Matt approaches his practice with a spirit of adventure that parallels his love of travel and the outdoors. Viewing each project as a unique opportunity for exploration and discovery, his novel approach responds to the specific qualities of a place and his clients’ individual aspirations. He sees the design process as analogous to hiking in the mountains, propelled by his desire to find what lies around the next bend or the perspective offered from a distant peak. By undertaking new endeavors with this spirit of curiosity and discovery, Matt unlocks the potential to discover unforeseen possibilities.
Matt begins each project by constructing its individual narrative, developing a framework of experiences and ambitions for the client and the community that will guide the design team. He views architecture as a civic responsibility, and each project as an engaging and meaningful intervention that can transform a place and the experience of people.
