With a focus on multi-residential building design, Matt’s expertise bridges across small-scale urban infill, mid-rise, and multi-phased high-rise development. His leadership is pivotal in addressing the complex challenges of residential design, ranging from supportive housing and affordable housing to rental properties, market properties, and high-end condo developments.

Licensed as an Architect with the Ontario Association of Architects and certified as a Passive House Designer, Matt’s passion lies in leveraging innovative techniques such as mass timber, DFMA panelization, modular construction, and high-performance design to create sustainable and functional built forms. His commitment to socially responsible architecture is evident through his diverse portfolio of impactful projects, including CLT (cross-laminated timber) affordable housing developments, rapid housing initiatives for supportive services, and mixed-use adaptive reuse projects.

In addition to his role at mcCallumSather, Matt contributes to the academic community as a lecturer and adjunct professor at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture.
