The 21st century home should be an integrated whole that respects a number of criteria such as spatial quality, energy efficiency, intelligent use of resources, and awareness of site and environmental conditions.


Over the last several years MLA has been developing a series of integrated green small houses to include active and passive solar design, pre-fabricated / modular construction techniques, geo-thermal energy, “cool” roofing and siding solutions, water management and conservation, adaptive foundations, and carefully detailed building envelopes.



WHAT PEOPLE SAY:  "We had a great experience working with Michael Lewis and his team on the first phase of our renovation project and will work with them again on the second half, too. Michael created a beautiful design for our bedroom-addition that corrected a decades-old renovation and produced an end result that fits seamlessly into the original Dutch Colonial style. We really appreciated the time that he and the team took to understand our goals and work with us in shaping the design. And their assistance in selecting a contractor and managing the renovation process has been invaluable. We highly recommend the firm."
