PRINCIPAL

William H. Arthur IV, AIA, NCARB

William H. Arthur IV, AIA, NCARB graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida and earned the AIA Henry Adams Gold Medal in 2011. William has worked in design, construction and planning in South Florida for more than 17 years, often in collaboration with his family’s practice in Architecture.

William seeks to design from a perspective that is both Culturally and Historically-Minded. Since 2009, William began to collect and catalog his grandfather’s early works, familiarizing himself with his heritage of fine Architecture and design.
Finding merit not only the constructions that he studied, but also their impact on the people who utilize them, William developed a sense of obligation to Miami and the unique architecture that formed it.

Since 2008, William has examined how buildings function with or without the use of air-conditioning, in both Miami and Havana, Cuba using a special travel license granted to him by the U.S. Treasury department. William continues to build upon the practices and techniques learned from this rare opportunity to utilize the local government as an asset rather than a challenge, and is invited return to Havana, Cuba annually to participate in an Urban Design Charrette hosted by local architects and city staff.

William currently serves as lecturer at Florida International University, critic at the University of Florida and is occasionally cited in newspapers and articles around the world.

Three (3) academic projects designed by William have received State AIA awards and in 2010,
William received a teaching award from the University of Florida citing his extraordinary contribution to the school’s teaching mission.

We are located at 2920 Ponce de Leon Blvd, downtown Coral Gables; the district George Merrick designed for Artists and Architects in 1924.

We have a strong commitment to the Environment— we consider the overall impact on both South Florida’s built and unbuilt Environments. Our traditions of passive energy design, open-air environments and atmospheric transparency came from our research, and were adopted from our roots with prominent Miami Modern (MiMo) architect, Igor B. Polevitzky, FAIA.

We represents an important change in the industry— Our Miami firm for Architecture alleviates the need to hire and coordinate additional consultants because we offer comprehensive project design, management and planning. We perform Plumbing, Mechanical, Electrical and Structural design for most of our projects in-house, decreasing delivery and permitting times.
Our projects are effective— A report by Professional Bank, of Coral Gables found that new residential projects managed by us are constructed for about 25% less than the average firm in South Florida.
