Founded in 2001 by Marie Moignot and Xavier De Wil, MDW Architecture is now strong of 30 staff. Our ethos is to combine the highest standards of creativity and sustainability.

We are committed to offering design excellence to each client, either public or private and independently of the scale of the project. Each request is looked into thoroughly so that the solution reaches beyond the brief. The freshness of our approach has been recognised by several awards.

Building on many years of experience in low-energy and passive projects of the highest standards in terms of energy efficiency and sustainable construction, we now integrate these principles in our schemes as naturally as structural engineering.

We see our relationship with our clients as a partnership, a continuous dialogue where everyone brings something to the other. Our interest in dialogue is also incarnated in the way our projects weave relations with their context and their occupants. We enjoy
managing wide and complex projects that require an enriching multidisciplinarity and where the architect acts as a conductor, whose global vision can guarantee the rightness of the music.
