Miró Rivera Architects views each project as a unique undertaking. Each work results from careful consideration of the particular requirements of the client, site and program. Woven into Miró Rivera’s diverse practice is a remarkable degree of craftsmanship, exacting proportions and a refined sense of materials and details which, though surely modern, demonstrate a respect for time-honored building traditions. A consistent emphasis on natural light, transparency, and clear architectural progressions build strong connections between interior and exterior. MRA’s designs bring clarity and restraint to a range of projects in which a very clear idea permeates the work, unifying and grounding it firmly in a sense of place.
The firm currently consists of 13 people, including three design principals, Juan Miró, FAIA, Miguel Rivera, FAIA, and Ken Jones, AIA. MRA offers a wide range of architectural services including: urban design; institutional, commercial, and residential architecture; and interior design.
MRA also maintains a commitment to sustainable building practices: its sustainable projects include LifeWorks (5 Stars, Austin Energy Green Building), the West Ridge Residence (5 Stars, Austin Energy Green Building), and the Spicewood Residence (3 Stars, Austin Energy Green Building).
