Architecture is the cornerstone of Bermello, Ajamil & Partners, Inc. While the firm has expanded into a multidisciplinary A/E practice, it remains committed to excellence in architectural design. The creative process of solving problems in an imaginative and cost-conscious manner is not a function of circumstance, but the diligent application of talent and expertise. We strive to maintain a balance; to turn each vision into an award-winning forward thinking solution that will stand the test of time for our clients. Our architecture group practices within the context of BA’s multidisciplinary workplace, supported by Engineering, Planning, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design.


Architecture is our cornerstone.

BA was originally founded in 1939 as a small local architectural firm and incorporated in the City of Miami under its current name in 1992. The arrival of Willy Bermello in 1976 ushered in a new era of expansion. Mr. Bermello led the 80’s diversification, taking the firm into multiple disciplines, including Architecture, Planning, Urban Design, and Interior Design. When Luis Ajamil joined the firm in 1992, BA embarked on the second wave of diversification into multiple market sectors such as Maritime, Transportation, and Municipal with a strong focus on Engineering.
