WELCOME TO THE STUDIO

We are a multidisciplinary architectural design studio dedicated to collaboration as a means to inspired design.

MV STUDIO is an award-winning architecture and design studio based in Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. The studio specializes in residential, commercial, interior design, and fine arts.

With a collaborative focus, MV STUDIO is a place where design diversity allows for critical discourse and lively culture. Conscious of design’s ability to connect people through curiosity and creativity, we aspire to enrich the built environment by combining our talents and sensibilities into each and every one of our projects. 

Ultimately, MV STUDIO’s approach relies on the collective understanding that the culmination of each member’s experiences and valued opinions will inevitably elevate the possibility of innovative design thinking and solutions to our design challenges.

ALFREDO MARÍN GAOS

B.F.A.

Partner, Design Director
Alfredo is an Artist and Designer. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Since 2000, Alfredo has exhibited his art in Puerto Rico, New York, Indiana, and Illinois. ​ Design Philosophy: "We are all obligated in one way or another to be surrounded by, tortured & bombarded by, bored,  inconvenienced by, surprised and perhaps even inspired by a universe of good and bad design decisions during every single waking moment of our lives. This is what motivates me to make things function, look, perform and communicate better. Design, in the best of cases, when well planned, thought & executed, has the ability to improve the way we live and work."
