MAAT investigates the physical and virtual interactions that shape how we live together. We believe that is possible to innovate and assist the shift our society demands using design tools, shared strategies and an integrative approach.


We work in the domains of architecture and design. However, what defines MAAT is the space in-between these disciplines: a territory for radical explorations and research.

Our approach to architecture starts with great awareness of the identity of places. The uniqueness of the site helps us to navigate through the complexity and diversity of the project. Be it a building, landscape, the design of urban spaces or an installation.

The name Maat identifies the idea of harmony and balance between elements.

“For the ancient Egyptians, exactitude was symbolized by a feather that served as a weight on scales used for the weighing of souls. This light feather was called Maat, goddess of the scales. The hieroglyph for Maat also stood for a unit of length—the 33 centimeters of the standard brick—and for the fundamental note of the flute.”
Italo Calvino, ‘Exactitude’ in Six Memos for the Next Millennium (Milano, 1988)
