Mathias Brockdorff, founder of MDB Works, has a strong passion and commitment to deliver true impact in design and architecture.
Mathias is an upcoming architect whose refined and holistic approach to architecture, interiors and design combines his Scandinavian heritage with a modern simplistic design language.
As the founder and creative director of MDB Works, Mathias has completed a small yet strong portfolio, nationally ranging within residential architecture. His aim is to set a new design benchmark, melding elegant craft and comfort with a strong contextual anchor in time and place.
Mathias’ practice is grounded upon enduring Scandinavian values of honesty and humanism with a particular emphasis on materiality. A central tenet is a concern for how people feel. By taking a holistic approach to each aspect of a project Mathias creates spaces where people are comfortable and embraced by their surroundings. Pivotal to this, is a deep understanding of how a space will be used or lived in. Designing that space from the inside out, Mathias considers light, color, form and materials as key architectural elements.
Describing his style as ‘modern simplicity’, Mathias creates pared-back architecture that feel current but will stand the test of time. This requires meticulous attention to detail, curiosity and ambition. Using diverse materials in an honest and thoughtful way is central as is functionality and tactility.
