Mihai Ivan

Project Director, Associate
“ Architecture must appeal to all the senses and is never a purely intellectual, conceptual or visual game alone. Architecture is about combining all of the individual elements in a single concept. What counts in the last resort is the arrangement of form and emotion ”


Mihai grew up in Romania and was trained as an Architect at University of Architecture and Planning in Bucharest, where he graduated with top honors. He worked on many significant projects throughout Europe, and then moved to the United States to continue his career and advance his education. From his combined European and US influences, Mihai gained a profound understanding of Architectural style, quality, and detail with a special emphasis on high-end residential and public buildings.


Initiating his career in Europe, Mihai’s unique design aesthetic is influenced by this global perspective. With over 15 years of experience as a designer, his work strives to connect the creation of a building’s concept to the craft of construction.
