The site is to the building as the building is to its occupants. We recognize the relationship between interior spaces and the natural setting to be one of the crucial components affecting the quality of living space.

There are many factors that go into site planning: sunlight, view, slope, vegetation, means of access, soil conditions, drainage, and utilities. At MLA these are all incorporated into the design process from the beginning.  Our sensitivity to exterior space defines the context in which our projects are experienced.

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."
