Antonio has been a vital asset to Mullen Heller Architecture since joining the team in 2009. He was born and raised in Los Alamos, New Mexico where he gained a passion for technology and the natural environment, which sparked his interest to create vibrant and modern spaces that still relate to a specific context. This can be seen in a variety of projects he has completed with MHA. He excels in understanding a client’s initial vision and transforming that idea, through a collaborative design process, into a three-dimensional solution, and ultimately a successful building.
Antonio takes pride in understanding each project’s potential constraints and opportunities and discovering design solutions for them, whether it is a large Pima Medical Institute school campus in El Paso, Texas, or a small brewery renovation such as Desert Valley on Albuquerque’s Westside.
Favorite part of Mullen Heller projects: Visiting a project after it is completed and seeing people utilize the space.
The best place in the world to chill out: Relaxing on the lawn in Boston Common.
When not working: Antonio is out exploring the Bosque or Sandia foothills with his dog, Motley.
