We are a team of custom home designers and draftsmen that specializes in residential design work. We’ve designed 100's of new custom homes, additions and remodels; and have drafted even more. We work in partnership with home builders, homeowners and structural engineers, with the end result being a set of construction drawings (blueprints).

We help clients from different parts of the country design their dream home from the Florida Panhandle, to the Northeast and beyond. Every lot, every view, and every client is different, and so is every home we’ve designed. Once we’ve discussed with a client what they're looking for in a house, we take all their comments, links, and visuals, and blend them together into something just for them.

Our design experience will guide you through decisions and choices that you may otherwise not consider. We can see possibilities, find solutions and anticipate your needs— even when you have difficulty expressing them. It's our goal to simplify the process and make the experience enjoyable.

We have a reputation for great design, listening intently to our client’s desires and doing our best to communicate effectively. We think you'll find us very easy to work with.

I’m available most days between 2:00-5:00.

Over 60 five-star reviews on Houzz. Here are a few:

Green Team Design was a recommendation from our builder so there was a certain comfort level we had at the very beginning of the process. Our comfort level with GTD just got stronger from there. Mark was great to work with. He had an intuitive sense of what would work and what would not work as well with every idea my wife and I came up with. Sometimes my wife and I were all over the board with ideas and wanting this and wanting that. Mark was very patient and guided us in a consultative way that made us feel so much a part of the process. Mark had a way of even making us feel like his ideas were ours. We almost felt like we were the designers. Mark's talent is very impressive. At several points throughout the process Mark would create a video that would take an idea and bring it to life just to see if it was what we were thinking before he incorporated it into the full drawings. Watching an area of our house be drawn before our eyes in a video was very helpful. This highlighted areas we were thinking about and going back and forth with to show us what it would look like before working it into the larger design. We highly recommend Mark and his team and would definitely use them again.Read More

Mark was easy to work with. We had a good idea of what we wanted and he helped make the changes we needed that we could not figure out on our own. His turn around time was quick and he is responsive.Read More

Mark helped us with a sophisticated custom design. His attention to detail was excellent and he was able to deliver exactly what we had in mind.Read More

I hired Mark as my architect to design my dream beach home on St. George Island, Florida. I was not looking for a cookie cutter home and Mark was able to create a very unique and contemporary modern beach house. Mark listened to my "wish list" and developed plans that exceeded my expectations. Mark was able to include everything I wanted (luxurious kitchen, oversized master bathroom, chefs walkin pantry , expansive porches, coffee bar, floating stairs etc.)while staying within my construction square footage budget. The outside of the house is just as beautiful as the inside. The home is designed to capture the beautiful ocean views and natural daylight that makes St. George Island a tropical paradise. Mark's architectural expertise has resulted in creating a home that I will be proud to call home. Thanks, Mark!Read More

Mark did an excellent job in translating our rough floor plan sketches into finished drawings. I would highly recommend him for any design work. He was easy to work with and was very responsive.Read More
