After 20 years of residential architecture practice, I'm pleased to announce I'm joining my wife in retirement - off to explore a new chapter! Other than the projects underway, I'll not be taking on any new work. Thanks to all of the contractors, interior designers, engineers and consultants that I've had the pleasure of working with these past years. A special thanks to all of my clients for their trust and enthusiasm in the designing of their dream homes.

Selecting your contractor is an important decision….we assist you in reviewing the contractors qualifications, analyzing budgets and reviewing the construction so the design's integrity is maintained
"Mark at FitzWilliam Architects has made our dream home come to reality without any of the negatives that you often hear of as people begin this process. Mark was incredibly knowledgeable, yet friendly. He was concise and responsive without being pushy or taking over with his image. The process was much more enjoyable and the output far exceeded any image we originally had. As someone who hadn't done this before, Mark made the process easy to understand, kept us on track, helped us value engineer to understand cost implications on the final product. Also, he was very affordable given the caliber of his work. I couldn't recommend FitzWilliam Architects any more highly!" Tiffany KoptishTiffany Koptish
"We interviewed a few different architects but chose FitzWilliam Architects and are so happy we did! Mark was incredible to work with - he nailed our exterior plans with his initial set of drawings and created our dream home! His responsiveness throughout the entire process exceeded our expectations and his willingness to incorporate all the components we wanted was exceptional. The level of detail in his drawings made the electrical and kitchen design a breeze and ensured we didn't have any delays in permitting. We have raved about his work and would highly recommend him. If we build again in the future, he will be our architect!Lori Ealey
“Before we chose FitzWilliam Architects we interviewed several firms, Fitzwilliam was a great fit for us. We couldn't have asked for a better experience - design, knowledge, and quality of the plans are second to none. We received a great floor plan and design that exceeded our expectations, was in line with our project budget, and Mark is still fully engaged as we go through the actual build......From window design & layout down to lighting arrangement and work with the structural engineer, Mark has a gift for designing a beautiful home....FitzWilliam Architects will be our first call if we have another remodel or new home build in the future.”Brandon McGuire
"Mark was fantastic to work with. He was able to listen to all of our wants and needs and transform it into a wonderful finished plan. He worked diligently to ensure we were happy and had all our questions answered. I would highly recommend Mark and would gladly use him again."Meghan Blower
Working with Fitzwilliam Architects was great and I love my remodeled house. Mark quickly understood what I was looking for in my remodel, both in functional layout as well as the aesthetic style. He came up with a great design quickly and was easy to work with as we finetuned the plans. The project budget ended up higher than we had planned. However, the end result is worth it. Bonnie Biafore
Mark is amazing! We are adding a second story to our Denver bungalow as well as an addition, remodel, and new garage with apartment above. Working with Mark was so much fun. From our first meeting, he listens to every detail you want included in your project and does it. I was very comfortable asking him to make changes during the design phase and Mark offered great solutions and ideas as well. We wanted to keep the charm of the craftsman style and he accomplished that as well as bringing in modern elements to the design. Mark goes above and beyond what an architect should do. His plans are far more detailed so meetings with our contractor went smooth and fast. I also felt stress free when we submitted them to the city for approval. Mark also kept me, a pregnant mother with a toddler, on schedule and organized. He worked around my schedule, came to me, and made it very stress free. Even though our drawings are finished, Mark is still very involved in the processes. He has an excellent relationship with our contractor and is available anytime to offer his expertise. We highly recommend working with Fitzwilliam Architects because of his professionalism, hard work, and excellent architectural drawings.Libby Sombati
Mark provided a comprehensive architectural plan for my remodel project – the level of detail was extremely helpful ...particularly in establishing expectations for my contractor. He listened to my initial ideas for the project, and added so much character to the design, aligning the new construction details with the 1938 vintage aspects of my home...Mark was super patient with me during my first major remodel, walking me through the various iterations of the plan, and helping me understand the bids I received...he had a presence during construction to help ensure it was consistent with the architectural drawings, and promptly communicated with me any significant deviations from the plan...If I ever take on a remodel project again, I will absolutely work again with FitzWilliam Architects.Kathy Rosow
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Mark on our Home design! Throughout the entire process, Mark has been an excellent listener, which is SO important when creating something so personal as our "forever home"…...Mark was able to create our perfect home, taking into account all the details that we love! We found Mark to be very knowledgeable, creative, available and responsive! We would certainly recommend his services and would definitely work with him again!"Kayln Denno
“The house is just fantastic. I really do want to thank you for the fantastic job you did for us. For us the process started with nothing more than a concept of what we wanted in a house and you turned our concept .....into reality. Really great job, you should feel very proud of the end product.” Don Kasica
“..Mark was very attentive and listened to the things that were important to us...he spent time learning our neighborhood and incorporated those characteristics...he was prompt, dependable, professional and very easy to work with..we highly recommend FitzWilliam Architects...Kelly Donohoue
