Maybank and Matthews Architects have completed a wide range of residential, commercial and arts-related projects, demonstrating both expertise and enthusiasm towards design and management.

We collaborate with clients from inception to completion of a project to ensure that we translate their requirements into innovative and compelling architectural solutions.  We bring a fresh approach to each project, with no preconceived ideas, fully absorbing the client’s expectations, the context, and the opportunities presented by the brief to produce a personal and sophisticated design.

Whilst we will consider projects of any size and nature, we have extensive experience in the refurbishments of listed buildings throughout the United Kingdom.  We also have expertise in the creation of exhibition space through the completion of a number of art galleries in the United Kingdom, Asia and South America.

Maybank and Matthews Architects Ltd is an RIBA chartered practice.
