Architect, Robert Harwood returned home after a period of practising overseas realising just how much Australians value good home design. He recognised, however, that many are missing out on the advantages of using an architect due to the complexity of architects’ service structure and concerns about pricing.
Robert created My Architect in 2009 to change the way Australians approach their renovation or new build. To make architects’ services clearer, more relevant and more accessible to Australian homeowners. To offer professional design and better building, for the real world.
