"Matthew and Kirsten led us through a thoughtful creative process that took advantage of the natural assets of the space in order to elevate our work. While they started from a premise focused on how we worked, they sought to infuse a sense of whimsy and play aligned with our values, drawing on a formidable network of sources for locally manufactured and sustainable materials. They are wonderful collaborators, their results reap benefits to many more people beyond the life of the project"

"mcdc invested the time to understand our workflows, our brand and our culture, while still able to move at our rapid pace. It was a delight to see our physical space design unfold with such alignment to the energy we knew to be core to The Flatiron School."
David Bragdon, ED
“MCDC worked closely with us to develop a concept that was distinctive for our tastes and intended uses of the space. They took the time to query us in depth about what we wanted to do and how we wanted to feel in our office, then gave us various options responsive to our desires. While MCDC are the design experts, it felt like a co-creation. Once MCDC developed the vision, they executed with painstaking attention to every little feature of the job."
Ayah Bdeir, CEO
"Thanks to Matthew and his team, the new littleBits HQ is a real home! From the layout to the hand selected furniture to the lighting and beyond, Matthew put love and care into each detail. They worked with a lot of passion and many long nights to give us an epic unveiling. We love showing off our new space!"
Jordyn Lexton, CEO
“I write this sitting inside the new, thoughtfully designed, well-lit, interactive Center for Social Innovation located inside the impressive Starrett-Lehigh building in Chelsea. Creativity oozes from the walls in the form of quotes from global leaders in bold fonts, communal workspaces, exposed light fixtures, big bright windows and shared kitchens. The space breathes innovation into the minds of the people and companies that inhabit it. The space is a reflection of our greatest ambition.”
Avi Floubaum, Dean
"I think mcdc did a great job. The space is an integral part in our ability to deliver the transformational education experience for our students. It's awesome work."
Eli Malinksy, ED
"Matthew's work truly exceeded our expectations. He helped us turn a blank canvas into one of the most beautiful co-working spaces in New York City. More importantly, our space is a reflection of our brand, our story and our city. Matthew's design has been instrumental in our success."
Mik Moore, Principal
"I have worked in offices that I was embarrassed to show to clients, vendors, even family. In my current workspace, designed by MCDC, I give tours to my visitors several times a week. It is a tremendous asset and an extension of my digital campaign communications firm's brand. I sell my creativity; I am grateful that my workplace design showcases that same asset, in abundance."
Mark Monchek, Founder
"Whenever I take someone on a tour of CSI NYC, I watch their eyes as they widen and light up in delight and wonder. When they learn the guiding principles of the space design Matthew used - locally sourced materials; re-purposed artifacts, environmentally conscious custom design, all executed in order to inspire collaboration and community - they go into a deeper experience of awe which never fails to lead to an engaging dialogue."

"The space makes me feel like I'm in a kindergarten for code."
