Cornell University graduate with extensive international experience in architecture and interior design and an advocate for sustainable design. As a plans examiner for the city of Minneapolis and certified building official in the state of Minnesota, his knowledge of international building codes makes his projects safer, accommodating physical limitations of the end users.
Mumtaz's diverse professional and academic expertise enables him to conceptualize any project holistically in order to create a natural flow of interior and exterior spaces. Known for his minimalist, aesthetically pleasing designs, Mumtaz gives attention to plays of light and shadow and free-flowing spaces. His architecture and interior design projects range from single housing units to hospitality and commercial projects and custom historic lofts.
A passion for furniture led Mumtaz to design and build several contemporary pieces, using sustainable materials. His furniture has been exhibited at home and garden shows, the AIA convention in Minneapolis, and twice at Minneapolis/St. Paul home tours. He is currently in the process of developing a line of furniture. Many of Mumtaz's projects have been published in various magazines and shown on HGTV.
