Heritage

Our legacy is rooted in cultural preservation and sustainable design. We embrace a building’s history and environmental context while reconciling the needs of our changing world through resilient innovation and sculptural expression. We grew out of the modernist lineage of Cooper-Lecky Architects, the Washington, DC successor of renowned mid-century architect Eero Saarinen. Our expertise in preservation grew by collaborating with and then acquiring one of the nation’s most prominent historical preservation firms, John Milner Associates Preservation. MTFA continues to build on the synergy of these legacy values to enrich all of our projects to define place, serve community, and transcend time.
