Matt Coffey Receives

Island Vision Fellowship

Matt Coffey, an associate at Breese Architects in Vineyard Haven, has received a Martha’s Vineyard Vision fellowship.

Mr. Coffey has been with the firm for six years. He has become increasingly interested in green building and sustainable design, educating himself and others in the firm.

The goal of the fellowship program is to encourage a healthy and vibrant Vineyard future by investing in promising individuals who demonstrate a commitment to the Island and the ideals of sustainability.

As a fellow, he plans to pursue his certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (known as LEED) and to participate in a series of workshops and conferences. He plans to work on a strategy for an affordable housing program at Breese Architects and to explore ways to promote sustainable design on the Island.
