Mathews Architecture serves the people and communities in the Appalachian region of Western North Carolina, Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee, and Upstate South Carolina.

Civic, Educational & Nonprofit Projects

Our projects have ranged from new recreation centers, to renovated and expanded cultural facilities, to ADA compliance upfits for summer camp cabins.

Single and Multi-Family Residences

Our experience ranges from a mountaintop aerie for a collector of African art, to small-scale in-fill developments based on the Not-So-Big-House approach, to award-winning historic restorations.

Downtown Revitalization & Commercial Development

Downtowns are the vital centers of our communities. Renovating and re-using the old storefronts and offices breathes new life into the area and jumpstarts the local economy.

Parks, Recreation & Greenways

Whether it's Asheville's riverfront, the North Carolina Arboretum, large state parks or small neighborhood pocket parks, we've been working with neighborhoods and municipal governments for more than 25 years to help dreams become real.

History & Historic Preservation

Historic house museums, historically compatible additions, restoration tax credit projects, and heritage trails and markers are just a handful of our efforts to preserve and honor our regional heritage.

Interior Renovation & Design

Some times it just takes a special eye to transform a kitchen, or devise a plan for an unfinished basement, or point out the best finishes and accessories for a bathroom renovation.

ADA, Zoning and Building Code Compliance

As the legal requirements for private and public projects have grown more complex, we have helped our clients navigate to the successful conclusions of their projects with as few delays as possible.

Giving Back

Everyone at our firm has a strong and active commitment to the community, whether it's through serving on boards and commissions, volunteering for special projects or doing pro bono work for local nonprofits.
