About Us

design focused

With our primary goal being the beautiful realization of our client’s vision, we focus only on the design of our projects, not the design and build. Guided by the wants of our clients and the passion of our designers, we spend our time articulating dreams, not wrangling contractors.


We do not chase fads or trends. Instead, we employ a classic design approach that creates a contemporary elegance that stands the test of time. Simple, yet bold. Understated, yet impactful. Each project results in impressions that never fade, but last for a lifetime of enjoyment and experience.


The function, architectural detailing and aesthetic goals for each and every project are accomplished through project specific detailing, architectural continuity and client input. While passion drives our designs, empathy and caring support them.


Applying structure and formality to each environment, we create refined and stylish environments that present our clients and their guests with a distinct experience uninhibited by whims and misguided inclinations.

personally attentive

We place the utmost importance on each of our clients and their projects. That’s why we dedicated ourselves to providing the highest levels of customer service, as well as design service. For this reason, Matthew Murrey himself, is directly involved in the design and development of each project. His leadership, design style and eye for aesthetic balance ensures every client’s needs and wants are met.


With every project, we introduce the latest technology to create clarity and efficiency to our designs. Our 3D modeling offers our clients a photo-realistic look into the future, eliminating surprises, matching expectations and delivering on their vision.

Our Services

Concept Design

Once our team has a clear understanding of the design expectations and expected construction budget, we conduct a detailed analysis of the site in an effort to provide accurate drawings. We are then able to begin the Design Process. The length of this phase can vary dependent upon the scope of the project. During this phase, scaled drawings, sketches, photographic representations and virtual 3-d models are produced to clarify the overall concept design, as well as the necessary documents to be used for bidding, permitting construction.

Construction Detailing

Upon approval of the construction budget, technical drawings with construction details and specifications are produced. These documents serve to provide contractors with the project specific standards and specifications ensuring the project is constructed as outlined and proposed.

Contractor Selection & Project Monitoring

Once all plans have been finalized, we guide the client through the contractor selection process. The first step in this process is to issue a Design Set along with a Bidding Specification to ensure all contractors are providing equivalent and comparable bids. The bids are then analyzed, if necessary, interviews are conducted, and the most economical and qualified contractor for the job is selected. Project monitoring includes review of performance, cost and payments throughout the construction of the project. This ensures the project is constructed and implemented to the client’s expectations, design specifications, and within the budget. This service allows the client to experience maximum results with minimal stress and hassle.

I used Matthew Murrey Design for my new pool with spa, along with an Arbor with a fire pit, and extensive landscaping front and back on my 1 acre lot. I totally enjoyed working with Matt and Heather. They were EXTREMELY knowledgeable. The grounds look better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend them.

Bill Meyer


Excellent designs and wonderful to work with! I try and use Matthew and his group on my projects whenever possible.

Jason Kongabel


Matt did a great job designing our outdoor living area, including replacing an existing pool and designing an out door kitchen and separate living area, as well as all the related landscaping. Matt then directed the construction and made sure everything was done as expected. The attention to detail and followup was phenomenal, and i would highly recommend Matthew Murrey Design.
