At studio MLA architects, we strive to create buildings and landscapes that fully support our client’s needs. From our offices in Brookline Massachusetts we have assisted clients in developing architectural solutions to building challenges from Tokyo to London and Toronto to Bangalore. We are experienced in sophisticate design collaboration and are comfortable working with complex projects and aggressive schedules.
Our goal is always to enhance functionality and environmental quality by working with clients toward a shared philosophy regarding their needs. We maintain a strong working knowledge of codes, regulations, and standards especially in our areas of project specialization. Our strong partnerships with clients enable us to develop environments that meet their needs and incorporate unique elements of each organization’s culture.
At studio MLA architects we receive constant feedback from many of our committed clients, and therefore are continually evolving our design criteria to reflect the “best practices”. Our commitment to educational work included conducting Harvard University’s annual Institute for Child Care Design for seven years in collaboration with Jim Greenman and an ongoing collaboration with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) to produce guidebooks and seminars related to design and early care and education.
studio MLA architects provides ongoing support by helping clients understand regulatory and cost issues, by helping them to communicate effectively with internal and external team members in the construction and design fields, and by finding creative ways to address their facility challenges.
