We believe that architectural advice should be within everyone's reach.
Sarah started the business that became Value Architects Group in 2016. She grew up under an architect's desk, studied and practiced for 15 years in Australia and the UK, but the profession only ‘clicked’ with her when she realised it is about people first and buildings second.
Unlike other architects Sarah has no vested interest in your project being bigger, more expensive, or made to suit her style. She created Value Architects Group to give you the power, analysis and insight to make the best decision for you. Delighted clients are our folio.
Sarah became an architect because she enjoyed both art and maths, and because it runs in her blood - her amazing mum and step-dad are architects. Her dad is an engineer.
Sarah is not like other architects for many reasons. Fixed pricing is a start. But the main reason is that she is not here to "win your project". Value Architects Group is about helping people make good decisions about their future home. This matters so much because the design and build process requires *you* to make literally thousands of decisions AND each one has an effect on biggest financial investment your likely to make in your life. It really pays to get the strategy right at the beginning.
Registered Architects are professionals like your lawyer or certified accountant. What we offer is different to a drafting service. As an expert in space and its complexities, we work in your best interests to create great places for your life, work and play.
Sarah has undertaken extensive Professional Development in Psychology and Counselling. She wants to understand and and address your needs. Not on the "same page" as your partner? Not sure what to prioritise? Let's talk constructively.
We meet you in your home or workplace (Melbourne Metro), at our offices, or online. No spin, no bling, just the services you need where you need them.
Sarah mentors students from The University of Melbourne through their Alumni Program. She also teaches at Melbourne and Monash Universities. Helping students move from academia to professional practice is another way of creating value.
There is no shortage of advice out there for people thinking about building, renovating or buying a home. But how do you know what’s going to work for you? Talk to a very approachable architect. This is what we've dedicated our lives to - getting it right for our clients.
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, their elders past and present, on whose unceded land we live and work.
