Erbar Mattes is a London based architectural studio. Demian Erbar and Holger Mattes established the practice in 2015, after having collaborated since 2008 on a wide range of arts, hospitality and residential projects in the UK and abroad.

 

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. Harvey Road, our first completed project won the DMI 2017 Best Use of Materials Award and the studio has been shortlisted by BD Magazine as 2017 Small Project Architect of the Year.

 

Our interest in sensitive urban and rural contexts is reflected in current commissions that include a guest house in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the complete reconfiguration and extension of a Grade II listed building in London, and a new-built annex to a private house in a Conservation Area of Cambridge.
