About Us

Melanie founded her design studio in 2012 with a passion for transforming spaces and homes. By bridging the disciplines of architecture and interior design, Atelier MW provides clients with a streamlined, design-led and architecturally focused service. All aspects of architecture, interior design and bespoke furniture design are integrated in-house, resulting in an efficient and cohesive design output.

A limited number of commissions are taken on each year, allowing Melanie to personally oversee all projects. She benefits from the expertise of a team of experienced and specialist consultants and craftsmen to deliver each project and draws on several years of professional experience in architectural practice, as well as her formal architectural training at the prestigious Royal College of Art, to bring exceptional creativity and a distinctive design edge to all projects, whatever their size and ambition.

The studio's approach is collaborative and highly personalized. We work closely with our clients to conceive and deliver projects that are tailored to meet their unique aims and are responsive and reflective of context and budgets. They provide well-considered and bespoke design solutions that often exceed expectations.

Testament to this is that so many projects undertaken have been born of personal recommendations, referrals and repeat client commissions.

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"Our New York clients purchased an old property on an incredible bay-fronted plot in Southampton, New York as their weekend and vacation home when escaping the city.

We led the architectural design of the new build 6-bedroom house, including the design of custom kitchens and bathrooms, as well as providing our interior design services to fully furnish the house. The property includes a pool with an integrated hot tub set in landscaped gardens as well as multiple decked terraces over various levels to take in the views across the bay waters. The main open plan living area is a triple aspect to benefit from these views and to capture the sunsets. It is a project we are especially proud of."
