The Studio of Mathias Koester Architects is driven by innovative and sustainable architecture.
We care for exceptional detailing and a strong consideration of the projects settings -
creating joyful spaces that are uplifting and inspiring to use.
Combining our passion for travel, cultures and architecture we design houses and hospitality projects worldwide
with a focus on the Caribbean and Mediterranean Islands.
Founded in London in 2007 we established a second studio base in Palma de Mallorca in 2017
and regularly visit Germany (Hamburg) and the Caribbean (Saint Lucia) as well.
So please come and visit us for a coffee, tea or sangria (if you insist...)
in the greatest city of the world - or the most beautiful island.

We believe that the build environment has a direct influence on the quality of our lives and set out to create joyful spaces that are uplifting and inspiring to use.
We aim to create bright spaces flooded with natural light.
The play of light and shadow is key to bring our architecture alive and the use of warm materials and vegetation often enhances the users’ experience and well-being.
Our design approach follows closely the concept of legibility, in which every element of the design is expressive of its function and as such contributes to the overall aesthetics of the building.
The use of clear lines and selected elements of design achieve buildings and interiors of great elegance.
Sustainability and the analysis of the specific site conditions are at the heart of our design and often define the very concept of our buildings. This involves careful consideration for the climatic conditions such as sun, temperature, wind, rain and snow etc. as much as the optimization of views, natural daylight and use of renewable energy resources available on site.
Our designs are based on a detailed understanding of the functions they must fulfill and we promote the idea of flexibility as a means to ensure that a building can adopt to changes in the original brief and function over time.
We combine the use of up-to-date technology with traditional and cultural related building methods according to the specific project requirements and its location.
