2017 Houses Awards: Emerging Architecture Practice

Emerging Architecture Practice ME 2017 Houses Awards

Jury comment

Established in 2013 by architect Matthew Eagle, ME is a practice that is pushing boundaries and reconsidering the suburban status quo on the Gold Coast.

ME’s growing suite of sensitively contextual residential projects embraces the coastal way of life and climate. The practice delightfully engages with the beachside vernacular and celebrates ordinary materials and products to create contemporary homes that are playful, liveable and affordable.

ME’s residential work not only aims to enhance the daily lives of each home’s occupants, it also strives to give back to the relevant neighbourhood character.

For Matthew, research is an important aspect to design and alongside running his practice, he is an assistant professor at the Abedian School of Architecture at Bond University on the Gold Coast.

Is it clear that, along with his clients and consultants, Matthew Eagle is making his mark on the Gold Coast with considered, cost-effective and climatically responsive residential architecture.
