Good Design for Everyone

Good design is able to create something wonderful and solve any problem. Good design acknowledges each project is unique, reflecting the individuality of the client and the site. Good design isn’t a style, it’s a process.

Our buildings are designed with careful consideration of our client, site, environment and context. We endeavour to deliver outcomes that are responsive to each individual, creating unique spaces that make life better.

Craggspace holds experience in the fields of private residential, multi-residential, retail, and commercial projects, providing a full range of architectural services, from concept to construction.

Craggspace Architect Team Newcastle Matt


M.Arch (Hons), B.Des (Arch) – University of Newcastle

Matt has been working at Craggspace since his graduation from the University of Newcastle in 2021 – allowing enough time to fully engage with a diverse range of residential projects across the Hunter and Central Coast region.

Matt’s main interest involves working on alterations and additions of existing houses. He believes that with some careful re-planning and manipulation of the existing structure and spaces of a residence, anyone can have their dream home realised.

His fascination with the field of architecture is on par with love for beer, fitness, and all things Seinfeld.
