Discover what Martin believes every residential property should have in our latest series of The Scoop!

MB: How would you describe your personal aesthetic? 

NM: Timeless, clean, forward-thinking design that allows architecture to be intimate and personal while ringing dynamic and unique. 

MB: What do you believe is "that thing" about your work that attracts clients? 

NM: "That thing" for Martin Architects is that intangible but overwhelmingly clear sense one gets when experiencing one of our spaces: that of conviction, quality of space and materials that mix with the chemistry of the client and the environment.

MB: What can your clients always expect from you when executing projects? 

NM: Our clients can expect an unexpected solution that will energize and solidify the entire project, creating a language of its own all with a long-earned experience of green building practices. Martin Architect's clients expect a great design for their property, a venue for an enhanced quality of life that elegantly fulfills their needs and desires. Our contracting company, 4MA Builders, efficiently and accurately ushers the design ideas of the firm into a well-crafted form. 

MB: What do you believe every residential property should have? 

NM: Every residential property should be designed to respond to its naturally existing conditions — its natural light and topography — and the vernacular sought. The plan should provide a balance between intimate and generous spaces in accordance with the lifestyle of the owner. We are particularly interested in creating careful and intimate relationships between the interior and exterior spaces.
