Create Your Dream Home with Candelaria Design Associates

In Architecture & Design by Suzanne Koch

Looking to construct your dream home from the ground up? Founded in 1999, Arizona-based Candelaria Design is a team of architects, designers and support staff who collaborate with the client to create a perfectly custom-designed home to fit all the needs of the homeowner.

After spending 18 years as a founding partner of CCBG Architects in Phoenix, Mark Candelaria, AIA ventured out on his own to begin his own journey. Since then, Mark has built a powerhouse of a team that was named the “Master of the Southwest” in 2005 by Phoenix Home and Garden Magazine. Assisting clients with their dream homes, Candelaria has created homes with a variety of style including old world, traditional, transitional, Spanish colonial, rural Mediterranean, contemporary, mountain retreat and ranch hacienda.

Need an example of just how great Candelaria is at designing homes? Most recently the firm was selected as the architect for the HGTV Smart Home 2017 located in Scottsdale, Arizona. In partnership with Arizona-builder Eagle Luxury Properties, the team was able to design and construct the home in just six months, with the design alone taking a short two months. The 3,300-square-foot three-bedroom home features high-tech gadgets, a three-car garage, a wet bar, home office, pantry and laundry area, along with a modern pool. Among the smart features, the home includes a tankless hot water heater, a residential power generator, high-end security system, state-of-the-art lighting system, wine bar and more.
