Our Studio

As a petite practice our clients are our lifeblood which means they will always be able to work directly with the studio’s principal.

Who we are

[The Ultimate Question]

Being pocket sized we believe that as a practice we can provide our clients with something a little special, not only a hands-on approach, but fundamentally our fighting spirit and tenacity for a quality outcome within budget. Ultimately we’re not afraid of the “alternative” in a sea of the “standard”. We do “standard” and do it well but remember, next time you’re afraid to share an idea; someone once said in a meeting “let’s make a film with a tornado full of sharks”

We dig that idea

Why we exist

[Number 42]

Simply put, seeing a design come to life gives us more than a warm fuzzy feeling. Typically, it means that your dream (our newly adopted one) is a reality and to be fair; it gives us a little bit of an ego boost. Hey we are Architects after all. We have a grass roots approach with a Prada style mentality, and hopefully that’s a breath of fresh air.

Our philosophy

[Take the M1 + Turn Left]

We understand that sometimes you want the face behind the name, and sometimes you may just want a coffee. We relish a hands-on approach to ensure that all our clients are happy. Architecturally we will always endeavour to be sympathetic to the brief and budget to provide a stellar outcome.

Ultimately, we’re a little different, and we’re kind-of cool with that.

Not just the sprinkles on top

At Tanya Mathers Architecture + Design we believe that all designs are important, irrespective of their type, size and budget and that they should be treated that way. To strive for a quality outcome not only means that we have achieved our objective but also indicates we’ve left our clients happy; and ultimately doesn’t the world need a little extra bit of happy.
