Our Process

This is not about us. It’s about you.
It’s about how you’ll feel living and working inside one of our designs, passing by as a member of the surrounding community, or seeing it a century from now. All of these are paramount to our work.
MGLM’s founders personally guide each project from daydream to culmination. We act as partners, confidants, and guides to our clients, giving physical form to their unique needs and desires. Trust is the road by which a project reaches its most beautiful form, and through collaboration and open communication, our clients’ goals are integrated thoughtfully into the earliest stages of design. Relationships are everything to us, and the many clients whom we now count as friends is a point of pride and satisfaction.

Before putting pencil to paper, we immerse ourselves in an extensive research process to arrive at the perfect solution. Great architecture cannot be achieved in a vacuum, and one size does not fit all. We assume leadership of the project and its participants—from contractors to interior designers—ensuring diligent adherence to a set timeline, budget, and design. No detail is too small for our devotion, from the installation of a beautiful and long-lasting roofing system to the discovery of the perfect antique decorative tile.

Our architects possess a deep knowledge of environmentally responsible architectural solutions and the many paths to sustainability, including LEED certification. Finally, believing that architecture manifests a beauty that should be experienced by all, we strive to give our talents back to communities with fewer resources that would benefit from meaningful designs.
