Every project is unique. Every client has their own requirements. Every design has its own identity.
Matt applies a detailed and enthusiastic approach to each new project. With a sound belief in producing economically responsible, environmentally appropriate and creative architecture, each project is considered in respect of its own unique elements.
Irrespective of project size, type or budget, at the heart of every design, Matt Wood : Architect Ltd strives to create unique and distinctive spaces. Everything we do is shaped by our love for thinking [interrogation] creativity (designing) and making (building).
Good architecture is about realising our clients’ aspirations as a physical and emotional experience; it is influenced by people and places.
People … We believe that architectural design is a collaborative process, and throughout the design process, the project is continually reviewed and honed with our client. We listen to our clients’ aspirations, understand their specific requirements, and evaluate the constraints and opportunities of their proposals.
Places … As well as being driven by our clients’ brief, our designs are context driven – influenced by location, landscape and the natural environment. We listen to how our clients use the site and look at how ‘place’ might inform the design proposals. We believe that the surrounding environment has the potential to augment the design and enrich people’s lives.
Considered Design :
This process is further enhanced through the application of progressive and innovative design. We utilise various design tools, including sketches and modelling, to enable our clients to understand the proposals and make key decisions through the design process, such as layout, function, scale and relationship to ‘place’.
Details + Materials :
From the beginning, we think about the materials that we are going to use, how they will augment the design and how they are to be assembled. It is essential to our architecture that materials, detail and construction are an integral and informative part of the design process. The materials that we select are what realise the architecture.
We work closely and collaboratively with local contractors and craftsmen prior to and throughout the construction process, to ensure that our clients’ aspirations are achieved.
