MGAO engage with the tradition of Architecture, generating expression through the realities of construction.

Drawing inspiration from existing conditions, surrounding site contexts, building typologies and common construction techniques, MGAO aim to design projects which respond sensitively to their specific environments.

MGAO work with a refined set of tools; Materiality, Proportion, Prospect and Light, these tools enable MGAO to respond creatively to any brief whilst promoting the importance of quality over quantity and timelessness over trend.

At MGAO, we work collaboratively with our clients, using our unique architectural approach to flesh out and frame our client’s specific brief and ambitions, whether they are personal, social, environmental or material.

We begin each project with an initial Schematic process, which together with our client’s involvement enables us to explore the hopes and aspirations of each individual project, establishing the complexities of the specific site and developing initial design responses to the brief.
