About The Firm

Martinez + Cutri Urban Studio Corporation is a multidisciplinary firm whose practice in the field of Architecture and Urban Design is based on the simple concept that the design of forms in space should be generated by the context of their surroundings, while the principles of design should enhance our culture. With a core staff of twenty architects, planners, designers, AutoCAD and REVIT specialists, cost estimators and specification writers, Martinez + Cutri is in a position to offer our clients the best in architectural-engineering services on a person-to-person basis.

Aesthetics, Beauty and Style

Our intent as a firm is to create good design; that is, to create spaces and structures which exhibit a timeless quality. We design environments that are inviting regardless of typology and locale. It is our contention that the vitality and beauty of the built environment play a crucial role in creating a productive and healthy community and, as design professionals, we must assume responsibility for this role.

Since our inception in 1980, the firm’s portfolio of work has included educational facilities, mixed-use urban residential developments, convention and public assembly facilities, luxury hotels and waterfront resorts, and industrial/R&D developments. These buildings and spaces are innovative while being cost effective and within prescribed construction schedules.

The principals of Martinez + Cutri possess extensive and diverse experience in project design, management and implementation. They have provided design services for public agencies, municipalities, corporations, and private entities in the United States as well as in Latin America. As a result of their practice, they have been the recipients of numerous design awards, citations and prizes from the American Institute of Architects, American Planning Association, Progressive Architecture and local commendations, including City Beautification Awards, A.I.A Orchids, and Community Proclamations.
