Mather & Co are an experienced multi -disciplinary design consultancy specialising in the design, development and installation of highly interactive and engaging museums, visitor attractions and design interiors. Our work ranges from initial master-planning and design feasibility through to concept scheme, detailed design and build.

Our company has been trading from the UK since 1995, and we have gained a fantastic reputation in the development of museum and heritage based projects. Our extensive portfolio includes Revealing York Minster, Archives+ at Manchester Central Library, The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, the National Football Museum, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, National Horseracing Museum.

We are a unique company in that we also offer a wealth of experience in delivery, project management, cost control, operations and realising commercial opportunities. Our designs are practical and effective because a number of our team have operated heritage buildings, museums and attractions, and we are familiar with brand work and secondary spend opportunities. Mather & Co are a friendly, creative and flexible studio with a strong team- work approach. We like to listen to our clients and work with them to create truly innovative solutions and internationally-recognised spaces.

We look to bring experiential design to any project we work on – whether it’s in the heritage, leisure, retail or hospitality sectors. By placing ourselves in the visitor’s shoes, we create designs that are relevant and appropriate with an added sense of theatre to give the real ‘wow’ factor.
