Finding Inspiration At Every Turn
MLM is committed to building long-term relationships based on integrity, performance value, and client satisfaction through our team-centered collaboration of cost-effective and innovative architectural design solutions.
Over the course of our 30 years, MLM’s success is greatly attributed to the direct involvement of the current Principals, Miguel L. Martin, AIA ("Sr.") and Miguel A. Martin, AIA, Assoc. ASHRAE ("Jr."), with our clients in the day-to-day affairs of our design projects. Father and son partners, MLM is a family-run company with incredible dedication and forethought put into each and every unique project for the success of our clients; many of whom are repeat clients.
Our firm began with Architect Miguel Lazaro Martin, AIA, working as a solo practitioner in 1981. As the practice grew, the corporate entity was formed to provide greater services with its concentration on the aviation and public sectors with the addition of two architect partners under the name of Perez & Perez/Martin, Inc. in 1992. In 1997, Miguel L. Martin, AIA bought-out the partners and became the President of the company to focus even more intensely on local Central Florida projects. The firm was then renamed MLM-Martin Architects, Inc. ("MLM") to reflect the change.
In 2017, MLM welcomed Miguel A. Martin, AIA, RID, Assoc. ASHRAE, to our 11-person firm as a Principal and Vice President of the corporation. Miguel A. greatly expanded the practice in our specialty areas: aviation services, governmental services to public clients, K-12 education, and utilities/central energy/chiller plants which he is intimately familiar having an engineering background.
MLM is passionate about Central Florida where we are deeply invested, but have also expanded our services all over the State of Florida and Out of State.
Our minority certification is a wonderful compliment to our incredibly talented and experienced team on projects both large and small.
