WHO WE ARE . . .

Matthew Clay Architects are a Chartered RIBA Practice based in Corsham near to the World Heritage setting of Bath.

We are imaginative, energetic and successful in what we do, taking great pride in the results we achieve. The practice draws upon a wealth of experience throughout its close-knit and highly-talented staff, who share a collective passion for considered, innovative design.

Each project, irrespective of budget, size or timescale, is unique and viewed from a fresh perspective; this perspective is always client- and context-driven.


We love to collaborate with any individuals and companies who champion good design, and have a large network of creative talent to call upon.

What we do

WHAT WE DO . . .

Matthew Clay Architects are


We want to hear what our clients have to say throughout the design process. This allows us to fully understand any requirements and, in so doing, maximise the chances of ensuring the best possible outcome from a project.


We enable clients to realise their dreams and aspirations. From the earliest outline discussions, we actively encourage clients to put forward their own ideas and engage with us as initial ideas develop into more detailed plans and, ultimately, into a built reality.


We aim to communicate our thoughts clearly through sketches, digital visualisations, physical models and - perhaps most importantly - through ongoing design discussions. From first concept chats to on-site detail meetings, a full dialogue is vital to ensure the design process realises the best possible outcome.


We are always learning from our clients. Each brief and project is treated as unique and, while we rely on our expertise for any given design, we always view it as a fresh challenge that can be learnt from. 



Working with Matthew Clay Architects was a truly wonderful experience...

Matthew really listened to our requirements and understood what we wanted to achieve... However, the results were beyond our wildest expectations!

Ben and Kay - Kennington, Oxford

Matthew has exceptional flair and talent particularly in wonderfully imaginative use of light and space .He is also a delightful person to work with and establishes great relationships with everyone because he is calm and reasonable but also strong and influential..He is thorough, disciplined and rigorous , anticipating issues and managing them for you and fending off the stresses that a big building project causes. We could not be more delighted with the wonderful home he has created for us nor with this brilliant architect with whom we have had the good fortune to work - and who is now an enduring friend.

We would love to hear from you, whatever the size of your project and whatever your aspirations are.
