MR Architecture + Decor is a 30-person studio led by founding partner david mann, in collaboration with associates william clukies, robin corsino and robert fuller. based in new york city, the firm’s scope of work extends from ground-up construction and renovation to interior architecture, design and decoration for residential, retail and other commercial spaces.
The MR aesthetic is characterized by diversity and unified by an essential clarity. Design evolves out of intimate dialogue: between the client and the architect, between the architect and the site. The results reflect clients’ needs and desires, their unique characters as filtered through the mr vision; and reveal a beautifully calibrated balance between form and function.
With no singular mandated style, mr is free to take on widely disparate clients and projects. the common denominator throughout is a disciplined aesthetic that focuses on revealing the poetry in the most rational approach to space, proportion and light.
Arquitect David Mann of MR Arquitecture + decor adapts well. in the 80’s he worked for stuart greet on saul steinberg´s 36 room triplex and john lennon and yoko no’s dakota apartment – two enduring symbols of the era. he moved on to ten year-long stint as senior designer with fox and fowle, the prominent corporate arquitects of the time.
For the past fourteen year he has been the principal of his own firm designing homes for families (ans a lot of bachelors), leading fashion boutiques, restaurants, hotels, and many other unique projects. mann´s flexibility and talent has garnered him praise from a variety of periodicals and industry groups.
