Mudgeeraba house, Gold Coast, Australia

Situated alongside a small creek in the picturesque countryside in Mudgeeraba in the Gold Coast Hinerland, this new home has been designed to complement its context by Matthew Dean at Matthew Dean Architects. The home has been designed to maximise the level of quality natural light provide cross-ventilation into the internal living spaces, by using high louvred windows. The large deck off the main living spaces takes in views to the creek and out towards the landscape. Living spaces are open plan and perfect for entertaining with a butler’s pantry and outdoor kitchen on the extensive deck. There is also a self-contained office that has been designed to be flexible and could also be used as a guest suite or elderly accommodation.

Invest in your architect

Architects can add value to your home through their design expertise and experience. While Architect’s fees are often more than Building Designers and Draftspeople because we are never simply ‘drafting a set of plans’. Architects spend a significant amount of time working with your brief and refining the finer details of your design. We invest a lot love and pride into your project to find the best design solutions.

Hiring an Architect. Registered or unregistered?

Would you trust the construction of your home to an unlicensed builder? I’m hoping the answer is NO. After graduation, architects need to go through an extensive examination process to become registered. Engaging a registered architect will give you the reassurance you have invested in the best design professional for your project.

Provide a detailed brief

The more information you provide to you architect the better the design will be to suit your individual requirements.
