Hi, I’m Matthew.

I am the founder of MHK Architecture.  I have been a practicing architect since 1998 and am proud to have been a part of shaping communities around the country.  In South Florida and Naples specifically, you can see the MHK influence on nearly every city block or residential neighborhood; however, what I am most proud of, is the team that we have cultivated over the years to lead 9 offices including the beach communities throughout Florida, the low country to the high country of the Carolinas, and stretching out West to the mountains of Denver and Aspen Colorado.  We have created a great company of exceptional people who love to exceed our client’s expectations.  These days, I split my time between Naples Florida and the Highlands North Carolina offices.  

My clients know me as problem solver, accessible, and a bit of  a workaholic; however, when I am away from my desk, I am busy helping my wife Trista raise two incredible children, Maverick and Shiloh.  I have always had a work hard, play hard attitude.  Stress releases include breaking 80 on the golf course, motor yachting, and keeping up with the most incredible design team on the planet.

Our Practice

Our goal is to help successful and visionary people build their dream home with a process that is more enjoyable than they ever thought it could be. That’s because we believe that architecture is all about the people who inhabit it. So we keep the human relationship central, both in the result and in the process along the way. We want to put the humanity back into architecture. We design for the way you live, for the needs of your family, and on a timeline that doesn’t mean you have to put your life on hold.

We’re committed to the historic craft and practice of architecture, but always driven by and responsive to the wishes of the client. It’s not that we don’t have strong convictions about architecture itself — just ask — but the joy for us is in helping our clients realize their vision.

So you won’t find any black turtle-neck attitude around here. That’s so last century. We bring the sophistication without the stuffiness. No, you’ll find a team ready to work hard, have fun, and create buildings as diverse as our clients’ dreams.

Our Portfolios

Because MHK is client-focused, our work is stylistically diverse, drawing from the lifestyles of our clients and the regions in which they live.
