Martin Manley Architects is a firm created as a collaborative partnership between John G Martin, Architect AIA and Jeffrey P Manley, Architect AIA. Our offices are centrally located within the Colorado mountain region in Eagle, Colorado. We have over 30 years combined experience designing and providing architectural services for residential projects of all sizes and complexity along with small commercial projects and restaurants. The firm specializes in distinctive, site-specific single family and duplex homes throughout Vail, Avon, Beaver Creek, Edwards, Eagle, and Aspen. The focus is an emphasis on stylistic variety that compliments client’s lifestyle, needs, and the mountain environment.
We also boast a portfolio of enclaves and multi-family projects. We have worked outside of Colorado as well in such places as Napa California and Belize. Martin Manley Architects provides design and architectural services for all scopes of projects that are customized to the client’s needs and resources.
The firm has been on the forefront of technology with the implementation of the latest BIM (Building Information Modeling) software to create three-dimensional computer models to aid in design visualization. The resulting designs are environmentally responsive, well planned, and efficient. Not only does this approach streamline the construction documentation process, it keeps the client intimately part of the design as the project evolves.
Martin Manley Architects is a firm with a collective knowledge and experience that offers a special perspective into each client’s venture, resulting in striking and emblematic architecture. It is the core philosophy of Martin Manley Architects that the project is an outward projection of the client’s vision with the proper exploration and guidance the client can achieve their dreams.
