After high school, William decided he wanted to make art and architecture more than a hobby. He attended Kalamazoo College where he worked toward a degree in Studio Art. While at school, he had the honor of being the first Kalamazoo student admitted to Copenhagen’s Denmark International Studies program. Since William was neither a graduate student nor an Architecture major, he was a longshot for the program. The organizers of the program were so impressed by his persistence during the application process that he was allowed to attend. It was because of this experience that William decided to take the next step toward becoming an architect by pursuing his Masters degree. William took classes at both Technische Universität Wien and the University of Michigan on the way to his degree. He considers these formative years some of the most memorable of his life to this point.
Raised in Holland, Michigan, William Mungall spent his childhood traveling around the United States with his family. Spending time in San Francisco, upstate New York, and even Boston, William began to gain an interest in the architectural achievements surrounding him. Living in different locations across the U.S. gave William the opportunity to explore a variety of schools, warehouses, museums and other unique and interesting buildings. William’s parents recognized his interest in art and architecture and began to encourage his passion with books on the subject, classes, and visits to influential and important buildings.
After completing his degree, William began working with an architecture firm in Chicago that specializes in residential design, loft conversion, single family and multi-family complexes. He then moved to California where he continued to hone his residential design skills. William Mungall is currently an AIA, LEED AP Associate at Landry Design Group in Los Angeles, CA. He loves travel and has been part of architectural projects all over the world.
