New Hire: Matthew Bethel


Very excited to announce the addition of yet another talented new team member here at Architect One! We are very pleased to introduce our newest Associate Project Manager, Matthew Bethel!

Matthew's professional experience includes judicial and law enforcement facilities, commercial design-build projects, educational facilities, and single and multi-family housing projects. He has a Master of Architecture degree from The University of Kansas, an Associate of Arts degree from Johnson County Community College. Matthew experienced college sports a walk-on for the Washburn University football team while a student there!

In addition, his roots in Topeka run deep! Matthew graduated from Washburn Rural High School, has a three-year-old daughter that's an avid tricycle rider and who he enjoys nature with, and he loves playing 90s alternative covers on guitar at local open-mics! He is active as a boxer, likes working out, and stays handy with carpentry and home remodeling. He's also a big supporter of local mom-and-pop restaurants like Juli's Coffee and Bistro, The Pennant Topeka, and Tuptim Thai Restaurant, with most of his diet revolving around whole, plant-based foods.

Having been drawn back to Topeka by his family, Matthew is excited that more and more young, educated professionals are moving back to the Capital City after they graduated! His hope is this will drive a more vibrant & exciting live music scene!

With his Topeka ties, active lifestyle, desire to be creative, and eagerness to support locally, we couldn't be prouder to have Matthew with us here at Architect One! Please join us in welcoming him back to Topeka and to our team at AO!
