“Matt Bradley Designs” was initially established as a personification of immense passion and raw ingenuity, and gradually, was further facilitated to the current commercial exemplification in the field of building design. 


Matt Bradley (Director) aims to provide his clients with not only the best final product for their vision, but also, the best service in the industry. Matt has been known to continually exceed even the highest of expectations. 


Professional experience in high rise mixed-use residential, low rise residential, railway infrastructure, townhouse developments, and commercial projects across South-East Queensland, Matt has over 7 years in his field. 


Making use of the diverse experience gained working with leading industry professionals, Matt delivers projects for homeowners and builders and developers, with ease. Matt works closely with town planners, builders, building certifiers, structural engineers, civil engineers, energy efficiency assessors, and various specialists, required for each unique project. Revit Architecture is used to produce a detailed BIM model for effective communication. 


Gaining qualifications through Queensland University of Technology, Matt earned a Master of Architecture degree in 2015, proceeding from a Bachelor in Architecture, with honours, in 2014. Soon afterwards, Matt was registered as a Building Designer through QBCC, and is insured for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity. Providing design and drafting services, Matt delivers new homes, renovations, extensions, commercial, and townhouse developments, across Queensland. 


The journey of designing and building meaningful places can be very challenging. There are many hoops to jump through on the way to your desired project, Council and building requirements make just two of these hoops. Assuring the process is as easy and enjoyable as possible for you, Matt breaks the project down into bite sized pieces, while always keeping the big picture in mind. Establishing realistic goals that match the budget, while taking advantage of the unique context of each project, your objective is Matt’s objective, and he works tirelessly to achieve it.

Matt’s love for design is indelible to his nature, his first project was at the age of 6, when he began building treehouses in his backyard. He soon found himself assisting his father in building decks and home extensions. Matt has worked with various materials and construction methods, even tig welding a custom aluminium BBQ from scratch. If it wasn’t for his love of design, Matt would have definitely become a builder. Following this passion for Architecture, Matt enrolled at QUT, to start the long path to becoming an Architect (not currently a registered Architect). Matt was fortunate to work for DBI Design while at university, and gained extensive experience across a broad range of projects, including high rise mixed-use residential, commercial and railway infrastructure projects. Matt graduated from QUT in 2015 with a Master of Architecture and soon registered as a Building Designer to establish “Matt Bradley Designs”. 


Matt is based in Brisbane and grew up on the Sunshine Coast. He knows South-East Queensland very well and absolutely loves the Queensland lifestyle. Matt loves to spend his spare time in anything art or science related, physics and geology being his favourite sciences. He enjoys travelling, camping, hiking and other nature based activities.


Ask the right questions and explore all avenues. Once all parameters are known, the optimal design will be found through rigorous testing and refining. This process increases the value of
your project, while decreasing its construction cost.


Matt has a diverse range of knowledge that covers most building professions, the design can quickly take shape before consultants are engaged, saving you time and money. Matt’s fees are very competitive as the business is run from home.


Matt is always ready to answer your calls and reply to your emails with the best advice possible. He is flexible to work around your availability, often working weekends to ensure his clients get the best professional building design service.
