About the Company:

Established in 1974, MVE & Partners (MVE) is one of the country’s most innovative and respected design and planning firms encompassing a 100-person team of architects, designers, planners, programmers, and technical specialists.  We provide professional architecture, planning, interior, and graphic design services to developers, cities, public agencies, and organizations, having established a reputation based on quality, creativity and the ability to deliver successful projects.  MVE specializes in the design and planning of a diverse range of developments including Residential, Mixed-Use, Commercial, Civic/Public, Retail, Institutional, Hospitality, Recreation, Cultural and Performing Arts, and Transit-Oriented Developments.

MVE & Partners approaches each project with a fresh perspective and design process which results in appropriate solutions for each of these important factors.  While many architects bring a "brand" or style of architecture which identifies them with each building they design, we have chosen to be far more versatile in our approach.  Our design philosophy will always be to compliment and improve the communities in which we design, and to create inspiring sustainable environments that people enjoy.

MVE & Partners has remained on the leading edge of design for nearly four decades as a result of our quality service, design creativity, technical expertise, and depth of experience.
