Erbar Mattes is an award-winning architecture and interior design practice established by Demian Erbar and Holger Mattes. The directors founded the studio in 2015 following years of collaboration in leading positions at one of the UK’s most renown architecture firms.

 

Erbar Mattes' work is driven by a search for clarity and simplicity in unlocking the full potential of a particular site and client brief, aiming to create unique and uplifting spaces through a thoughtful articulation of light, materials and form.

 

Since its inception, the practice has developed a growing portfolio of private commissions and been recognised for the quality of its design and built work. Erbar Mattes has won the New London Architecture Award for Best Use of Materials and the Haringey ‘Best House Award’. It has been shortlisted by BD Magazine for the Small Project Architect of the Year Award, and the work has been widely published in the UK and abroad.
