We have developed a clear and simple process for the delivery of projects. That process is founded on building a strong relationship with the client, in which frank and honest discussions about their expectations and ambitions for the project occur in parallel to a rigorous analysis of project data such as the budget, program, schedule, and site.

We Design Together

MHA believes architecture is fundamentally collaborative. We start each of
our projects by designing tailored engagement campaigns that empower you and your stakeholders to communicate your needs and priorities.Together, we discover how your project can advance your institutional mission and open new opportunities. We encourage feedback and new ideas every step of the way, ultimately delivering a building that brings value to you and the communities you serve.

We Make Places for Learning

MHA focuses on designing schools and university buildings. We are dedicated to creating spaces that foster new ways of learning and support forward-looking pedagogical approaches. We are experts at navigating the complexities of delivering school and university projects, developing strategic phasing plans to minimize disruption to the academic year, building consensus among diverse groups of stakeholders, and maximizing value within strict institutional budgets.

We Create Healthy, Sustainable Buildings

Having trained and practiced in the UK and Germany, Martin Hopp brings
the forward-looking sustainability, healthy building, and circular construction approaches pioneered in Europe to new contexts. MHA is one of the first firms to use cross-laminated timber as an alternative to steel or concrete structures in New York and has delivered award-winning projects based on improving environmental quality and user experience.
