According to Bert Turner, Principal at Mouton Long Turner Architects (MLT), “We bring the party to the project.” If there’s one secret to the success of this accomplished architecture firm, it’s that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Each MLT architect entered the profession thanks to a passion for architecture and approaches projects with a “let’s have fun with this” attitude.

The firm’s three principals, Jerome Mouton, Ralph Long, and Bert Turner, thrive on creating exciting, artful environments. They’re grateful for the opportunities they have to work with visionary entrepreneurs, allowing them to blend engineering and art in transforming mere ideas to buildable, real-world projects.

“There’s a certain satisfaction we get when presenting an idea and the client latches onto it and says, ‘Fantastic! Let’s run with it,’” says Long. A few local brands MLT has worked with include New Orleans Original Daiquiris/Fat Tuesday, Café du Monde, New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood, and Port Orleans Brewery & Tap Room as well as national brands: McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Arby’s, and Starbucks.

Although the majority of MLT’s work revolves around the hospitality sector, it also covers a wide range of project types—commercial, industrial, and residential—both regionally and nationally in varying size and scope. For instance, MLT’s working with the Jefferson Parish Planning Department’s CPZ zoning has helped transform bleak Veterans “highway” into a flourishing, lush “boulevard.”

Thriving on referral business, MLT is known for seriously understanding owners’ wants—optimum utilization of space, flow of traffic, product, presentation, people and budget. They put clients’ needs first and prioritize both collaboration and communication.

“Whether it’s the expansion of a local brand, designing an adaptive reuse in a historic neighborhood, creating a new restaurant concept, or simply fitting a prototype corporate building on a new site, each project comes with a unique set of challenges, and that’s the exciting part,” says Mouton.
