Ratings & Reviews

After talking with a number of different architects in the Tucson area, viewing open houses where the name of the architect was listed in the house description, and getting recommendations from realtors who were familiar with the top architects in the Tucson area, we chose to let Marc Soloway design our house. Since there were a number of different lots we were considering, we asked Marc to give us his impression of them and he willingly spent a considerable amount of time walking the lots with us and identifying the ones that he felt were best and all before receiving any money or a signed contract from us. Once a lot was selected and purchased, his methodical approach to designing a house plan worked very well and in the end, we ended up with a design that was exactly what we were looking for and within the budget we had stipulated. Further, Marc's creativity and ability to incorporate interesting, attractive architectural features into both the interior and exterior of the home are already garnering praise from neighbors even though the house is only partially completed. Without question, the entire process was much easier, and enjoyable, because of Marc's personality and willingness to make modifications as issues arose. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Marc Soloway to someone looking for an architect.

Work Description:

Designed our custom home and patio.

I would highly recommend Soloway-Designs. Marc Soloway and his staff were totally professional as well as creative, responsive, and competent. They were invaluable in guiding us through the entire design/building process for our custom built home. Marc added several design touches which added style without adding cost. He was thoroughly familiar with all building codes as well as with our individual HOA requirements. Marc went above and beyond our expectations by meeting with the HOA committees on our behalf, and in supervising the entire bidding process. Marc's personal style is one of a calm, attentive professional who only wants what the client wants. He is out to make the client happy, not promote his own reputation or architectural preferences.

From concept to detailed blueprints

It was our distinct pleasure to work with Marc Soloway in the design of our new home. Marc was introduced to us by a real estate agent who had used him previously. We met Marc at a lot we were considering and discussed our overall desires. Based on this, Marc created a concept and vision for our project that told us he absolutely “got us”. Marc referred to the ultimate design as a “Soft-Contemporary Southwestern”. Marc is incredibly well-organized, soft-spoken and customer-oriented. He was always timely with his response to our questions and issues. He is naturally even-tempered and a good natured individual. His honesty and integrity is above reproach. His design work reflected our likes and wants, as opposed to his. Marc assisted us in a bidding process between three builders whom we selected with Marc’s help. The plans that he and his team put together were thorough and accurate. We are currently several months into the construction project, and the Soloway team continues to be involved, interested and helpful. We would hire Marc Soloway again in a heartbeat.

Work Description:

Designed a home for us in Tucson, AZ

We hired Soloway Designs, Inc. to design a home for us in 2005. We worked with Marc Soloway for over a year to make sure our design perfect. Coming from the Midwest, we questioned several aspects of the design that Marc suggested. Thank God we listened to him because living int he Southwest is completely different fro living in the Midwest. His suggestions turned out to be very important in the design of our home. It took two years to build the home, which was completed in 2008. We continue to wake up every morning and Thank God (and Marc Solloway) for the unbelievably beautiful home we live in.

Marc was exceptionally educated on what designs work in the Southwest, especially w/ our extreme weather conditions. He was the ultimate professional, had so many creative concepts and ideas, and was a delight to work with. He is truly a genius at Southwest architectural design. We have maintained a close friendship with Marc and highly recommend Soloway Designs. I think you will find that anyone who has ever worked w/ Marc will give him the same outstanding grade that we give him...an A++++++.
