Customer Testimonials

"In developing the new architectural plan for our home, Mark Kolmodin took on quite a challenging project and met our needs with an impressive amount of professionalism and creative genius. He was successful in establishing completely innovative designs for new and existing features while maintaining the integrity of original structural elements. With great attention to detail, he helped us completely rethink important aspects of our home such as our entryway, amazing new fireplace, completely open kitchen, floating loft, and the wall of windows in our living room. His designs allow us to make the most of our living space, increase our territorial views, incorporate energy efficient elements, and discretely create more privacy while letting in the most possible natural light. He helped us overcome problems with unique spaces, exposed beams, landscape slope issues, as well as construction and timing limitations while balancing against a set budget. In the year that we worked with Mark, he helped turn a significant reconstruction project into our new home and more than went above the call of duty to see our dream to fruition. We couldn't imagine working with anyone other than Mark Kolmodin as our architect."

"We have worked with Mark Kolmodin on remodel projects for two houses and I have to say I wouldn't consider working with anyone else. Years ago, his design for the remodel for our Laurelhurst Tudor brought an open sensibility to the house while maintaining an appreciation of its English roots. Mark's design included an outdoor eating space, a beautiful new kitchen and a sunny studio in the garage. Working with him was such a positive experience that before we purchased our present house, a Northwest contemporary, we consulted Mark again. This time to get his opinion about how the interior space might be reworked to include a studio. Again, his design solution suited the style of the home, and again I have a beautiful, light-filled studio in which to work. Mark is great to work with, offering fresh solutions with consideration of our ideas, our budget and contemporary design. You couldn't ask for a more dedicated, creative architect."

"It was a delight to work with you! You redesigned our home in a way that met function and aesthetic needs. You always made yourself available and were responsive to our budget parameters. You helped us take our old house with lots of small rooms and really opened it up. Now one walks through the front door and sees through the big windows the magnificent view of the water. People love the feel and flow of our house (including ourselves, of course!)... The biggest reason that we enjoyed working with you and why we hope to work with you again is because we felt that you listened to us and interpreted our ideas, yet finished the project with your designs which combine elegance and functionality with a comprehensive grasp of the construction process."
