Malinard Manor

"I can't imagine having used anyone other than Mark for our house. The scale, complexity, and scope (6 years in the making) demanded not only beautiful design, but a focus and attention to detailnot easily found these days. Mark is unique in that he has both the mind of an artist as well as that of an engineer -beauty, precision, the highest quality and functionality were all of equal importance. Mark made it happen."

Anne -Homeowner


"We knew that the Gothic house we were envisioning didn't fit the mold of architecture and design in this part of the country, or even this point in history. Although Cravotta Studios had never attempted such a project before, the idea was exciting to Mark. He not only honored our initial guidlines, he got inside our world and started dreaming on our behalf. What followed was many years of design excellence and execution, each step building upon the other.

I am an engineer by profession, and I found it refreshing to be able to communicate with Mark in subtle and sophisticated ways as we maneuvered through this very complex and rewarding process. What we now have is an amazing and timeless home that will stand as a example of fine craftsmanship and design long after we're gone.
