An experienced architect, Matt is passionate about place making and regeneration. As a student he was nominated for the prestigious RIBA Silver Medal and his commitment to quality design continues to this day. Matt believes that better designed buildings and places have many measurable benefits such as improving social integration and productivity, lifting people’s spirits, increasing return on investment and increasing tourism.
