MA is a small flexible architectural consultancy that operates as principal designer on larger buildings by forming strategic alliances with other top professionals, forming teams of superior talent for each commission. These teams take maximum advantage of both MA’s design expertise and the critical technical and administrative knowledge offered by superior executive firms. We enjoy a productive working relationship with executive architectural firms and work as either a consultant to the executive of record, or a joint venture partner depending upon the project ,the intensity of our involvement and our relationship to the client.
MA is a consultancy at the leading edge of digital technology and design. MA is outside of office politics and a larger firms defined stylistic focus and can therefore be very effective at fostering design innovation for specific works. Very often larger firms are well organized and superb at management and delivery. MA brings the innovative energies of the top tier design shop into the mix to create high performance projects.
In working with executive firms, Mr. MontAlto is particularly careful to respect the logistics of the larger firm by traveling to their offices to interact and work on projects.
We recognize in our work with developers that a market oriented client is primarily interested in economic success measured by profit. Our architectural solutions seek to align the level of design quality and necessary amenity to capture the targeted market or to generate anticipated revenues.
Working with developers we understand their goals and limitations along with building economics. We are also well aware and committed to meeting budgets and deadlines.
In short, our goal in working with developers is to design buildings that work well, look good, and the meet the budget and the timeline.

MA's process process is straight forward:
Over the web through a short questionnaire and back and forth e mails we develop a programmatic outline for your building.
Next we take the developed program outline and assign a cost of service based upon the size and complexity of the building .
After acceptance of the fee we revisit and extend the program outline through email messaging and begin to generate ideas for your building and develop schematic ideas in 3D.
In less than a month, you are in possession of a completely unique schematic design including plans elevations and building sections along with computer generated still images, an image of the building on your site, (from a photograph you send to us), and a fly by animation of the proposed building. This information can then be used to open a dialogue with your local builder and or design professional to further the construction of your work.
