studioMLA Architects Joins Forces with Ashley McGraw Architects

We are pleased to announce that we finalized an agreement to merge our firm with Ashley McGraw Architects. Since our founding in 2006, studioMLA Architects has pursued excellence in design and has been committed to community collaboration and we are thrilled to find a partner who shares these values. As of 7/10/24, studioMLA Architects will become the Early Childhood Education studio within Ashley McGraw Architects.

About Ashley McGraw Architects

Ashley McGraw Architects traces its origins to 1981 when David Ashley founded the firm as ‘Ashley Associates.’ in Syracuse, New York. In 1993, it evolved into a partnership between David Ashley and Edward McGraw, adopting the name Ashley McGraw Architects, formally incorporated in 1998. Headquartered in Syracuse with an office in Washington, D.C., the firm has grown to nearly 70 employees consisting of licensed architects, interior designers, architectural designers, Accredited Learning Environment Planners (ALEP), and support staff. Their expertise in K-12 education, higher education, and multi-family housing is an ideal fit and in line with studioMLA Architects’ focus on early childhood education and non-profit community service providers.  

Continuity and Opportunity

As we embark on our new partnership, studioMLA Architects will continue to focus on raising the bar in terms of high-quality design for children and families and supporting a broad array of mission-driven organizations across the country.

While we will be able to provide our clients with a broader range of services and areas of expertise in the future, most things about our firm will remain constant:

  • Our committed team of architectural and landscape architectural designers will remain the same and continue to grow.
  • Our office in Brookline, MA, will continue to serve our current clients and will provide expanded services in terms of project type and scale.
  • Our commitment to quality design and client satisfaction will remain constant.

Please note: We will be transitioning to a new email address; however, you will be notified once finalized.

If you have any questions about this exciting news and what it will mean for you, please get in touch with me at any time. We are grateful to all of our clients and collaborators and we are confident that our new partnership with Ashley McGraw Architects will be extremely positive for us all!
