A communications agency focused on architecture, design, and our built environment. 



Based between Lisbon, PT and the Hudson Valley, NY, Mae Office was founded out of a desire to work flexibly and intuitively and a belief that architecture and design can positively impact our society. Using our experiences in architecture, brand strategy, and public relations, combined with a global network of journalists, photographers, film-makers, and graphic designers, we aim to create insightful and inspiring narratives for our clients and help communicate their work to the wider professional audience and general public.



Our services include written and visual content, curation, media relations, social media, public relations strategy, events, and story development.
