Richard McGinniss is challenging Florida’s typical home building model. That’s why he is throwing the idea of building stucco houses with terracotta tiled roofs into the Gulf of Mexico.
Building well-designed homes for people with discerning taste is Richard’s passion, and he knew he had found his path as a young man when he was building luxury residential homes in the Boston area. His high-energy never-ending pursuit for design excellence takes him all over the world to study mid-century modern design and architecture. Because of his knowledge and experience, Richard has made an art of creating unique and sustainable homes while maximizing value for his clients.
He’s designed and built everything from a $800 million Research Camp to luxury hotels for clients like Ritz-Carlton, Hyatt, and Marriott. He’s also built corporate headquarters for some of the most recognized companies in America including IBM, Aetna, and Bristol-Myers, custom homes for clients like David Murdoch, and later in his career developed some of the largest residential neighborhoods in the Southeast. In 2013, Richard decided it was time to leave the corporate grind behind and do what he loved to do, and that is to build high-quality, unique modern homes for people with distinct and refined taste. Richard’s philosophy is straightforward, “I enjoy building kick-ass houses; it’s the best feeling in the world, building beautiful and unique homes for great people. That’s everything to me.”
His vast experience affords him a profound depth of knowledge in conceptualizing a home and as well as the financial discipline to build these unique masterpieces within budget. Richard is an urban pioneer, challenging the status quo with his architectural vision and creating livable works of arts for clients who recognize and appreciate great design. In the end, MTBH’s homeowners live in elegant, distinctive spaces where form and function meet to enhance the quality of their lives.
