Matt Whitaker Architect / Principal

Matt’s approach to Architecture consists of applying a diverse body of knowledge, gained from more than 25 years of design and construction experience, to each unique design problem.   A practical approach based on several years hands on construction experience and association with true design build practitioners, is combined with theoretical and design-based applications.  A licensed Architect since 1992, Matt was granted a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Newschool of Architecture in 1993, where he continues to stay involved as an Instructor of Design.

 

Matt believes that each project brings inherent challenges which can be solved through creative, unique and project specific design solutions.  A successful project results from the application of a design philosophy based on an artistic interpretation of project and client requirements, site influences and the honest expression of materials and structure. Synthesis of these elements will result in a thorough and well coordinated Architectural statement from concept through project construction.
