We are Architects and Exhibition Designers. ZMMA specialises in Museums, Galleries and mixed-use Arts projects. Our experience encompasses many new-builds and transformations of important historic sites and buildings.

Our projects include learning spaces, studios, workshops, restaurants, hotels, offices, retail and residential buildings.

We have worked with an astonishing range of museum and art collections and we are focussed on making richly atmospheric places and displays for visitors’ enjoyment of art and artefacts.

ZMMA supports Clients right from the pre-funding strategic briefing stages, through consultations and funding applications to developing the design, build, fit-out and object installation.

We are particularly interested in the crafted, material quality of buildings and interiors, and in the ingenious, lively manipulation of light and space to create animated, engaging places.

At ZMMA we explore modern design ideas to exploit each project's potential, and our fresh, inventive approach, combined with over 25 years’ practice experience, results in designs which always exceed Client expectations.

Our Clients range from national museums, charitable trusts, through local authorities and community organisations, to educational bodies, commercial organisations and individuals.

We enjoy involving our clients in the design process through clear visualisations, images and models to promote discussions about ideas and opportunities. We always guide our Clients through all stages of the process to help with decision-making and project-planning. We enjoy collaborating and our design team is always accessible, responsive and energetic.
