Matt is an accomplished designer who skillfully integrates sustainability with programmatic needs to create impactful educational facilities. He balances broad design strokes with his perpetual pursuit of the details—the exact light, color, pattern, and material that breathes life into each project. With his knowledge and experience designing resilient, energy-efficient schools, Matt’s work often centers on passive sustainable design strategies and an iterative process that evolves into compelling architecture, from sweeping canopies to daylight filtering through perforated paneling. Known for his ability to clearly articulate complex architectural ideology, Matt is equally comfortable presenting conceptual schemes to project stakeholders as he is leading design reviews at HMFH.

Because we construct the environments we live in, design is constantly around us and often a source of happiness. When design falls short, we lose that source of joy.
