Matthew Schulte

Matthew Schulte is an architect with MATHISON | MATHISON ARCHITECTS.

Matthew's approach to design begins with listening carefully and creating a dialogue between space, material, craft and context. He believes that design must address the practical – sometimes simply, but it must also enliven and inspire, embracing complexity when it's appropriate. As an architect, Matthew is always looking for partnership as the foundation of building relationships with clients, stakeholders and the design team.

He earned both his Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering and later his Masters in Architecture, from the University of Michigan. Matthew has taught and researched at the University of Michigan's Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning, focusing on re-envisioning the richness of materials and craft from bygone eras through the lens of modern computational tools and digital fabrication techniques. His research has taken him from Oklahoma to Austria and continues to influence his design and approach to architectural practice.

Matthew’s career started in Ann Arbor, took him to the San Francisco Bay area then back to Grand Rapids to be closer to family, friends and home waters. Matthew was immediately drawn to MATHISON | MATHISON ARCHITECTS for their modern, contemporary aesthetic, an excellence in client care and their wide range of projects.

When he’s not at work, you're most likely to find Matthew cycling with his wife and two young children or knee deep in a trout stream, immersed in the beauty of water and landscape.
