M. J. Neal Architects specializes in contemporary architecture and interiors for residential, commercial, corporate, and institutional. M. J. Neal, AIA has received numerous national and international design awards.
What do our clients think of us? The Austin Monthly featured our Edmonds residence project: "... What can we give back to the land?" is the question Neal likes to ask. So when Neal's clients marveled that the Horseshoe Bay house he designed for them seemed "to grow from the land'' he was pleased. It seems he had given something back."
"He picks colors, he says, for their complexity and life. He could be talking about himself, for it's the complexity and life of his vision that surely draws clients to him." (http://austinmonthly.com/)
The magazine Texas Architect quotes the owner of the store, "Camargo credits his store's ethereal spirit and minimalist casework as the catalysts for putting shoppers in a buying mood, and says the soft-sell approach has resulted in Anthony Nak exceeding even its most optimistic sales projections…” (http://texasarchitect.org/texasarch_articles.php)
We bring ferociousness, rigor, and truth to the practice of architecture. It is not just our profession; it is our vocation. We specialize in contemporary design and, although we can bring to you that certain "feel" you have in mind for your project and we strive to elicit our client’s hopes, dreams, and desires and then exceed them, we only work with clients that want truthful architecture.
