Our Team

Nunzio Marc DeSantis Architects is a firm of designers, innovators and leaders solely focused on the DESIGN OF HOSPITALITY ENVIRONMENTS and the way people engage and experience them.

NMDA believes these experiences can and should be enriched by the built environments in which they take place and use architectural design to create meaningful hotels and resorts around the world.

All Luxury, Large or Small

Nunzio’s career started at HKS 36 years ago where he created the HKS Hospitality Group. Nunzio has 36 years of experience and knowledge in the design and delivery of hospitality related structures as large as 4,000 guestrooms and 12 million square feet to small boutique resorts of less than 30 rooms. Nunzio’s work can be witnessed in 27 states and 20 countries.

A client experience as luxurious as our resorts

After leaving HKS, Nunzio, with his partner and son, established NMDA in 2017 as a firm solely dedicated to the design of hotels, resorts, convention center hotels, retreats along with all other hospitality related structures. The firm is equally committed to enrich the client experience by using its hospitality expertise to build long lasting relationships with recognizable brand developers and owners.

Defining a global portfolio

In the short time since its establishment, NMDA’s projects and designers have already been featured in notable publications and the firm is quickly being recognized as a force in the industry.
