Man Designs is a third generation firm of architects and builders in the
Dominican Republic. The legacy began in the 1940s with Jose Manuel Reyes
Valdez ( Nani ) who graduated from University of Texas at Austin and
came back to the island to form Reyes Construcciones. Among some of his
most recognized buildings were the original Ferreteria Americana, the
Pepsi Cola building and various others…………
His residential designs have become an iconic part of Dominican
architectural history and have been documented in several books. Nanis
designs are considered timeless and revelent still today.
In 1980 Jose Manuel Reyes Malla, Nanis son, returned from Washington DC
where he acquired his BA in architecture from Catholic University of
America, Washington DC and then went on to become a civil engineer at
Universidad O & M.
Since then he has been committed to transforming Dominican architecture
with his company GREEN MAN DESIGNS.
The list of clients includes a wide scope from residential to industrial
and commercial to tourism. We believe in creating memorable and
functional spaces while exploring new technology.
