What we do


MVSA believes that the built environment can and should enhance life, boost productivity, promote healing and contribute to the wellbeing of people, society and business. Our architecture is pragmatic, but also poetic. Our buildings owe their organic, sculptural presence to the pains we take to maximise views, exterior spaces, transparency and daylight. The same qualities make them easy to live with. We strive for sustainability through smart energy and materials use and by making our buildings future-proof. Timelessly beautiful on the outside, our architecture is flexible and adaptable on the inside, extending its useful life. Also with an eye on the future, we are developing new typologies, including micro living.

Master planning

We believe that no building can succeed in isolation from its site. We work with local councils, stakeholders, site users and landscape architects to create a seamless environment with a harmonious balance between built and unbuilt areas. We play a coordinating role with other architectural offices to develop complex urban projects. Frequently, increasing density in some parts of a site or structure helps us to create open, green spaces elsewhere. Modulating a building as a sequence of public, semi-public, and private spaces helps us to integrate it into the local fabric. Improving the quality and experience of a total space contributes to shaping the way people move and influences their enjoyment of life and work.

Interior design

From high-impact retail experiences to a logistically complex major station, our interiors reflect our philosophy of functional practicality and pleasurable use. The fluid relationship between interior and exterior is central to our work. Ideally, we develop the interior of a building at the same time as the exterior. This ensures a seamlessness between the two that increases the value of both. Consulting stakeholders and users allows us to devise interiors that respond to actual needs and offer the most pleasant experience possible, whether in a hospital, a mall or an office. Our flexible workplace modules accommodate changing patterns of office use. They illustrate our belief that interiors should be easy to change. Ours can be quickly modified, or removed to leave a blank canvas, as their use changes.

Product design

We adopt the same innovative, integrated design approach to our product design as we do to entire buildings. Our custom pieces for interiors fit perfectly into their context and with their intended users. Some of them acquire an independent life as furniture products. Our in-house technical skills and network of external experts endow us with the knowledge to develop the unique elements and advanced façade systems that give our buildings and interiors an individual stamp. Our carefully executed detailing is important is transforming commonplace materials and features into attractive eye-catchers.
