Matt Bell

Managing Director
Principal Architect VIC & WA

BELL was founded by Matt in 2014 and personifies Matt’s experience of people-led, purposeful architectural solutions.

Matt combines 27 years of relevant local, national and international architectural experience with 20 years as a Director or Principal within architectural consultancies.   His highly developed stakeholder management skills, depth of design experience and master planning expertise is highly regarded by clients and colleagues.

Matt was educated and commenced his career in Sydney and established his own practice across New South Wales and South Australia in the late 90’s, before merging his practice with a national consultancy in 2007 where he spent seven years significantly contributing to its growth.

Combining his national exposure and desire to create spaces that positively influence how people interact with architecture, Matt established BELL Architecture in 2014. This philosophy is embedded in BELL’s culture, where health and well-being are highly valued, and the workplace promotes connection and work-life balance.

As BELL expanded operations across Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, Matt personally selected a highly skilled team of architects, interior designers and landscape designers genuinely focused on client outcomes.

As Managing Director, Matt provides leadership and governance to BELL’s team.
