MIMAHousing was founded in 2011, combining the experience of its two directors with their mutual aim of doing something new in residential architecture. The work of MIMA focuses simultaneously on the formulation of architectural concepts and in their conversion to reality, under the form of simple and accessible products. MIMA does not only conceive architecture, but rather delivers architecture, seeking to carry forward the Modernist dream of prefabrication, of integrated design, of architectural democratization.
