For over 40 years, Marcatects has been a leading architecture and design firm based in North County San Diego. Our work spans throughout California and the Western United States offering a wide range of architectural services to both public and private clients. We specialize in K-12 education, commercial, automotive, and multi-family architecture. At Marcatects, our collaborative design approach is client focused. From day one we are committed to working with our clients to provide integrative designs and strategic solutions to generate high-performance buildings which are not only beautiful but timeless. Our design philosophy was founded on the basis that great design can not only transform how people think and feel but also how they respond to and interact with the built environment. By providing high-quality design we create not only beautiful, but functional, sustainable spaces for our clients.


Taking a holistic approach, we listen carefully and engage completely, to learn your specific needs and champion your vision every step of the way, ensuring your projects success relevant to your criteria.


We were early adopters and expert artisans of the BIM system (Building Information Modeling). With BIM, we can predict the cost of a project before it begins with accuracy up to 3% of the actual costs. Using innovative software like Revit as well as finding and testing new, up and coming technologies helps us be at the forefront of the industry


For more than 40+ years, principals Joseph Marca and Mark Bankert, along with their team, have combined imaginative aesthetics, technical innovation and experienced management skills. One of the leading firms in the commercial architectural space in San Diego, we have earned the maturity and confidence to bring your vision into being.


Exceptional spaces are the product of passion, imagination, and vision. While they may appear effortless and timeless, they are the result of diligence and precision. We understand that we’re not just building environments that stand the test of time, we’re building timeless relationships.
