Mitsuori Architects is led by Matthew Murfett & Melissa Lim. Our directors each have over 20 years experience working across a range of award winning large and small scale projects in Australia, the United Kingdom, Europe and the USA. Their breadth of experience includes residential and interior architecture, community, education, commercial and hospitality projects through to major public infrastructure and urban master planning projects. Through our work as a practice, and our long-standing partnerships with other design/building professionals, we continue to explore the craft of architecture. We love working with challenging sites, unusual briefs and technically demanding builds.

Practice Ideology

Mitsuori Architects is a design led practice focused on the creation of enduring and innovative architecture that is uniquely reflective of its place, environment and the people that inhabit it. Founded in 2008 by Matthew Murfett & Melissa Lim, our practice directors bring together large-scale project experience and technical expertise with the personalised service and attention to detail of a small boutique design practice. Both have worked with world renowned architectural practices on major cultural, commercial, residential and interior design projects in Australia, UK, Europe and the USA. Their departure from iconic city scale projects was inspired by a desire to explore the craft of architecture on a personal scale, and create buildings that are respectful of the past, reflective of the present and robust for the future. At its core we believe the design process is a journey of discovery, translation and creation. Ours is a collaborative journey shared openly with our clients, design team, specialist fabricators and builders. We focus on producing well designed and executed architectural outcomes delivered by an experienced and cohesive team. We believe environmentally and socially sustainable design are fundamental to the design of buildings and urban spaces. From the outset, these values influence site response, building orientation/configuration, selection of products, materials and technologies, and ultimately the technical resolution of structure and envelope.
