  Donnie Meeks   Project Manager, Single Family 

Donnie Meeks

Project Manager, Single Family 

Donnie Meeks’ passion for design has been around his entire life. As A child he would spend most of his time either drawing in a sketchbook or creating recipes in the kitchen. Donnie always knew he wanted to pursue a creative career but was torn between the culinary arts and design/architecture.

Born and raised in Houston Texas, Donnie attended strake Jesuit college preparatory. After graduating in 1998 he attended the CIA in Hyde Park New York. It was here at the Culinary Institute of America that Donnie really dove head first into his passion for the culinary arts. After graduating in 2004, Donnie worked all over the country as a chef and kitchen manager for the next ten years. In 2013 he got involved in a commercial kitchen design project, and it was through this involvement that the spark for design was reignited. This renewed interest in commercial design, shifted my focus from the kitchen back into the world of architecture and design. Donnie began attending classes at the Art Institute of Houston in 2013 with focus on interior architecture. In the spring of 2017 he graduated with honors and received his Bachelors of Fine Arts degree. It was from there he joined our team at MP STUDIO. He is currently working as project manager and designer in the single family division and is an allied member of both ASID AND IIDA.

We Design Like Architects – Think Like Developers.

Attractive buildings are easy to imagine. If only architecture was that simple. The reality is, clients have varying objectives, needs, requirements and budgets. Cities have codes, covenants, rules and restrictions. And let’s not forget deadlines. Endless deadlines.

To balance these issues, and more, Meeks + Partners sets its focus on creating beautiful, purpose-driven architecture. We’ve worked with every imaginable type of multi-family residential project – and many that were once considered unimaginable. We are masters in the art of housing. We understand the importance of innovation and creativity, always balanced with technical knowledge and particular care and attention to time management. The benefit to our clients is that our projects are buildable, livable, marketable and profitable.
