"After 30 years of practicing architecture, I undoubtedly became a better architect after I started building my own projects, painting abstracts and welding sculpture."
Mark W. Canada, A.I.A., believes that the best architectural solutions derive from clear communication and equitable concerns for value – whether personal, collective or economic. The architect is in the unique position of instilling such values through his work, thus, his responsibility to the client, the community and the environment is set to task.

In 2009 I fell in love with a house that Mark Canada had designed twenty years earlier and purchased it . Several years later when I decided to downsize and move to my ranch I hired him to design a house for me from an existing partially built barn. I had never built a house before and he made the project fun and exciting. I could have never envisioned all the innovative ideas and design of the project, it far exceeded my high expectations. All my clients fall in love with what he has done. He is a remarkable talent, a calm , guiding force and a joy to work with.
Mark Canada designed a Medical office and a home on Lake Travis; both in Austin TX. Both projects were beautifully designed and built and Mark was a pleasure to work with. He paid great attention to detail and skillfully guided me to incorporate features I would not have started with, but loved in the finished product. Mark did a superb job.
Working with Mark Canada to create my dream home has truly been an amazing experience. The creative process Mark led us through in the designing phase allowed me to really put myself in the space and see what was functional and what gave me the feeling I was seeking in being home. He gave us all the support we needed and it has been one of the most educational endeavors I have ever undertaken. Many thanks to Mark for helping us create a home that is all ways, truly our own.
Mark Canada of Mark Canada Architects built my mother’s house in Westlake near Austin, Texas. The house was absolutely magical. The modern, open style was like nothing I had ever seen before and it was a perfect home for entertaining. The house definitely had a very upscale look and feel, yet was still comfortable for living and entertaining. When it came time to build a reception hall for my Hill Country wedding venue outside of Austin, Mark immediately came to mind. His modern yet elegant style fit in perfectly with the location and feel of the venue, and I could not be more pleased with his work. Since that project I have hired him for several other projects on the property, including building a home and loggia. He has expanded his many skills and has also helped with building a memorial garden, vineyard, outdoor wedding park and beer garden. Each project has been an absolute success and I look forward to working with Mark well into the future! I would highly recommend his work to anyone interested in a high-quality, modern and unique design, whether it be for a venue, home or outdoor project.
