I work at an award winning design centred practice where we put our clients and the brief at the centre of each project, regardless of size, sector or budget. Our approach is to listen, understand and respond. Our relationship with you will shape the project we create together. This process allows us to find effective, integrated and bespoke solutions and simplify our clients’ experience. Each of our projects is unique and is treated as such, evolving from initial meeting through to completion.

We are passionate about light, space and creating unique homes for people to live in. We offer an architecture that is refined, simple and thoughtful; combining form, function and aesthetics, with the aim of realising and exceeding your expectations. We will always go the extra mile and have a real sense of pride in delivering each and every project. We offer a free initial consultation with clients so please drop us a line or call in to discuss your project.

Working with Matt has been a real pleasure. He\\’s incredibly friendly, diligent and professional as well as being down-to-earth and understanding. He\\’s helping us through all stages of the project, has helped us get planning approval, and has been very flexible when we change our plans. I\\’m looking forward to the rest of our project, working with Matt, and would recommend his services to anyone.

Additional living and sleeping space

★★★★

Matthew has a lovely calm manner and he took time to ensure that he understood our requirements and brief. His experience informed his questioning and we felt confident that he (as part of Cryer & Coe) would be able to deliver on the type of domestic project that we were looking to complete.

★★★★★

Victorian terraced kitchen diner side return / extension. We chose Matt because he listened to what was important to us and the ideas we already had, but then took our ideas up a level, in ways we couldn’t have imagined (even though my partner and I thought we must have discussed all the potential options already!), whilst (hopefully) remaining in budget. We are at the options booklet stage and they have come up with multiple amazing designs and interesting materials to consider. What we liked the most was that he was able to tell us where we could use different materials to get the same look but at a lower cost to make the budget go further. He also offered to put in planning permission for the loft conversion at the same time as our kitchen diner extension so we can easily go ahead with that when we have the money in a few years. Any ‘problem’ areas were not viewed as problems by Matt but a challenge to come up with clever solutions to maximise the use of the space and create something special- and on a modest budget too. Cheers Matt and cant wait to get going! Jen and Geth

Rear Extension

★★★★★

Matt is courteous, friendly and professional and went out of his way to assist our domestic extension project. We will be using his services once funding is secured. Thanks Matt!

Bath city centre townhouse

★★★★★

We found Matt on Design for me to help us with our renovation project which included intneral reconfiguration, new kitchen and a single store extension for a 3 bedroom townhouse in a conservation area that needed planning permission. From the very start, Matt listened to all our needs and understood what we wanted. He helped us envisage what we could achieve based on our budget by coming up with different options. He is also clear with his timelines and has not failed to deliver! We are very happy we have found Matt to help us with our new home and cannot wait for the build to complete!

I have been very impressed with Matthew Coe from the outset. He has been enthusiastic and incredibly helpful. I feel he is passionate about my forthcoming project which is wonderful and he has been happy to discuss all options and to help in any way he can which is great as it is complicated as the build would be abroad. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an architect to work with on any project.

a new build house

Working with Matt has been great so far, he was really quick to arrange a virtual meeting with us as we are on a tight deadline with our planning and understood that from the off. He’s incredibly easy to talk to, very diligent and understanding as to what we’re trying to achieve with the all important budget consideration. We’re really looking forward to see our project come to life over the coming months and working with Matt. Definitely an architect we would recommend.

Two-story side extension

★★★★★

Matt and the team have been helpful and responsive at every stage of the project so far, from first contact through planning submission. There has been plenty of email and Zoom communication at each stage. The initial ideas were varied, imaginative and well-presented and the finished designs fit what we need and asked for perfectly. Looking forward to the next stages!

We used Matt to design a new upstairs layout with a dormer extension as well as a single storey extension. He was brilliant! He listened to our initial ideas, then gave us absolutely inspiring ideas with them in mind and helped us to think beyond our modest ideas. He gave us an exciting design that was practical yet different from the norm, whilst still working within our budget. He supported us at every stage and we can highly recommend him. Thank you Matt!

Karen, Complete house refurbishment and extension, Portishead
Matt recently help to transform my kitchen and give me a downstairs shower & toilet. Matt took my vague ideas and presented me with several options to choose from. By using part of the kitchen I now have an amazing wet room in what was the under stair cloakroom. He recommended removing the ceiling and putting skylights in and this has made the kitchen seem bigger and much brighter. He checked progress with the builder throughout the work. I now have the kitchen, dining area and wet room I dreamed of.
