Matthew S. McDonald, AIA, Principal

4948 St Elmo Ave., Suite 304

Bethesda MD



Matt McDonald is excited to be among those leading the charge of new, young architecture firms energizing the D.C. design and construction industry. Along with fellow principal Jennifer Verbeke, architect Allyson Price and associate Heather Summers, all under 40, there’s a combined 50+ years of experience. The architectural diversity in and around D.C., from Colonial to Modern styles, brings challenges that are fun for the MCDStudio team, which excels at interesting design solutions.

Working collaboratively, and with high-tech tools that allow clients to better see outcomes in virtual reality, the team practices intimate customer service with a wide variety of clients and projects.

“We set aside ego and help turn our clients’ goals and visions into reality with our guidance, expertise and creative thinking,” says McDonald. “We present fresh ideas, and love when a client says, “That’s exactly what we needed, but never thought of doing it in that way.”
