"When I was in primary school, my grandfather made a point of involving me in the building process – to show me the drawings, and listen to his conversations with architects. Now, I can look back and realize my love for architecture, the smell of concrete, and the idea of building something from the ground up, came from those experiences."

Marvin Flax

Managing Director - British Virgin Islands

Responsible design is second nature to Marvin Flax. A native of the British Virgin Islands, he believes design must always minimize its impact on the natural environment. He also brings a considered blend of traditional and modern aesthetics to the OBMI team. Marvin has been the Project Architect on notable works including the Farara House office building and several high-end residential estates, including the spectacular Nora Hazel Point Residences and the Nevaeh residence on Anguilla.

Before joining OBMI, Marvin worked at Collins Cooper Carusi Architects in Atlanta, Georgia, with a focus on educational building design. While at CCCA he was an integral member of several small project teams, including the University of Georgia’s New Residence Hall at the East Campus in Athens, Georgia and the Mount Vernon Presbyterian School Glenn Campus in Atlanta, both of which are LEED certified. Prior to joining CCCA, he worked at TVS Design, where he gained valuable experience in mid- to high-rise office, convention center, and retail architecture.

Marvin holds a Master in Architecture degree from Savannah College of Art & Design and is the immediate past president of Sunshine Rotary for the British Virgin Islands. He also has a real affinity for construction administration, a talent no doubt gleaned from childhood days spent tagging along with his grandfather to construction sites.
