Melville Thomas Architects


01 About MTA

We are a husband and wife team of skilled architects who use good design and quality management to produce residential projects for clients with discerning taste . . . and clients who are willing to strive for good architecture.

Our clients understand that there is a difference between a good plan and a good house.


Our clients are willing to explore the interesting nuances of a design that is driven not only by their program but also the site and its views, from the inside out and the outside in.

Our clients want something a little bit different and are willing to embrace "quirky" elements that make a house special. Elements that come from the rough edges of a site or a program or a function or a regulation. We look for opportunities to celebrate the surprises that these elements create.


Our clients understand that there is a cost to doing something good and that "cheap" is rarely inexpensive.


Our clients engage us and push us and ask us really good questions. And they are awarded with a better design for asking us to listen. That said our clients listen to us and respect our professional opinion.

As a small firm we strive for the seamless integration of design and implementation.
