RH Partnership Architects, Cambridge (2002-2012)

Matt joined R H Partnership Architects in 2002, and soon became an integral part of the practice. He was involved in a number of key projects, including those for Trinity Hall Residences and the University of Warwick Department of Mathematics and Statistics, as well a complex housing project in Impington, Cambridge.

Humane Architecture Workshop (2000)

Matt spent several weeks working with his tutor, Frank Lyons, at his practice in Plymouth. Here he learned about craftsmanship and attention to detail. With Frank he immersed himself in the design process, working on a scheme for the Grafton New Hall RIBA Country House competition, in which the practice finished second.

TP Bennett, London (1998-1999)

This was Matt’s introduction to the commercial face of architecture, where strong design was seamlessly blended with productivity and efficiency. Here, Matt was involved in a number of exciting projects including a set of high-end apartments within seconds from Trafalgar Square, a new headquarters for one of the country’s leading dental institutions and a new halls of residence for University College London.

Matt is an organised and capable architect with a keen interest in all aspects of architectural design, from concept design development through to job-running on site. He is enthusiastic about architecture and combines an ability to develop designs quickly with numerous graphic and creative skills to ensure that his clients are in involved in the design process through all stages of the project.
