Urbs | latin for city| is a small architecture, design and research based studio. Matt and Alyson Beaton are a husband and wife team of unapologetic urbanists. Our work is all about people and how we as citizens instinctively create communities within larger cities. We know that it is our neighborhoods are the urban fabric that makes Austin great. Over the past 20 years we have worked, lived in and studied urban spaces. We strive to understand how our communities have evolved and philosophically represent who we are as citizens within them. We have come to understand how the smallest businesses and individuals shape places making them unique and special.
