Miguel Barbosa + Associates | Architects

Miguel Barbosa Architects: Design Excellence and Green Innovation. It’s an innovative architecture and urban design office.

 It has accomplished architectural works with extensive experience in the arts, campus, and educational facilities, and residential work. Other projects include retail design, office design, public utilities, and master planning. With each project, the firm explores new ways to integrate an organized idea with the programmatic and functional essence of the building.  Rather than imposing a style upon different sites and climates, or pursued irrespective of program, the unique character of a program and a site becomes the starting point for an architectural idea.

 While anchoring each work in its specific site and circumstance, Miguel Barbosa Architects endeavors to obtain a deeper beginning in the experience of time, space, light, and materials.  The phenomena of the space of a room, the sunlight entering through a window, and the color and reflection of materials on a wall and floor, all have integral relationships.  The materials communicate through resonance and dissonance, just as instruments in musical composition, producing thought and sense-provoking qualities in the experience of a place. undefined

  Extending this approach with ecological innovation, Miguel Barbosa Architects is recognized for the ability to shape space and light with great contextual sensitivity and to catalyze the unique qualities of each project to create a concept-driven design at multiple scales, from minimal dwellings to new hybrid models of urbanism.
