The challenge is to work in collaboration with clients to realize the highest quality design. Mark's philosophy is "Liking what you do determines how well you do it." For Mark, this means building relationships, understanding the intricacies of building and design, and addressing clients most vexing problems and everyday concerns. In short, doing the best for each individual client.
Is it more important to design something that is sensational but unbuildable? We believe creativity is to design a home that fits the owner, site, style, climate, construction and budget.
With a staff of six, Mark works side by side to promote ease in communication at all times. Whether he is directing his draftsman, overseeing a submittal, or ensuring the progress of tasks to move the project along in a seamless manner, Mark is able to change modes from design to technical to management seamlessly. It is this talent that ensures the best design, developed in the most complete manner, in the most efficient time frame.
