Designing in different mediums, Architectural Built Environments, Metalwork Objects, and Original Photographic Imagery, while striving for similar results.


In all of Melissa Mather’s work, she considers factors that are specific to the design situation, Context + Needs, to then develop a Design Parti. With a Parti in place, supporting Details and selection of Materials can be pursued. Finally, returning back to the Parti to assess the Design Concept has been manifested.

The selection of the appropriate materials is critical, not just from the prospect of functionality and life cycle, but also from the qualities that sing from those materials. Is it solid and cold or translucent and glowing, does it have sound when walked upon? These properties speak in the space and are heard by it’s inhabitants.

For the STUDIO good design is good for the Users. The Space, the Object, or the Image improves and enhances the user’s Life.
