Matter are a product innovation consultancy based in a historic building in the centre of Bath. Originally built as a carriage works, their premises had changed use several times and was carved up into a warren of poorly connected spaces without much natural light. Architects Stonewood Design have transformed it into a more open, welcoming, flexible studio that supports, frames, and shapes how the company works.

Due to the confidential nature of their design work, Matter are not always able to showcase their projects, so the studio needs to convey their ethos and personality. The attention to detail is obsessive, joyful, and inventive – a spirit that extends from the fine metal entrance gates, through the front of house lighting and worktops, to the storage and pipework in the toilets. When you have an idea and your client just nips out back and makes it, you have a dream project.
