After unhappy experiences with other architects I found Matthew Jones very good. In particular I found them practical and down to earth and most importantly they listened to my requirements and successfully incorporated them into the design rather than telling me what to have. I’d be more than happy to recommend them to anyone needing an architect. Ian Roe

Aber Falls Visitor Centre plans unveiled

Matthew Jones Architects are excited to unveil plans for the new Aber Falls Visitor Centre, near the small village of Abergwyngregyn, just out Llanfairfechan in North Wales. The building will compliment the brand new Aber Falls Gin and Whiskey Distillery that has recently started operating in the adjacent Depot building. The visitor centre will compliment this new production facility and give visitors an insight into the distilling process. The Visitor centre will be an exciting, modern, zinc clad building that will offer its visitors an interactive experience that will include an exhibition space explaining the distilling process, an audio-visual experience, a small workshop distillery where you can distil your own Gin, and even give it your own label! There will also be opportunities for corporate events as well as a cafe to enjoy refreshments in this unique setting with Snowdonia as your backdrop. Matt Jones, director of Matthew Jones Architects said: “As local architects, we were really pleased to be commissioned by Aber Falls to work on this exciting project, which gave us a great opportunity to showcase our client’s latest brands. We wanted to create a building that will be a visually exciting and stimulating experience for its visitors, as well as placing emphasis on being accessible and environmentally responsive. He continued… “its dynamic form and pallet of materials really gives the building a durable, physical presence whilst being discrete within its stunning setting. Internally, the distillery, audio visual centre, exhibit space and cafe will create an interactive and memorable experience for its visitors.” A full planning application has been submitted to Gwynedd council on behalf of Aber... read more

A new chapter for former local library building

Matthew Jones Architects have recently unveiled exciting plans for the former library building in Llandudno Junction, which was sold recently to a local business couple in auction. Steve and Cheryl Winmill, who run a renewable business, have submitted plans to convert the redundant building in to a coffee shop. The building, which closed a few years ago, has started to fall in to a state of disrepair and serving no community benefit whatsoever. These new plans will offer the local and wider community a hub to enjoy beverages and light snacks in a modern, up to date environment. The building, built in the 1960’s, will undergo a full and comprehensive refurbishment to modernise it and bring it up to today’s building regulations standards. It will have full disabled access, WiFi, and crèche area and an external sitting area. The plans which have just been submitted to Conwy planning department will be considered over the next weeks. Matthew Jones, Director of MJA comments “this is an exciting opportunity to bring this local building back to life as it offers no visual benefit in its current state of disrepair. Our clients should be commended for investing back in to the community and giving this a building a new sustainable use for the foreseeable... read more

Plans to redevelop former Bangor Post Office on Deniol Road

Matthew Jones Architects have recently been commissioned as architects for the redevelopment of the former Bangor Post Office. The listed building which houses the Embassy nightclub on Deiniol Road, Bangor, closed last year and the building currently lies empty. The grade two listed structure originally operated as a post office but plans have now been submitted to convert the building into a mixed use building to include 29 student flats on the upper floors and a cafe/restaurant on the ground floor.  Plans for the city centre site have been drawn up and submitted for planning. Matt Jones, Director from Matthew Jones Architects said: “a building of this age and type without a ‘sustainable beneficial use’ would quickly deteriorate and be under threat” If the plans are given the go-ahead, the single-storey buildings at the back of the building will be demolished to make way for a new five-storey contemporary building providing further 151 student flats, set around a private courtyard, creating a total of 180 flats. Mr Jones said: “Our exciting proposals for the redevelopment of the old post office will introduce an appropriate beneficial use which will ensure its survival for the foreseeable future. “Our proposals will fully renovate this important listed building ensuring its continued positive impact within Bangor. “The proposal is a well thought out scheme that integrates a new build suitable building alongside the listed building, that has been sensitively designed for the site and its context. “The proposals will provide much needed sustainable use in the form of high quality student accommodation in a suitable and sustainable location adjacent the university campus in commercial area of the city... read more
