Hugo Mijares established his studio in 2007 to pursue a broad design practice. Mijares is a graduate of The School of Architecture at USF with post-professional studies at The Graduate School of Design at Harvard University . An Associate Member of the American Institute of Architects he holds a Florida Honors Fellowship and numerous design and architecture awards.Thanks to his Architecture and Industrial Design training , he has sought to integrate client based design services with speculative making. There is a symbiotic relationship between the work developed within the studio and the services provided for clients. The limited projects produced by the studio provide an intimate understanding of material properties, construction and fabrication methods, grounding a projects conceptual interest in practical experience and sustainable commitment. Regardless of the project scope, scale or type, the studio is careful to develop the experiential as well as the programmatic requirements of a project, with a goal to produce work that transcends function and exceeds expectations, while considering the economical and environmental costs.
Mijares has worked with a variety of companies such as Oppenheim Architecture + Design, ADP Group, and has done projects for Technomarine, Sonesta, W Resorts, Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Addison House and Kartell, just to name a few.
