Doug, co-founder of Mullen Heller Architecture with Michele Mullen, has been helping clients succeed in their vocations and business endeavors for years with his energetic problem-solving style. His ability to graphically present big-picture ideas, and at the same time think of the little architectural details, has been put to use time and again for clients from all walks of life. His understanding of what it takes to succeed in architectural endeavors includes expertise in municipal planning processes and negotiations with all project stakeholders.
His work designing spaces of discovery and learning, such as Hope Village, New Mexico’s first newly constructed permanent supportive housing project, and numerous animal hospitals are the combination of delicate land-use and consensus-building.
Favorite part of Mullen Heller projects: Great geometry.
The best place in the world to chill out: The patio at any Albuquerque brewery.
When not working: Doug lends his organizational talent to many non-profit organizations, as a member of the Board of Directors for Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico and chair of AIA New Mexico’s Small Firm Exchange.
