John & Avril Ryan
We purchased a ten year old MDS designed house in 2016 and, although we were not involved in its design or planning, we are delighted with the house and its design. The setting is beautiful, the house solidly built and the design perfect. Apart from a guest’s bedroom, the house is on one level with French doors to most rooms and this creates an open and airy feeling. The rooms are spacious and flow from one to another and most guests refer to the house as a resort as it gives that relaxed impression.
We engaged Mark to advise on some minor alterations and his advice was invaluable. He seems able to combine the skills of creating a solid and beautiful looking house with those that understand how a house should work.

We engaged Mark Wilson and team at MDS to re-clad and enhance (to a high-spec build) our home at Coatesville - the project grew a lot bigger than originally expected - yes, the dreaded leaky home issues. The project turned into a major renovation. As our home was pulled apart, MDS suggested some internal modifications - walls pulled out, walls relocated; bathrooms and kitchen completely rebuilt. The result was a quality desirable family home. When we put it on the market early 2014 it sold in less than a week.
Mark Wilson, MDS, and the builder, Henry Dunham Building, made the project easy for us. They worked seamlessly with the Council and streamlined the whole process; the Council Inspector actually complimented us on our team and said that it was a pleasure to work with such professional people.
Mark listened to us, provided us with fresh ideas and really clever solutions. He project managed this renovation and kept the stress to a minimum. Mark has very high standards and will not accept anything less which took all the pressure off us.
We have heard from contractors that it is uncommon for clients to use the same architect a second time - we have no such hesitation, and to put proof to this statement we have again engaged MDS to design and project manage our beautiful home on Campbells Bay - a long term dream of ours which is almost complete. The design features and detail are exquisite; it takes our breathe away each time we visit the site.
It would be both a pleasure and an honour to recommend MDS to prospective clients.
