MATA Architects is an RIBA chartered architecture practice based in Westminster, Central London. The practice has grown out of Dan Marks Studio, founded in early 2015 by Dan Marks as a collaborative studio to develop projects at a range of scales; from bespoke furniture to new build and open space/public realm, whether private residential, commercial, public or cultural.
We approach each new project from first principles, challenging assumptions and cemented ‘truths’ in a constructive and explorative way. We find this kind of curiosity can help uncover both pitfalls and opportunities. Often good ideas come from asking questions.
We believe that architecture should be of it’s place, responding to local context; landscape, culture, history and economy, whilst also bold enough to be original. It is this tension between the old and the new that ultimately produces architecture that is both thought provoking and durable.
We enjoy working closely with our clients to create an open and collaborative relationship that results in crafted and bespoke solutions that surprise and delight with the unpredictable.
