About Us  
Our Process  

Great design is born as result of marrying ideas, program and art. Like music, architecture when properly composed, tells a story. Each key is designed to strike major and minor chords at just the right moment creating harmony and melody to produce a masterpiece. And like music, architecture is emotive. It is a living and breathing composition that inspires and connects us to our past, shares our present and announces our future. It is the sonnet of our story.

From breathtaking views to serene spaces that evoke tranquility, each story is as unique as the client it reflects. At DMA our process to design your song begins with a Needs and Options review. We take a holistic and collaborative approach taking into account the opportunities and limitations of your site; your desires and your budget. From breathtaking views to serene spaces that evoke tranquility, each story is as unique as the client it reflects.

About Us Image 2
Our Technology  

From our inception, we use computer aided technology to tell your story. By using both AutoCAD and Building Information Modeling (B.I.M.) early in the design process, we provide real-time visualization as well as clash detection among the design disciplines ensuring a cohesive project.
Our Design Philosophy  

Just as fashion seeks to elevate the person without consuming their individuality, so architecture seeks to restore the soul. Like the great sculptors of the renaissance who believed that hidden in material, art and soul were waiting to be revealed, we believe that intrinsic to design is the ability to see what is there and what can be. Whether a blank canvas, plot of land or an existing property that needs to be rejuvenated, we begin with a question. The question of what is your story and purpose?

Understanding our client's story releases a wealth of knowledge, ideas and artistic expression where comprehensive, purposeful design solutions are born. It is this story waiting to be told where we find our uniqueness that defines who we are, identifies and attracts others to us. Here is where we are revealed and others are invited to partake and weaved into the fabric of our story. Like a cape that adorns the mannequin, the purpose of architecture and design is to adorn the soul and elev
Project Image 1 Rebranding | Interior Design of People of Faith Luthern Church  

DMA was commissioned to provide commercial interior design services for a church in Windermere, FL consisting of reception entryway and sanctuary. The church needed assistance in telling their story and showcasing their identity. The church's theme was "Making Sunday's Great". By creating an experience map and associated zones DMA successfully showcased and rebranded the churches story resulting in a aesthetically pleasing and cohesive design.

- $10.00 to $15.00 per square foot (design cost only)
- 8.00 to 15.00 percent of construction cost
In our contracts we offer a basic design fee usually based upon a percentage of construction cost. We take an initial payment of 20% of our fee upon signing of contract. Because we use B.I.M as as part of our design process, our fee are based on the following stages of design.

Bathroom Designers - Residential

We use a holistic approach to design. Our billing is based on the complexity of the project and time to execute design.

We generally do not bill by the square foot (fixed fee) unless the scope is clearly defined previously.

We offer a blended fee. If the scope of work is undefined we billed hourly to assist our clients in preprograming and schematic design. Once a scope is settled we can offer a fixed fee based on a range of estimated percentage of construction on building type. We then go back to an hourly fee for construction administration.

Our fees are tailored to the Client's Scope of Work. We have found that one size does not fit all.

Subject: Recommendation

It is my pleasure to provide a letter of recommendation for Daniel Martinez. Mr. Martinez provided pro-bono architectural and master planning services in conjunction with his pursuit and completion of master level thesis program. The scope of this project included a feasibility study and master plan of a ninety three acre site. The master plan included campus based site design featuring mixed-use facilities for K-12 school; library; on grade and structured parking; dormitories and pastoral staff housing; retail shops and banquet halls and 10,000 seat mega-church building with offices. The master plan was arranged around a retention lake which was also used for the campus wide HVAC system. His design approach utilized sustainable principles and materials.

Mr. Martinez prepared pre-design services which included a demographic study as well as space programming. The schematic and design development primarily focused on the mega-church and facilities.

To whom it may concern,

This is to inform you that Daniel Martinez worked with me on a Hotel project in Napa Valley in 2008. Although he did not receive much direction from us, Daniel embraced the challenge.
