Matthew Cox


In his projects, Matthew aims to work collaboratively with clients and communities to create places and spaces which people enjoy learning, working and living in. Over the last twenty years, he has led residential, educational and heritage schemes of various scales and across all project stages.

He was project director for the Canada Water masterplan and for one of its first buildings, which will provide new dockside workspace and a leisure centre for the local area. He has completed major residential-led mixed use schemes focused on providing a broad range of new homes across all tenures at St Andrews and West Hendon. Matthew also completed an academy school in Southwark on the Aylesbury Estate in partnership with Southbank University.

As a registered Conservation Architect, Matthew is working on the conservation of the Grade I listed Holland House in Holland Park. He has has been involved in the practice’s pro-bono work, completing a community training centre for a charity in Malawi, a project which he presented as part of the ‘Make Design Matter’ lecture series organised by Article 25.

He trained at the University of Brighton, Oxford Brookes University and University of Cambridge with degrees in housing and urban development, environmental design and architecture. Whenever possible, Matthew dedicates his time to developing a new community garden and community centre in his local neighbourhood in Finsbury Park.

Within the wider practice, Matthew is actively involved in our Housing Group and Sustainability Steering Group.
