Mark Macco, AIA, NCARB, is an innovative architect with more than two decades of experience designing high-end residential and commercial projects, managing them efficiently from inception to completion.
Based in Jacksonville Beach, Fla., Mark Macco Architects is best known for a passion for perfection, an eye for detail, and a penchant for collaborating with clients to create memorable and purposeful structures.
The firm's expansive portfolio demonstrates his ability to develop varied, custom design solutions. He is equally comfortable creating a modern oceanfront masterpiece, a contemporary office building, or a mixed-use community center.
One of Jacksonville Beach's premier residential architects, Macco takes a holistic approach to design, and places great emphasis on a purposeful procession through space.
He believes in thoughtful repetition of design elements, in intentional points of interest, and the power of precise sight lines, giving the eye a beautiful place to rest at every turn. He uses his design skills to evoke an emotional response, creating spaces that are warm, inviting and serene.
“I make sure all the elements of space, lighting, design and materials work in harmony to create a total experience,” he says. “I believe good design should be cohesive, consistent and coherent.”
In addition to his great sense of aesthetics, Macco places enormous emphasis on sustainability and efficiency in all his design projects, staying perfectly on trend with his work and understanding profoundly that the essence of good design is a marriage of simplicity and elegance.
“Each project is different and that is how I approach my work,” he notes. “But what doesn’t change is my devotion to customer service. My job is to listen to my clients, to get to know them and understand how they live and what they need. People want to be heard.”
It is this client-centric focus that enables Macco to produce dramatic yet purposeful design solutions. “Our philosophy is simple,” he adds. “Satisfy our customers completely – mind, body and soul.”
