MBB DesignStudio


MBB DesignStudio is a small dynamic residential planning and design firm founded in 2009 by Michal Brison. The firm focuses on contemporary residential design in the Los Angeles area.  

The success of our projects is a result of the collaborative relationships between our studio staff and each client. We believe that our role is not to dominate the process, but rather to guide it to completion with the client’s goals and budget as top priorities.  

We strongly believe that owners, along with their design team, are teammates in the design process, and communication must be open and continuous. This successful collaboration results in gracious, efficient and comfortable spaces in which to live and work —— from early conceptual and planning stages through to construction documents and administration. Our intent is to provide intelligent direction for our clients that will create both value and beauty. We focus on collaboration with all of the partners in the process, so that the design experience is transparent, responsive, foresighted, and flexible.

We have completed projects at a variety of scales and budgets and remain personal, realistic and grounded.

We personalize each design making informed decisions while meeting our clients’ objectives. We help minimize the stress that often accompanies renovation and/or new construction.  We maintain excellent work relationships and stay closely involved throughout all construction phases to ensure the flawless execution of our designs.

We want your experience to be great. We can help you realize your dreams, put your ideas on paper, and make sure they get executed/built just the way you envision it.
