architect in NSW since 1996 (reg. no. 6086), and a member of the Australian Institute of Architects since 2001.
