About Us

MTA Urban Design Architecture Interior Design Inc., is an integrated design firm that offers Architectural, Interior Design and Urban Design services. MTA works as one office from two locations: Calgary and Edmonton. Our clients can draw upon a diverse portfolio of work spanning 30-plus years, originating from predecessor firm’s CMA and M+A, leading to the creation of Marshall Tittemore Architects in 2002 now recognized as MTA. This legacy was built on a loyal following from repeat clients who support our dedicated teaming and creative enthusiasm. The new leadership team balances creativity and imagination with in-depth expertise to create spaces and places that impact social, political and sustainable change through the built environment and promote joyful living.

MTA is accomplished in a range of project sectors with a principle focus on Hospitality, Residential (Market and Non-Market Housing), Senior Living and working with not for profit organizations. We have a proven track record working in urban, rural and unique settings, whether it be the Provincial and National Parks, Indigenous Lands or the Urban Districts of Calgary and Edmonton respectively.  We also proudly maintain successful partnerships with selected national and international architectural practices to deliver award-winning, world-class projects.

MTA approaches each project as a partnership and a relationship with our client and with our community. Thoughtful, creative design can solve complex challenges while respecting budgets and deadlines. Inspired thinking can advance the evolution of design and shape how we see the city and our surroundings.

We are curious; we connect ideas in meaningful ways; we are detail oriented; and we deliver distinctive and captivating projects that transform places through design. At every stage, we engage in dialogue with our clients while being ever mindful of business, economic and performance goals.
