Michael co-founded Katinas Bruckwick Architecture in 2004 in order to ensure a dynamic approach to the design process. Be it a commercial or residential project, his enthusiasm for his work is contagious.

Michael designs and manages projects clearly and methodologically. His enthusiastic, forward-thinking approach through each phase motivates others on his team which, in turn, leads to on-time and on-budget completions.

Michael’s penchant for architecture has been evident since kindergarten when he opted to take multiple turns with the building blocks instead of switching to other activities. He explains, “Capitalize on elements that are key to appearance, flow & function.”

With over 20 years of experience designing architecture at large and small firms around the country, Michael thrives on variety. His expertise in sustainable development and design supports clients’ interests in balancing design expectations with growth and impact considerations.
