MC3 Design was established by John and Maya McKenna as a family-owned architectural services firm based out of Northern Virginia. The firm was built on the philosophy that the best way to truly understand a client's needs is to know them on a personal level. Each family has an individual style and ideas of how to best use their space. We take pride in our work and our relationships, ensuring that each client has a single primary point of contact to provide consistency throughout the project's lifecycle.

The firm has 8 years experience in residential and commercial design and over 5 years of experience in residential design-build.


Principal Architect & Managing Director

The brains. John graduated from Virginia Tech's Architecture program with a passion for modern design. After 5 years experience in prominent, DC-based commercial architecture firms, John joined a residential architecture company to expand his experience. Here he found himself enjoying the personal connections with clients and increased opportunity for individualized design. John loves discussing the art of the possible, while also setting realistic expectations based on his extensive experience dealing with various municipalities. 


Director of Design and Operations

The boss. Maya graduated from Virginia Tech's Civil and Environmental Engineering program, but quickly realized her passion lay outside runoff calculations. She joined a technology consulting firm where she implemented business process improvement  and technology automation solutions. She has a passion for client relations and efficiency, bringing her business acumen to the construction industry. Maya loves connecting with clients, learning their passions, and using this to pinpoint the perfect inspiration for their project while maintaining a close eye on budget.
