  • 3D Modeling, Computer Animation & Renderings

    Jun 24, 2014

    M+H Architects utilizes Revit to create 3D models of buildings, sites and other areas of projects to clearly communicate the design intent, explain concepts and discuss the building in detail. This allows the client to see buildings in a way that isn’t available with 2D drawings. Many times we develop a model and include topography to get a realistic feel of the land, how the building integrates with the site, along with circulation, storm water detention, visibility and context. This approach is helpful because it reviews the design from an aerial viewpoint. We can take the result of the 3D model and create finished renderings for marketing, presentation and fundraising purposes. Check out our Vimeo Site to see our newly updated animations!

    To say that you’re “creative” can just be a common description that gets thrown around all too often. Being creative is much more than being curious, inventive and independent.  It also incorporates listening, trusting your gut, learning from experiences and as the cliché says “thinking outside the box.”

    Responsiveness has been a cornerstone of our business since we formed in 1989. Being responsive is essential to promoting, developing and supporting any business. Being easily accessible (by phone, email, text, etc.) makes doing business easier, faster and more enjoyable. Everyone is busy and appreciates quick responses, but the quality and accuracy of the response is just as important as the speed of the response.

  • The Great LinkedIn Mystery

    Jan 16, 2014

    A funny thing happened a couple weeks ago.  We decided to revamp our Corporate LinkedIn page (click here to follow us and get our updates) and really make it work for us.  So after some updating and a couple of minor tweaks we were ready to re-launch our page.  That’s when we realized the majority of our employees weren’t linked to our corporate page; they simply listed M+H Architects as their employer.

  • Co-Mo Electric Cooperative

    Jan 09, 2014

    M+H Architects master planned Co-Mo’s existing site to maximize the space available, improve site circulation, expand capabilities for future needs and implement a phased approach for the construction of building components.  The original site, located near the center of the state, in Tipton, MO, housed the original 1959 office which had an attached garage, too small for construction trucks and large service trucks, a separate warehouse with a loading platform and a separate vehicle storage building. The existing office had been added to twice over the last 30 years, creating additional corridor requirements for circulation and office spaces that are accessed through adjacent spaces.

  • Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

    Dec 26, 2013

    Does anyone really know where the ugly Christmas sweater originated?  What classifies an ugly Christmas sweater anyways?  The official definition should be any Christmas themed sweater that is tacky, gaudy, and/or obnoxious.

  • “I CAN’T BELIEVE I ATE THE WHOLE THING”

    Nov 26, 2013

    You know, you often hear people say that “practice makes perfect” or that repetition is the best way to master a task. Well, we intended to make no mistakes in preparation for this holiday season as this week our office participated in the Annual M+H “Stomach Stretcher.” While the event was certain to re-shape your physique and leave you utterly exhausted, it was by no means athletic. In the most eloquent term, it was a feast; fit for a small army of designers.

  • M+H Goes APE!!

    Nov 15, 2013

    M+H and O’Toole literally “went ape” on November 7th when we held a team-building treetop adventure at “GO APE” in Creve Coeur Park! The course includes zip lines, obstacles galore and Tarzan swings which took nearly 3 hours for the group to complete. (Being the eldest of the group, I can attest to feeling a bit like a dare devil at the finish line!) It was a lot of fun!

  • Thoughts

    Nov 01, 2013

    It’s interesting how the people who inhabit a particular building perceive architecture. For instance, finely dressed executives and judges mostly occupy monumental structures, which in some respects are stuffy, snooty buildings that overpower the surrounding area.
