Matt Hamel, AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Matt's passion for preservation springs from the desire to instill a sense of stewardship and history's resonance in sustainable, vibrant designs though tangible connection with the particularities of a place.  He thrives on synthesizing technological and old-world solutions for planning and restoring historic structures, engaging and learning from clients, consultants and craftspeople, and perpetuating the continuum of a site or building's story for future generations.  The projects Matt enjoys the most involve working with a collaborative team of designers and builders toward a common goal of rich, elegant, and enduring spaces and uses. 

Lively engagement results in extraordinary places.

SHKS Architects finds elegance in necessity, elevating the core principles of each unique site and building project to reflect our clients' aspirations.

Through collaboration, care, craft, and discovery, we reveal architecture's inherent optimism, contributing to our local community and to the global stewardship of natural and built environments.
