Matthew Springett established himself as a sole practitioner in 1998 following a number of private commissions in London and Ireland.
A graduate of the Bartlett School of Architecture, he was awarded University College London's Banister Fletcher medal and won the RIBA Silver Medal in 1998. After working with Chris Wilkinson Architects and Studio 8 Architects, he formed Springett Mackay Architecture in 2001 with Kirsteen Mackay. The practice has built numerous residential and commercial projects.
Springett maintains an involvement in education, which he believes is fundamental to both his and the practice's attitude in challenging design conventions. He is a design tutor at the Bartlett.
