Mitchell/Matthews is a studio for urban planning, architecture, landscape architecture and interior design led by John Matthews and a group of dedicated senior partners. Located in a renovated 80-year old stone farmhouse in Charlottesville, Virginia, we work on a variety of master planning, residential, commercial and academic projects throughout Virginia and neighboring states.
Mitchell/Matthews began as a two-person firm in 1989. Our desire then-- as it is now-- was to pursue our passion for architecture and design with the guiding principle to do absolutely the best job we can for each client. We knew that if we provided thoughtful, intelligent solutions, consistently reliable service and exceptional design, we would attract a base of discerning clients and, in turn, a sustainable architectural practice. The success of this philosophy can be measured by our awards for design excellence. We have received recognition for production of consistently distinguished architecture from both clients and peers for a wide variety of work-- from individual small projects to the master plans of entire communities.
