Who we are

matterlab is a product and innovation lab of technology experts, software developers, designers and entrepreneurs, dedicated to improving the built environment. 

We’re a company that bridge the gap between the worlds of computer programming and traditional architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) practices. It’s an exciting time for us - even though we’re a start-up, we’re at the forefront of what we do and there’s a lot of demand for our work. As a result, we’re growing quickly. We already partner with some of the biggest companies in the AEC industry, helping them to spearhead new technologies and find better ways of working.  

As direct result of our client consulting work at matterlab, our product KOPE was developed out of necessity to solve some of the industry’s biggest problems, with huge client and investor support, closing a pre-seed funding round of £2.1m. This round involved a selection of high-profile investors, including executives at Halkin Private Capital, Goldman Sachs, Freshstream, Enscape, ilke Homes and Recast, in addition to international corporate investors Addnode Group and Barton Malow Ventures. 

We build our own cloud, web & generative design apps, as well as helping partners build their own. Our team is diverse and are experts in the field, with Computational Designers, Architects and Software Engineers.
