Hi, I’m Matthew Dean, a Registered Architect with Matthew Dean Architects based in Gold Coast, Queensland, with over 20 years of industry experience. I started the Architect Designed blog because I’m passionate about good architecture and I want more people to work with registered architects when designing their homes. I personally invest a lot love and pride into a project and am never simply “drafting a set of plans”. Architects can add value to your home through their design expertise and experience and I believe that engaging a registered architect will ensure you have invested in the best design professional for your project.
