Sterling, VA Architects and Building Designers
“You cannot create experience; you must undergo it.” Marc O'Grady has a lifetime of hands-on experience in both design + construction. At MARC O’GRADY design, we believe that design and construction should be intertwined with the dreams of our clients and we pride ourselves on quality along with honest and lasting relationships with our clients. Our approach is centered on building strong relationships through honesty and integrity while working together to translate their dreams into a creative design that will allow them to live life to the fullest. Our team is passionate about design and construction and we have immeasurable hands-on experience in both fields. We work side by side with only the best contractors to create a fully integrated process. This innovative process enables us to maintain our clients’ vision from the dream stage to the fulfillment of their completed project and their new life ahead. I was able to develop a passion for architecture and construction at a very young age by growing up in our family construction business. This allowed me a unique opportunity to build a solid foundation through hands-on experience working in the field of residential construction. I was able to gain a wealth of knowledge under the tutelage of my father, teaching me not only about the business but also about working hard, being honest and creating lasting relationships. I then combined this invaluable experience with an education in architecture to begin a career in residential design. I then worked with a variety of architecture firms both large and small to fine tune my design skills and learn to develop relationships with clients and contractors. This experience allowed me the great opportunity to form MARC O’GRADY design+build and continue our family tradition of design and construction.

Inspired by a shared interest in sustainable design and artfully crafted buildings, we established our practice in 2003. We bring a detail-oriented approach to building design, developed over three decades of professional practice working on a range of projects from large scale commercial and institutional buildings to private homes in Washington DC and the surrounding region. The focus of our practice is residential architecture. Whether a project involves a renovation, an addition to an existing building or new construction, we offer full architectural services at a highly personalized level. Our clients are central to the design process and we keep them continuously involved. Our approach is to foster a team approach in which all team members including us — from energy modelers to engineers, contractors to owners — are encouraged to be involved from the very beginning in order to make critical decisions about the materials, systems, and building technologies that form the basis for the design. We believe that this approach creates architecture which is integrated, holistic and innovative, while at the same time considerate of its environmental impact. While our work is devoted to a concern for space, light, order, and craft, it is guided by our commitment to environmental stewardship through responsible, inventive design and professional leadership. Environmental issues and architecture are intrinsically linked at every level and we believe that, as architects, we are positioned to provide leadership in environmental responsibility. For these reasons we have continuously grown our interest and knowledge base in sustainable design. We view a sustainable design approach as not only productive and essential to our profession of designing buildings, but fundamentally important to us as we contemplate what kind of world we will leave to our children.
