Our Studio

With over 50 years of trusted relationships and success in interior space planning, design, and branding, MKDA Miami continues to diversify the firm’s scope of work and services that are offered to our clients. MKDA Miami is the architectural sector of MKDA specializing in ground-up architecture, interior design, and branding. Just like the city’s up-beat, vibrant, and sultry culture, MKDA Miami is constantly striving to bring excitement to life through design and architecture.



In keeping with the family-owned and operated tradition, MKDA Miami is lead by Executive Managing Director, Amanda Hertzler, with her brother Brett Hertzler alongside as Director of Architecture. The dynamic duo and their talented team are responsible for helping reform the face of Miami’s Arts District, Wynwood, through game-changing architecture. Amanda is committed to being on the leading edge of design trends and the use of advanced technology, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), but it is her design vision—designing for the desired behavior of a space as well as functionality—that serves her clients well. Brett’s unique blend of creative and practical talent translates into an integrated approach that considers architectural design to emerge as a response to the social and formal urban fabric.


Our Approach

Of the three MKDA offices, MKDA Miami is happy to be the latest addition to the family since its opening in 2013. Within a short time span, we have been able to maintain and elevate the firm’s reputable and highly-respected name through engaging in forward-thinking design principles. Our number one priority is client satisfaction. We offer principal involvement throughout all stages of the design process to ensure that our client’s expectations are met, which has been our hallmark for decades. Our timely turn arounds, efficient planning, and exceptional designs match the capabilities of larger firms while reaping the benefits of full-engagement with boutique firms.
