Matthew Hall Joins The Studio


After close to a decade of Matt Hall closely collaborating with Hansjörg Göritz on a variety of endeavors, joining the Studio as a design director appears a logical move. His upbringing predestines him for working with us in a key position. With countless moves in a military family to suburban no-places and sterile outposts ingrained spare aesthetics and utilitarian nature of the banality of the spaces combined with military hardware. It lead to an infatuation with material honesty, a penchant for the minimalist and a fascination with the pragmatic. As a seasoned practitioner and educator, his interest in meaningful and honest architecture breeds a fascination with bygone archetypes, the machine age, and a cynical approach to the valorization of the new.
