Marek designed our house in Palo Alto. It was a real pleasure to work with him. He is professional, friendly and very responsive. He has an impeccable taste and is resourceful while always keeping in mind the budget. I would work with him again in a heartbeat! Highly recommend.
Marek was the architect for a major remodel that transformed half our 1950 ranch house into a beautiful modern home. We appreciated his great design ideas, his respect for our inputs, and his understanding of budgetary concerns. He is a great person to work with and was very responsive to adapt his ideas to issues arising during the process. We totally love the result
Marek was referred to us by our friends from the Bay Area. We liked Marek’s design style but we were also attracted to his analytical and creative way of thinking and attention to detail. Marek is an extremely knowledgeable, talented and professional architect. He designed and transformed our old house into a beautiful, modern and cleanly designed structure. The interior has an elegant ambiance of simplicity with open spaces, great functionality and stunning, sharp contrasts –exactly what we were hoping to achieve. If your desire is to enjoy your surroundings you certainly need an expert designer who you can trust your investment with. We were worried that we would go over our budget with all the expenses and construction costs. However, Marek saved us from making costly design mistakes when our imaginations and excitement got the best of us. Believe me, you don’t want to go down this road and don’t rely solely on your “good taste”. He worked with us through every detail of the design, giving us several options to choose from, developing our projects, assisting us with finish and fixture selections and helping with construction supervision. It was really an incredible experience to work with Marek- no stress, prompt return on questions, and easy & logical problem solving. And the final result was– Wow! Every day we are amazed at how beautiful our home is! It is such a great pleasure to live in a well-designed and esthetically pleasing home. And it is a testament to Marek’s skill that as time goes on we are not getting bored of our home but love it more and more every day. Remember, that is your goal! Marek is definitely an artist. Discover his talent for yourself. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our home and highly recommend Marek!
We hired Marek Slosar when our remodel was already 5 months underway. We had initially used another designer, but we realized that the project had a lack of creativity and would have resulted in major frustration, a failed remodel, and wasted money. In just one evening of talking, Marek understood our desired style and within three days he provided a revised plan for the project that was radically different and yet, from a construction/engineering point of view, only required a few tweaks. In addition he presented the plan in interactive 3D drawings so we could really form a much better idea of our future project than ever before. We were simply thrilled. We are currently executing this project, a bit slower than most people would do, because we are doing a lot of the work by ourselves while continuing a full time day job. We continue to work with Marek for two new bathrooms and he is our consultant for colors and any details we like to ask advice for. He has great experience with contemporary designs and is also very knowledgeable in practical ways for keeping the execution of extraordinary projects within a defined budget. Marek always maintains a positive attitude. In summary, he is a humble master of architecture.
Marek did a wonderful job for our house : our latest project with him is our new exterior facade for our house. His design is unique and so modern, we love it! Every detail is very precise and gives a real plus on the global looking of our home.
We hired Marek to completely remodel our mid-century modern house which needed extensive work both cosmetically and structurally. Our first contact was after we came across one of his past project, an Eichler located in Lafayette which we really like. Our experience working with Marek has been outstanding. He has been very engaged during all phases of the project working tirelessly to find the best solutions. Marek is very creative and has always been able to suggest great design while working within our budget. He is very responsive and passionate about his work. We love our house and Marek has been instrumental in this successful transformation. We highly recommend Marek.
Marek helped me with architecture and interior design of my house in Tahoe. He had brilliant ideas that were well grounded in reality. Working with the contractor was not a problem. Overall I was very satisfied and would definitely recommend Marek to my friends.
