MXA Development was founded by Andres Ariza, a 26-year Venice, California resident with a passion for design and development. Inspired by renowned minimalists Mies Van Der Rohe, Philip Johnson and Luis Barragan, Andres has designed and completed nine ground up single-family projects, along with countless major renovations and mixed use projects. After completing his first ground up home, Andres searched to find efficiencies in the construction process. The drive for a highly energy efficient and ECO home lead Andres to design pre-engineered steel homes with all structural components built off-site and assembled onsite under the moniker of Red Barn Prefab. Andres has designed and built eight compelling Case Study Homes with more on the way.
