In the summer of 2001 both Mark and Maurie moved to Texas. Maurie, a Texas native, was returning home from grad school at Clemson. Mark, a Midwestern SIU graduate, wanted the sunshine of the south and a change of pace. They met in an HR meeting at an architecture firm, having both started that very same day. They worked together, fell in love, and eventually were married. Later Mark branched off to start his own architecture design firm. A couple of years and a couple of kids later Maurie decided to team up with Mark's firm full-time. The Gray partnership was formed and M-Gray Architecture was born.
From concept to creation...
Dream it: An opportunity for us to meet with you to understand your needs and wishes, while gathering thoughts on design and style that will help inspire the process.
Develop it: We convert the sketches into precise hand-drawn plans called schematic drawings, then into digital computer renderings to further develop the overall massing and exterior design.
Refine it: Design drawings continue to take shape and develop into a detailed construction set of drawings.
Build it: The final stage is construction, where your dreams become a reality. We continue to work closely with you, your interior designer and contractor to guarantee your vision comes to life in your new home.
