PREVIOUS CLIENTS

What Our Clients and Colleagues Are Saying

Janet StarrHomeowner

I recommend Mark Ward as an exemplary architect, one who works well with a team. Mark brought his creativity, knowledge and experience to this project. It was his kindness, warmth and easy-to-be-with style that led to a great collaboration and a close relationship, a person we are delighted to recommend as a professional, and one we call a friend.

Taylor KnightCrimson Wine Group

Mark was a true pleasure to work with on The Estates Wine Room. This was a unique project for Crimson Wine Group, a jump into a business concept and city where we had very little prior experience. Mark was a thoughtful partner from the beginning, and guided our constantly-evolving team through every step of the process, always with our objectives and vision in mind. We were extremely pleased with the ultimate result - a tasting room and retail space that is uniquely striking and communicated our brand values - a place where we are proud to showcase our wines.

Gabriel QuijadaSchuchart Construction/Dow

A remodel we recently completed with Upward is an example of just how successful a project can be when the client, architect and contractor really work together as a team. Mark's design talent speaks for itself, but he is also a good steward of his client's investment. He makes a persuasive case when the best materials and craftsmanship are truly valuable, and with those resources he has the skill and experience to create beautiful spaces and atmospheres. He guides the team, effectively throughout both the design and construction process, and the result is something everyone can be proud of.

Kim and Bryan KarrickScratch Distillery

We knew after the first meeting with Mark's team that this was a group of people that could understand what our company was about and what we hopes to convey with our architectural design - as an extension of our brand. Mark navigated regulatory concerns, led planning efforts of our various systems, and organized our interviewing and bid negotiating process with our contractor. We found the right company for our project - and we're so happy to recommend Mark Ward for all of your design, architectural and project management needs.
