MATHISON | MATHISON ARCHITECTS
MMA is a full-service architectural firm based in the design-rich environment of West Michigan. The work of MMA is grounded in modernism and the belief that each project has a unique potential to embrace its site, enrich its environment and provide for meaningful experience.
Specializing in educational, high-end residential, commercial and civic design, the two founding Principals, Tom Mathison, FAIA, and Evan Mathison, building on combined career and project experiences, represent the core of a team that blends knowledge, insight, and design sensibility to create engaging solutions of value.
Our practice is committed to rigorous planning and creative design, based on a collaborative approach. Informed by a modern aesthetic, we believe that structure, space, and connection between interior and exterior are essential to the creation of meaningful places, regardless of size or complexity. It seeks to strengthen the continuous connections between interior and exterior spaces in response to the unique context of each site, program and client.
We believe that good design connects people in a powerful way. The relationship of architecture with its site is at the center of our work. A collaborative process, and the thoughtful, considered development and evaluation of ideas early in the design process produces creative solutions that uniquely connect people with place, and with each other.
Our design thinking and execution is driven by collaboration and open communication. This motivates our team toward deeper discussion and exploration in the process of integrating ideas, as well as establishing a common language and preferred direction. For our clients, collaboration engages them as a critical part of the design team, and for construction professionals, it creates an environment of partnership toward a common goal.
Our design approach demonstrates stewardship of environmental and financial resources, from common sense planning and integration of sustainable strategies to a unique understanding of alternative construction delivery methods. As reflected through space, form, light, materiality, and detail, we believe our clients deserve not only good design, but a holistic and informed design approach to produce the most intentional and sustainable results.
Integrity, trust and ethics are important. We are committed to high standards of professional practice and engaging architecture with a view of long-term value to its owners and users. We do what we say we will do. We believe that trust is earned by our actions.
