MRTN Architects is a design focussed architecture and interior design studio founded by Antony Martin and located in Melbourne. We have a reputation for our unique style and the recognisable homes that we create specifically for the families and individuals that live in them.
Award winning city, country and coastal homes that are sustainable and contemporary. Experienced in designing to local council requirements, including BAL and bushfire prone areas, we are also recognised for our sensitive response to projects situated within a heritage overlay.
Our projects, regardless of scale or type, have in common a considered design approach that results in buildings that use materials wisely and are correctly oriented, sized and proportioned.
Our approach to design is not prescriptive one, we enjoy getting to know our clients and working with them to arrive at an outcome together. This process should satisfy what is required of the brief and the desires for the project but also create something unexpected and wonderful.
Creating enduring spaces and forming enduring relationships.
Winner of an ARCHITECTURE AWARD for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) in the Victorian Architecture Awards for The Good Life House
“This house is carefully considered by the architect on so many levels – a delight in every aspect from larger urban considerations to the deep understanding of detail and materiality.”
Winner of the JOHN AND PHYLLIS MURPHY AWARD for Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions) in the Victorian Architecture Awards for Frankston Mid Century Modern
“Frankston Mid-Century Modern with its appearance of minimal intervention, belies the extensive rework that has in fact been done. MRTN Architects have shown great mastery in the refinishing and reinterpretation of the existing home, with the alterations allowing the original design to take the lead.”
“Antony designs spaces that are beautiful to live in and also manages every stage so well that the whole design and build process is a pleasure to be part of. We’re still amazed at how well the spaces in our house work. Every room and all the in-between spaces link perfectly, and somehow have outlooks and sky and tree views that hardly seem possible in the middle of the city. I have absolute confidence in his judgement and skill at arriving at wonderful outcomes. He even manages to do this while remembering the budget we need to work to.”
