Our Story

Let’s Design Your Home

The Way That Works Best For You

Working with my client's needs in mind is what sets me apart. While architects often focus on what you should know about them and how they work, I believe that getting to know a client's needs and passions lead to greater success. I owe it to them and those who rely upon me, to be honest, to tell them what they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear.

a little bit about my 'Why'

Do it Right the First Time

Make the Greatest Impact

About Mark Eric Benner Architects

Time and money are two of our most precious resources. When considering a large project, like the design of a new home, doing it right the first time returns dividends.

My Specialties

Today's homes can be complex and the more that they respond to our individual needs, the more challenging their design becomes. To help navigate these complexities, I offer my clients a broad range of services and tools to help communicate effective solutions.

Creative Design

Designs must be greater than the sum of their parts to balance the equations of space and budget.

Quality Assurance

Because we automate drawing documentation, we minimize errors and spend more time in design, where value is created.


Comfort and economy are only two of the benefits of pursuing a sustainable program for one's home, we can also seek a lighter footprint on the earth.

Very early on

I knew there was a

better way to design homes

Architectural drawings have been developed as the best way possible to communicate designs. The design and construction industries are trained and practiced in their interpretation and application, a very specialized method of communication. When we ask our clients to make important, life-changing decisions using these drawings it is like asking them to do so in a foreign language. I believe that we owe them better methods on which to make these important decisions.

Making a Difference

For Those in Need

I am dedicated to working with Solid Rock Carpenters and Appalachian Service Project in support of communities in need. Together, we engage dedicated volunteers in the building of high-quality and affordable homes in areas suffering from natural disasters and economic strife.
