Client Testimonials

Mark Grisafe recently did an exterior home remodel for us which is absolutely beautiful.  We continue to receive numerous compliments from neighbors and friends. Because we were so pleased with the result, we have asked him to do an interior remodel and landscape redesign as well. We are converting from traditional to modern interior design.  Based on our request he has designed some unique spaces, such as an outdoor room, a model train layout and an aviary.  We are also planning to "green" our property with solar panels and drought-resistant plants. Given the large scope of the project, we have decided to tackle the construction in phases.  As Phase One nears completion, a new and exciting aesthetic is unfolding! We are impressed with Mark's professionalism and exceptional talent.  He has patiently and good-naturedly seen us through periods of indecisiveness and design changes.  He is personable and an absolute delight to work with.  We look forward to his on-going work on our project and would not hesitate to recommend him to others."

Mark Grisafe met the challenges of working in a historic district and delivered a beautiful home. He listened to our thoughts and designed just what we wanted: a home that was both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Additionally, he was a pleasure to work with and always friendly and open to our thoughts. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an architect."

M Grisafe Architects is talented and persistent in their trade to provide sound advice for a project. That persistence does not interfere, however, with their ability to be receptive to ideas and input from those they are designing for. In addition to a cooperative effort between all parties involved (my wife, me and MG Architects) in my project MG Architects, in particular, took a very complicated addition and flawlessly made it appear as if it was the original structure. I have received countless compliments regarding how beautifully the old has been married to the new. This point was one of the most important to me. MG Architects listened closely and well exceeded my expectations. When the dust settled on the Malatesta project this year it was clear that M Grisafe Architects performed above what is required on all fronts. Thanks for a great job!"

Original, consultative and dedicated all three qualities we can say that MG Architects illustrates when taking on a project from start to finish. Even after we had hired our contractor, MG Architects would stop by the house to monitor the project and provide instrumental feedback. Their dedication to their work is illustrated to us every time we open our front door and see our New Home! Thank you MG Architects!"

We had a general idea of what we wanted in a remodel. MG Architects listened to us and then created a design that was exactly what we needed and more beautiful than we could have imagined."

Working with M Grisafe Architects has been an absolute pleasure. Specifically, we found that their professionalism, creativity and attention to detail made them easy to work with and an ideal project partner for the Alpert JCC.  In addition, their excellent follow-through and overall responsiveness to our questions, requests and changes ensured a very positive outcome for our project.  We would not hesitate in turning to M Grisafe Architects for our future projects or recommending them to others.  "

I have worked with Mark Grisafe on several projects which included the design, permitting and construction of tenant improvements.  In each case I have been impressed with both his professional ability and concern for his customer.  His design work is excellent.  He has established, or is able to establish,  good relations with various levels of City government which enable him to obtain rapid approvals in a cooperative permitting process.  Finally, and perhaps most important, he is unfailingly available to meet with City officials, contractors, tenants and landlords and contributes constructively to a process which can at times be frustrating.  I can recommend him without reservation, would be happy to do so at any time and shall use his services in the future."
