About Us

Mark A Silva, Architect creates place as a direct reflection of you and your site. As an award winning architect, Mark makes your project a fusion of your dreams, the personality of the site, and the authenticity of architecture. Raised in a William Krisel-designed post and beam midcentury modern home in San Diego, the vernacular’s devotion to open spaces, expanses of glass, and seamless indoor-outdoor living has resonated with Silva from the outset of his career and is a visible thread throughout his portfolio. “Post and beam midcentury modern architecture shaped my understanding of design from a young age, so it definitely influences my work, but I bring several different things to the table. The architectural language of midcentury modern is just one of those factors,” Silva says. “At the end of the day, every design is a unique creative work that comes from my head and hands to provide a beautiful, functional, and correct solution to a project’s unique needs.” A veteran architect who has designed a stunning array of award-winning homes over his more than 30-year career, he views his work as ever-evolving creatively and, while rooted in an affinity for the philosophies of architectural luminaries like Kahn, Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and Oscar Niemeyer, his process is a constantly adaptive approach to realizing authentic architecture. “My clients are interested in building not just a house, but a home and a work of art that expresses who they are,” Silva says. “That requires more than a rote representation of iconic ideas, and that’s the kind of meaningful architectural experience I strive to provide them. That, to me, is success.”
