About

Where our passion comes from

Michael Shilale Architects, LLP (MSA) believes buildings have a tremendous impact on humans. Our earliest work created spaces for people with limited physical and developmental abilities. Architecture has its greatest impact on those most fragile. 

MSA knows good architecture elevates and enriches the human experience for all people. It solves our clients' building problems and protects their real estate assets and investments. Our experienced and expert services help our clients save money and build under budget. Resulting projects help our clients realize their needs, goals, dreams, and desires.

Michael Shilale Architects, LLP has been a leader in sustainable design, delivering integrated solutions for their clients that save energy, reduce waste, conserve water and manage materials sustainably- improving the relationship between buildings and their sites. Both Michael and John are LEED accredited designers and Michael recently earned the rigorous distinction of Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC). MSA brings green strategies to all their projects often saving their clients millions of dollars. The firm is committed to protecting and preserving the environment through their design work.

Since 1991, clients have entrusted Michael Shilale Architects, LLP to provide integrated solutions for new construction, renovation, and energy saving projects.  MSA has completed over 2,000 projects, each personally managed by principals Michael Shilale AIA, LEED, CPHC or John Cirilli AIA, LEED.
