Portrait of Maria Danos

Principal, Maria Danos Architecture


Maria Danos Architecture (MD. A) is a boutique architecture and interior design practice committed to crafting high quality, engaging spaces that lift the human spirit. Framed by an underlying respect for cultural and built heritage, MD. A conceives projects by responding to context, as well as the narratives and opportunities presented by clients – exploring the interplay between light and shadow, colour and texture, resulting in work that is multidimensional.

Prior to launching her eponymous practice in 2015, Maria (Bachelor of Architecture [Hons], Bachelor of Planning and Design, Bachelor of Science) held senior positions in high profile architectural firms. With a belief in social responsibility, Maria has undertaken pro-bono work for community organisations. Her active involvement in the architecture community as a tutor, mentor, juror, writer and as an advocate for design excellence strongly compliments the MD. A practice.
