Director of Architecture
Boukman Mangones, is a graduate of Florida International University’s School of Architecture, joined R.J. Heisenbottle Architects (RJHA) in December 2006 and has since served as Architectural Project Manager on many of the firm’s most notable projects.
At RJHA, Mr. Mangones was involved in the schematic design of the $200M Belleview Biltmore Hotel restoration project in Belleair, Florida, one of Florida’s grandest gilded age historic hotels.
