THE TEAM
MICHAEL ROSS
Building Designer | Partner | BArch

MICHAEL ROSS

Building Designer | Partner | BArch

Michael is a founding Partner of MR Building Design. Having graduated QUT in 2012, he has extensive experience across a broad range of projects, with his early years focused on both residential and commercial. Today, Michael focuses on his passion in residential designs, such as new homes and Queenslander renovations, in addition to his expert knowledge of commercial and educational fit out projects.

Michael’s passion for architecture began from a young age. He often found himself on construction sites as his parents always built their own homes, which lead to Michael developing a passion for design and architecture. Michael says one of the most rewarding aspects of being a building designer, is seeing the end result. Standing in front of a home that you designed is extremely satisfying, but watching clients’ faces as their dreams are made into reality is priceless.

Outside of work, Michael enjoys playing soccer, reading and catching up with friends.

VICTOR NGUYEN
Designer Draftsman | MArch
VICTOR
Designer Draftsman

Victor graduated with a Master of Architecture in 2019 and began working in the construction industry with a residential building and construction company on the Gold Coast designing new homes. He had opportunity to participate in a wide variety of projects, including single dwellings, townhouses, interior design and exterior design. Victor loves to learn new things and challenge himself through architectural design.

Since starting with MR, he has been extending his field of knowledge to include renovations, extensions, and learning the ins and outs of working with traditional Queenslander homes.

Victor’s architectural inspiration comes from his interest in the construction process, but particularly the design aspect beforehand. One of the biggest factors that drew him to this industry is the ability to use technology to visualise designs with a high level of detail before execution. Victor believes that houses are not only an asset, but they are also a place to live, and hold great value in people’s lives with precious memories. A home is a family foundation, and as a designer Victor wants to help create a space that meets the functional requirements of a family.

Outside of work Victor loves to spend his free time practicing the drums, and playing badminton with friends on the weekend, where he can refresh himself and be ready for new architecture design with a high level of passion.

Having the ability to design and create, seeing finished products and the rewarding feeling of designing for clients.

IN MEMORY OF

Ryan Grose was a co-founding partner of MR Design and brought more than 13 years experience in residential building design to the team. Ryan worked in established design firms across all project types, but specialised in townhouses and multiple dwellings, new home designs and Queenslander renovations, bringing his distinct flair to every project.

Design was always a strong passion for Ryan, which developed into a passion and profession – a natural progression and a perfect fit to pursue building design as a career. Ryan loved the idea that he could create spaces or designs that would be enjoyed by somebody or a family for decades. He was continually inspired by the evolution of the industry that allows designers to create beautiful pieces of livable art, where one is only limited by their creativity.

Sadly in 2019 Ryan passed away in his long battle with cancer. His memory and legacy will always live on at MR Designs and the MR team will forever be grateful for all Ryan taught us.
