Architecture Services

A New Approach to an Old Profession.

Mather Architects provides a full range of what would be considered typical architectural and design services throughout Virginia and West Virginia— schematic design, design development, construction documentation, negotiation and contract administration.

What’s not typical is our approach. We’re highly consultative and collaborative, partnering with our clients to understand their environmental and budget needs, then designing solutions that address them through value and innovation.

Our Services

We take pride in our ability to walk the fine line between blue-sky thinking and down-to-earth implementation. Plus, we’re not an all-or-nothing firm. We’re just as happy to offer a one-time consultation as we are to oversee a project from planning to ribbon-cutting.

Our Process

We Understand Budget

We take a highly consultative approach on every project, listening to our clients’ needs and concerns, then exploring solutions that address those needs with novel designs or unexpected site configurations.

It’s easy to go to extremes by going really cheap or fancy and expensive. We balance client objectives, budget, site characteristics, and local codes to create structures that are beautiful, functional, and within budget.

Community

Building Our Community

While we work on projects throughout Virginia and West Virginia, we love to help build and contribute here in our local community.
