what makes Value Architects group special?

Fully Registered Architects


Registered Architects are more than a drafting service. Like your lawyer, we are experts obliged to work in your best interests. Our value to you and to society at large is in  creating the best possible places for people to live, work and play.

A Service that Comes to You


We meet you in your home or workplace (Melbourne Metro). Flexible hours can be arranged to suit you, perhaps even a virtual meeting online. No spin, no bling, just the services you need where you need them.

Research, Knowledge and Humility


Our clients deserve architects who prove their worth time after time. Value Architects brings established knowledge and latest research to your project, but our most important research topic is you. We also love the work of Professor Flora Samuel. (Read Sarah's review of her latest book here.)

Engaged in Industry Debates


We are active in the campaign to stop inappropriate development in Federation Square. Our Principal, Sarah, has been on ABC radio, and is active on social media. She believes architecture is not a luxury service and champions good quality design for all.

Mentoring University Students


Throughout 2019 Sarah will be a volunteer mentor to a senior student from Melbourne University. Helping students move from academia to professional practice is another way we create value.

Trained in Communication


Get your team on the same page. Sarah has undertaken extensive Professional Development in Psychology and Counseling. She wants to really hear you and address your needs. Not on the "same page" as your partner? Let's talk and get you closer to the spaces you need.
