Our History

Mattinson Associates Ltd. is an award-winning architectural practice designing unique, bespoke buildings that are beautiful, timeless, functional spaces to live, work and play in, that blend seamlessly into their settings.

Founded by Lindsay Mattinson, BAS | BArch (UCT) | MArch | DipArch | ARB | RIBA in 2004, the practice builds on her 20+ years of experience creating places for people that value the significance of design. Having completed many residential and large-scale commercial buildings throughout Europe, the foundation of our success comes from listening carefully to our clients to create beautiful, functional architecture that makes a real difference to their lives, both working and at home, whilst also allowing us to maintain close relationships with clients and all design and management aspects of our projects.

What we are known for

We are best known for our ability to provide clients with unique, innovative and creative design solutions with distinctive use of materials for the urban, rural and historic environment. We produce beautiful, functional buildings and environments to live, work and play in, that fit seamlessly into their settings.

We hold an unprecedented success rate for obtaining statutory approvals and work closely with the local planning and conservation authorities to achieve this, without compromising the concept design.

We have extensive knowledge from the commercial sector which we use in domestic and smaller scale architecture to provide new and innovative solutions. We bridge the gap between the commercial and domestic sector.

Having completed a large number of works within the historic environment, we have an in depth understanding of how to integrate historic buildings with contemporary design and materials.

Knowing our clients

We believe the success of each project is highly dependant on strong communication between architect and client.

Our creative solutions evolve through our in-depth interaction with our clients. An understanding of peoples’ character and careful exploration of organisational demographics, allows us to unlock the right type of space for the right type of client. When one gets it right, people flourish in an environment that comfortably caters for their needs providing a stimulating, comfortable, creative environment to live and work in.

Our focus is on people performance and well-being. We look to designing buildings and spaces for the people that use them, not only those that pay for them. Once we truly know the client, we have the key to unlock the best creative solutions.

Our approach to design (Materials)

Our architecture is about longevity and transcends fashion. It is about wrapping the right materials in the right location, around the right form, to provide seamlessly integrated architecture, function and environment.

We believe in creating modern timeless pieces of design & architecture. Our designs are devoid of fashionable gimmicks where passing popularity will demand constant updating.

We design environments by moulding an envelope around the relationship of internal spaces and functions. Building envelopes consist of different planes of natural materials from sustainable sources.

The manner in which different planes of different materials meet creates different solutions – solid against transparent, rough against smooth, cold against warm, bright against dark.

The layering of these planes, horizontally and vertically, allows designs to be integrated into their surroundings. The landscape can be brought into the building and the building functions taken out into the landscape, blurring boundaries and the delineation of space.
