Since founding DSDG Architects in Sarasota, Florida in 2001, Mark Sultana has focused on cultivating excellence in all aspects of the business – design, execution, personnel and professionalism. Mark and DSDG clients and staff collaborate to bring vision to reality on a consistent, timely and award-winning basis. From initial conceptualization through materials, systems and detail specification, Mark and his team work hand in hand with their clients to constantly evolve and improve projects to realize their vision, work within the budget and manage build timelines to successful project completion. Mark’s hands-on approach to architecture extends to his personal life as well - he has designed and built five of his own homes to date and each build has expanded his empathy and understanding of a client’s needs. Having this understanding upfront in the initial design process allows DSDG to develop projects with minimal change orders and post-design modifications, on-time and on-budget. Following receiving his degree in Architecture in 1993 from the New York Institute of Technology Mark poured his foundation and heart into Sarasota, establishing his career and family here. He has served as president of the Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and board chair of InStride Therapy and is an active member in the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards and Florida Green Building Coalition. He has two young children and in his free time enjoys getting on the water with them boating and fishing. DSDG’s work and awards verify Mark’s ongoing commitment to excellence in architecture for over two decades – they consistently earn the trust of their commercial and residential clients in pursuing timeless architectural excellence in form and function.

What our clients say
  • DSDG is an amazing firm especially due to Mark Sultana and his creative team. They created a perfect home for my husband and me and understood exactly what we desired for our lifestyle …I would recommend them to design your dream home.


    Caryl Kaplan | Client
  • Mark Sultana designed a beautiful modern home to our specifications on time and on budget. He was flexible to make changes we wanted during the design process but always balanced our requests with the design aesthetic. This resulted in a house that was both beautiful and functional to our requirements. Mark has always been easy to work with from design through construction administration including collaboration with our builder. As a result the construction phase is running smoothly and in budget. I would definitely recommend Mark.


    Bruce Beckstein | Client
  • I recently completed a new home designed by DSDG. The construction of the house over the last 10 months went very much according to plan. The house was built on time and within our original budget. The original architectural plan was extremely thorough and detailed helping us avoid expensive change orders while building. I would highly recommend DSDG for a new custom residence.

  • Mark was absolutely outstanding! He listened to what I was looking for and to how I lived, he studied all the information and idea books I sent to him, and then presented amazing layouts and concepts for me to choose from. He was open and receptive to changes, and all of this while staying within my budget in his design! During the construction phase, Mark was always available to create solutions for any questions that arose, and worked closely with the builders when necessary. Working with DSDG was a delight! Thanks Mark & team!
