Mark and Erin met in a very 21st century way, on Instagram. They were noticing each other’s design and 3D visualization posts, and one day Erin reached out and said “If you ever want to come work in Colorado, let me know.” And almost exactly six months later, Mark did just that.
Mark, or Markitect as Erin calls him, brings 33 years of architecture experience to Design Range. He specializes in residential projects and is a hands-on architect, visiting job sites frequently to check progress and be available for any questions.
In Mark’s own words: “It is an Architect’s task not to design a home for a client, but with them. The Homeowner is as much a part of the design process as the Architect. The Architect is simply the medium through which the Homeowner works to achieve. I listen to your visions, your concerns, and your desires as we work together to design your home. The qualities of Architecture that I hold dear are arrangement of spaces, scale of space and qualities of natural and artificial lighting. A satisfying measure of achievement is to see how a family uses the home. Whether you desire the timelessness of historical or the simplicity of contemporary Architecture, I will work with you and your ideas to achieve your vision.”
Erin provides the interior elements and business backbone of the company, bringing over 20 years of experience developing both her own business as well as businesses for others. Erin has been a speaker, panelist and design industry representative at international conferences including Trimble Dimensions, Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC), Autodesk University, SketchUp 3D Basecamp, American Institute of Architecture (AIA) and the International Builders Show (IBS). Erin’s favorite thing to talk about in the 3D design world is SketchUp’s Project Spectrum. This program introduces kids of all ages who are on the Autism Spectrum to 3D modeling. Having the opportunity to meet their summer campers, talk to them about working in 3D design, and especially seeing and exploring their work is one of Erin’s career highlights.
Both Markitect and Erin work in 3D to provide their clients the best vision of the final product. Design Range is focused on client-driven design. We put ego aside and let our skills do the talking.
We would love the opportunity to speak with you about your project.
