As Architects, we appreciate and understand architectural forms of the past. Attention to detail is paramount, as well as a respect for proportion and selection of appropriate and quality materials. We also have a strong understanding of the need for traditional solutions to adapt to suit modern living. MTY Architects have extensive experience in this field and with Listed Buildings, throughout the South of England and abroad.
MTY Architects appreciate the simplicity of form that can arise from a contemporary solution, be it an extension, remodeling or a new home in its own right. The key is to create beautiful calming spaces, free of clutter which complement the dynamic of modern life. We understand that contemporary Architecture is often about the context of the site, compositional logic, careful detailing and the tactility of materials.
At MTY Architects, we believe that good design shouldn't stop at a building’s external appearance but should continue throughout the home in the form of good detailing and great cabinetry. MTY Architects have an appreciation for combining practicality, lifestyle and comfort and understand that good interiors grow from good spatial understanding.
We have extensive experience in joinery & cabinetry detailing and are happy to advise on finishes selections and colours to create a complementary interior appropriate to the building.
At MTY Architects, we do not restrict ourselves to designing houses alone and often design pool houses, summerhouses and outbuildings.
We take the same design approach to these projects as we would to larger schemes. We believe that planning, detailing and architectural context is equally as important for an outbuilding as for a house.
The creative, visual, technical and design-based skills of our practice can result in transformative architectural designs. We incorporate practical requirements within an over-arching artistic vision to achieve aesthetic and environmental successes.
In Architecture, Transformation is defined as “The principle that an architectural concept, structure, or organisation can be altered through a series of discrete manipulations and permutations in response to a specific context or set of conditions without a loss of identity or concept.”
