The Latest Evolution of a Design Firm

one of the oldest and largest architectural and interior design firms in the state of Louisiana with projects all over the world.

Mathes Brierre Architects of New Orleans, Louisiana, is the latest evolution of a design firm founded in 1891 by Charles A. Favrot and L.A. Livaudais. The firm has changed several times during the course of a century, but remains one of the oldest and consistently successful architectural firms in the country. The company’s present name, Mathes Brierre Architects, was adopted in 2001, under the leadership of Edward C. Mathes, AIA, Chairman, and Creed W. Brierre, FAIA (ret.). Our expertise is well grounded through the design of many building types over the years which include: music and performance arts facilities, public assembly buildings, medical facilities, corporate offices, high-rise residential buildings, and other examples of fine civic architecture. The firm continues to provide a full range of architectural services internationally from architecture and interior design to landscape architecture, master planning and construction contract administration.

    Just wanted to reach out to let you guys know... my boss's boss's boss' (Donna B, Jim Dawson, Frank Martorana) was in today from NY giving a presentation to us. He requested to see Floor 29 so I took him up there and he was very complimentary of the design and finishes. He said he liked it a lot and that it was very impressive. Of course, I gave credit where credit is due, and mentioned that the design work was done by Mathes Brierre Architects. So - here's your ‘Shout Out’.. Thank you for all the work you have done. I appreciate it.

    Dear Creed and John, On behalf of Ursuline Academy, please allow me to express my gratitude for all of your work on our auditorium project. The facility is even more beautiful than we could have imagined, and the girls are beyond thrilled with their new space. Albeit belated, we wanted to give you a small token of our appreciation. Again, many, many, thanks. Blessings,
