Designed by De Matos Ryan, Emerging practice focus on the role that architecture plays in motivating its community is located in London, United Kingdom. De Matos Ryan combines expertise in architecture, landscape and interiors to create imaginative and well-detailed modern environments. At the heart of each commission is an ambition to make detailed, tactile, immersive, characterful environments and a belief in the social and public role that architecture plays in motivating its community.
Each commission provides a blank canvas to enable the client’s specific ambitions, avoiding predetermined concepts. The practice is able to bridge the gap between artistic and technical innovation in design and the commercial realities of development, producing work on a variety of scales: from product design such as the Bird Boxes for the Durham World Heritage Site (2004) to the reappraisal of the environmental branding for the Strada restaurant chain, where the practice is acting as design ambassador for over 70 schemes nationwide (2011).
