Audrey Matlock Architect believes in creating enduring architecture. Grounded in Modernism’s pursuit of innovation, our work explores new combinations of material, structural, and spatial relationships that eschew predictability and embrace inspirational and poetic experience. Our firm’s designs explore the creative potential of architectural systems, in combination with the specificity of a place and its history.
Our design approach reaches beyond a single discipline to integrate architecture with landscape, building technology and contemporary culture. A firm of forward-thinking designers, we expand the standard kit of building tools with new technologies and methods. Our goal is to create solutions that combine beauty and function in a manner that enhances the user’s experience. Audrey Matlock Architect is based în New York, United States.
