“In everything it does, the firm embodies the future of residential design.” R.M., Via Houzz


We like to think our reputation speaks for itself. But don’t take our word for it.

“Having worked with CARNEMARK in multiple projects now I can attest to their professionalism, individual care, and commitment to do things ‘the right way’. We started out with a vision for a project and through the process have truly become part of the CARNEMARK family.”

C.R., McLean, VA

“It is such a pleasure to work with CARNEMARK. Each individual involved in our project is invested personally in the outcome. They are professional, caring, warm, and experts at everything they do. They are creative, practical, incredibly detailed oriented with standards of excellence.”

D.I., Reston, VA

“I have worked with a lot of architects and contractors, both at work and at my home, and I have never met any company as professional and pleasant as all the people at CARNEMARK. They keep their commitments and time schedule…Their detailed finish schedules and weekly meetings keep everyone on-track so that the job can finish on time.”

M. + D.H., Great Falls, VA

“CARNEMARK more than lived up to their reputation. They were fantastic to work with. Every detail was thought about in advance so the design and build process went very smoothly...The result was a gorgeous kitchen that exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend using CARNEMARK.”

R.G., Washington, DC

“Architectural Ceramics has worked with CARNEMARK for many years. Our team really enjoys working with them because they are fun to work with, very professional and have a delightful range of ideas and concepts. We highly recommend CARNEMARK if you are looking for a design build firm to remodel or renovate!”

Architectural Ceramics, colleague

“The design is perfect for us. We are happy with the product selections. The lengthy design process was really helpful so we could avoid any ‘We should have...’ moments after the facts.”

B.C., Washington, DC

“We have been deeply impressed by CARNEMARK’S professionalism from the earliest design and contractual standpoint. The comparison between them and other contractors we have previously dealt with is night and day. Their follow-up and attention to detail is truly one-of-a kind.”

D.B., Potomac Falls, MD

“We moved to a CARNEMARK renovated apartment 16 years ago! It is still terrific and they have fixed any problems we have had. Reliable, courteous, talented!”

C.B., Alexandria, VA

“CARNEMARK designed and implemented two major renovations for our home. We had used other contractors in the past, but they are the first ones we ever hired back for a second project. We are already thinking about our third with CARNEMARK!”

C.H., Washington, DC

“We were happy that CARNEMARK was familiar with many of the newer, more environmentally friendly building products … We have very much enjoyed working with CARNEMARK’S employees. They are always ready to listen and fix or change anything to ensure client satisfaction.”

J.D. + E.L., Falls Church, VA

“Frank Sis managed to take a rather chaotic beginning to my project and make it efficient, well-run and to-specifications, both during construction and in results. He obviously cares a great deal that the finished product be of highest quality and that the client be completely satisfied. It was a pleasure to work with him!”

G.T. + T.T., Washington, DC

“Our project was finished on time and on budget. We‘re very happy with the result. The hallmark of the company is integrity.”

C.G., McLean, VA

“Extremely pleased with the quality of the work performed on this job and their previous work for us. Highly professional and conscientious, both in the design phase and in construction. Would gladly recommend them to others.”

J.R., Arlington, VA

“We asked CARNEMARK not merely to update our space, but to transform it. They did so. It designed to meet our needs and wants and the limitations of the space, and gave us a more open, comfortable, and efficient living area.”

J.S., Washington, DC

“Twelve years ago CARNEMARK designed and built a beautiful modern kitchen for us, respecting the scale and values of our midcentury modern modest house. They guaranteed their work, and they have provided consistent and cheerful assistance since then. Their record keeping is wonderful, too. A small pendant glass light fixture recently cracked and [they] found a replacement part in a day!”

K.R., Bethesda, MD

“We love our prize winning master bathroom. Jonas created the design with our taste, colors and lifestyle in mind. The workmanship was impeccable, especially the tile work. We did go over budget, but the additional work and higher quality materials all contribute to the stellar results.”

K.P., Bethesda, MD

“This is a top drawer firm — they sweat the details and follow through on them and not a day is wasted. Having an onsite CARNEMARK representative throughout the entire project to manage all the details and subcontractors is particularly helpful.”

J.K., Washington, DC

“A superb cleaning job! Not only at our place, but around the hallways of the building. Neighbors are pleased!…CARNEMARK delivers a very good quality, professional and on time project…We only had very good experiences with all that worked and work here.”

M.R. + R.R., Alexandria, VA

“Their teamwork, organization, and leadership throughout the project were most impressive…Having had projects done by other reputable architects and contractors (on my house) I was truly amazed as well as pleased by how much better (and nicer!) CARNEMARK is. Your skill, courtesy and organization are a winning combination.”

N.G., Bethesda, MD

“The final product is just what we wanted and it has been a pleasure using the kitchen and showing it off…I particularly appreciated all the efforts to keep the job site clean and the thoughtfulness and consideration everyone showed to the residents of our floor and building.”

B.P. + M.P., Washington, DC

“Excellent execution overall…Very high level of service and professionalism—which is what we expect and why we worked with them.”
