More about MATCH

We’ll find the architect that’s right for you

There is no such thing as a standard architect. Each has their individual design philosophies, strengths and specialist areas. If you’re not familiar with building projects, making the right choice can be a game of chance.

That’s where we come in.

As architects ourselves, we know who’s out there – and what they do well. We believe in working with only the best talent. And we know that the best outcomes are reached by matching a client’s personal aesthetic ideas and preferences with like-minded architects and designers.

We’ve put together a shortlist of some of the best architects in their field – and we’ll be happy to review your project and make an impartial recommendation. 

How we work with our architects

Surroundings is committed to working with architects and designers who genuinely understand our clients and share their vision. That’s why we take the time to discover as much as possible about all our partners, from your individual preferences and interests to details of your dream project.

The more we know about you, the easier it is to match you with suitable clients. If you’re one of our shortlisted practices, and your profile is a great match, you’ll benefit from an introduction to a client who’s ready to go – someone who has completed a HOME workshop and knows what they’re looking for in a home.

We’re here to help

Our job is to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible. We’re happy to provide peer reviews at key sign-off stages, to help your clients feel comfortable with their decisions and reduce the likelihood of design changes or reversals further down the track.

We also encourage clients via simple pulse surveys at key stages of the design – giving you invaluable insights into what you’re doing well and areas you can improve.

What we don’t do is tell you how to do your job. You control the design, the format, and the delivery of your design, documents or models to the client. We’re simply here to ensure that what you provide aligns with the agreed outcomes of the brief.
