Suzanne Hunt Architect is a boutique architectural and interior design practice specialising in residential, heritage, hospitality and mixed use projects in Perth and country Western Australia.

Known for her down-to-earth approach and wide-ranging professional and life experiences, Principal Architect Suzie Hunt has a warm and engaging manner that manifests in the buildings and spaces she designs.

In 2004, as a mum of four young children I established Suzanne Hunt Architect; with fellow architect, mum and now, Associate Catherine Lee. With a couple of computers and a desk in my bedroom I had a dream of delivering beautiful architecture differently.

My 20 years’ experience working in the UK and Australia; in large, small, government and private practices on a range of projects; had highlighted the need for a more personalised, flexible, enjoyable, client-focussed, approach to the delivery of great architecture and design.

Several years have passed and I am proud to say we are still focussed on our clients enjoying their creative journey.

As Principal it is a delight and privilege to walk alongside them providing personalised advice for the duration of their project: from selecting a site, to master planning and briefing; preparing concept designs through to construction administration and project completion.

Working with our in-house design team of architects and designers, our trusted external consultants and professional builders all of whom are selected for their expertise for each project, Catherine and I nurture our clients’ dreams to make them a reality.

Taking on a limited number of projects ensures we have the time to really listen and get to know our clients; and develop considered, holistic design solutions that are fully resolved and documented, financially viable and environmentally sustainable for the long term.

Our multi-awarded project portfolio has grown but our biggest advocates are still our clients.

From humble beginnings our office accommodation has thankfully improved but our philosophy of delivering beautifully-detailed, sustainable architecture, better, is still the ethos and driving force of Suzanne Hunt Architect.
