We are passionate about design and are known for our high level of client service, expertise and our professional, friendly approach. For this reason, we commonly work at the high end of both the private client and the commercial market.

Working with us

We adapt our services and design style to suit the client context and design collaborators, but always try to maintain the high standards and attention to detail for which we are known.

For our private clients

MWAI will demystify and organize the appointment of a project team. We provide clients with a flexible, tailored service and advice. We regularly take projects from start to finish and are often asked to provide interior design or project management on top of the normal architects’ services.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) provide a framework for the staged completion of any project, catering from small extensions to large buildings. We work to these key stages but adapted for simpler projects. There is clear simple guidance on the appointment of an architect published on the RIBA website We would encourage you to review this. If you have any queries, we would be more than happy to talk it though with you and provide a no-obligation quote for our services.

For our business clients

We regularly support businesses or brands in the delivery of projects. We are adept at tailoring our design services to suit our clients, and pride ourselves on delivering projects on time and on budget. We are team players and often work with specialist Interior Designers and Project Managers. Our services are linked to the RIBA plan of work 2020.
