"Good architectural design within education does more than just exist. It helps minds develop. With a family who are entirely based within the education and wellness space, it has been a passion to find new ways to stimulate learning both inside and outside the classroom."
Commencing with Paterson Architects (PA) in 1990 and again in 2019, Steve Mueller has demonstrable experience on a range of projects. His capacity was recognised within the practice, becoming an Associate Director in 1993.
Steve has experience over a wide range of project types. Steve has significant experience in the education sector. He has specialised in taking projects from project inception to design through to completion.
Through this carried experience, he has developed expertise in the successful management of the project team. His focus is on high quality design that achieves functional, aesthetic and environmentally sustainable outcomes and reflecting positive budget management. He has developed design communication skills including 3D (SketchUp) modelling.
Steve has received positive feedback and commendation from clients on a regular basis.
