Fred M. Fargotstein, RA

Architect Fred M. Fargotstein established his practice in 2004 in order to focus on his affinity for older homes--working with their owners to preserve their character through well-crafted and stylistically appropriate restorations, renovations, and additions. He has over three decades of experience in all aspects of architectural practice. Fred earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree with University Honors from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1982, and is registered in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

When he is not attending to his clients, Fred pursues his passion for gardening at his home in Pittsburgh's Morningside neighborhood.

Fred provided pro bono services for many years to the Design Center of Pittsburgh, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving quality of life through the design of the built environment. He was a member of the organization's Design Consult Steering Committee, and received the organization's Excellence in Consulting Award in 2008.

During the winter, Fred serves as a volunteer member of National Ski Patrol. He has served as the director of the Laurel Highlands Nordic Ski Patrol, and is an instructor in the NSP's Mountain Travel & Rescue Program.

In addition, Fred serves on the Board of Trustees of the Richard Miles Decker Memorial Scholarship Fund, which provides deserving children the opportunity to attend summer camp.
