The firm has a special interest in building in the urban context, with half of its work occurring in San Francisco. Mark English Architects offers a designer's sense of artistry, supported by practical knowledge gained from years of direct hands-on building experience, having worked as a carpenter on his first realized home design at the age of 19. The team respectfully guides the the client towards what could, and what should, happen in a space - so that they are both pleased and surprised by the results. Mark's undergraduate experience at CalPoly included rigorous training in engineering and structural principles.

LEED-certified architects of finely-designed custom homes, remodels, additions and interiors. A client-centric approach. Permit expertise and excellent project management. Design Quality and Diversity Winder Gibson’s signature design projects are never bound by a specific style or material palette, but rather demonstrate an attention to detail, clean crisp lines, sustainability and function. They approach every design with an appreciation for the poetic experience of architecture, such as a hand gliding down a mahogany handrail or the afternoon light captured through a certain window. On their website you can see the depth of experience in their portfolio of diverse projects, flawlessly executed for satisfied clients. Client-Oriented Approach Winder Gibson understands that it takes more than a good design to make a project happen—it takes collaboration and communication. They actively listen to their clients and tailor their services to the clients’ needs. They promptly respond to phone calls and emails and deal with issues as soon as they arise. Working closely with clients, they understand the personal and emotional aspects of every project. And working with small and large developers, they know the business behind construction, including carrying costs, budgets and schedules. Free In-Home Consultation and Flexible Pricing Winder Gibson offers free initial in-home consultations. This meeting allows them to get to know you, assess the proposed project and develop a pricing structure that works for everyone. Not every client requires the same suite of services. They help clients understand the role of the architect and the ways they can save money in the long run by avoiding change orders and cost overruns during construction. Permit and Planning Department Expertise It is no coincidence that Winder Gibson’s office is a few blocks from the San Francisco Building and Planning Departments where they have carefully fostered strong relationships with staff members. They know how to shepherd a project through the confusing permit process and obtain variances, conditional use permits, neighborhood notifications and seismic upgrades. Beyond San Francisco, they have navigated some of the toughest permit departments around the Bay Area, including Tiburon, Hillsborough, Berkeley, and Sonoma and Napa counties.

I am a Licensed Architect with over 25 years experience and a Licensed General Contractor in California. I am one of the few Architects who has built what he has designed from the ground up. I acted as the Architect, the Developer and the Builder for a challenging new residence in the Oakland Hills. I currently do not practice as a Contractor, but this past experience proves invaluable when generating detailed construction documents in relation to the quality of the built project and how Design Details are executed and built. My Award Winning Residential Projects range from Kitchen and Bath Remodels, Additions, Entire House Remodels, New Houses from the ground up and Large Multifamily and Townhouse Projects. I offer complete Architectural Services, from the initial concept through to the final punch list. A typical scope of services includes: A comprehensive Design Phase, where I listen and assess my clients needs and offer several design solutions to choose and work from; Preliminary cost estimating with the assistance of a qualified Contractor to establish a Preliminary Construction Budget; A Design Development Phase where finishes, fixtures and finishes are reviewed and selected; Comprehensive and Detailed Construction Documents for Permit Approval, to Bid from, and to Build from; Review of Bids from qualified Contractors; and Construction Observation during the Construction of the Project. I have a passion for creative problem solving and pursue a thorough attention to detail. This imaginative problem solving and attention to detail is documented in highly detailed drawings that focus on beauty and elegance, practicality, and solid construction principles. These highly detailed drawings result in accurate bids, fewer change orders and beautifully built projects. My projects feature industry standard sustainable materials and methods, and several feature in depth sustainable material selection and focus on energy efficiency.
