Mark was born in Columbus, Ohio. After graduating from The Ohio State University’s Knowlton School of Architecture in 1998 he was awarded the UCLA Presidential Fellowship, where he earned the prestigious AIA Scholastic Award. Upon completion of his degree, Mark went on to work for the internationally recognized firm of Moore Ruble Yudell. While there he worked as a project designer on a wide variety of building types and scales.
Since the founding of Bittoni Architects in 2005, the office has grown from a local design practice to a thriving firm with projects on three continents. The practice has been responsible for a wide range of work, from multifamily housing, commercial retail, offices and workplaces to private homes.
In addition to managing his own practice, Mark was a lecturer at the University of Southern California where he taught in the core undergraduate design studios. Mark has been a guest critic at the Ohio State University, Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico City, and the Savannah College of Art and Design. He strongly believes that a successful design practice is one in which the professional world is continually coupled with academic endeavors.

Bittoni Architects‘ Selected Projects
Located on a steep hill of Santa Monica mountains, this residence overlooks the beautiful views of Malibu. The site is a pot full of potential for the building that enhances the views of the majestic city right in front. The two-storey building is actually split into three levels. The wooden slats lead to the entrance which is in the middle of the house. It is the main connection to the upper and lower level of the house that consists of separated living areas and private areas such as bedrooms.
The bay street remodelling of a beach bungalow was performed on a bungalow that was built in 1913 and relocated later in 1920. The street presence of the bungalow is preserved inherently to remain in its original expression maintaining the street presence. The interiors though is changed to accommodate the contemporary needs and aesthetics along with the comfort.
Crestwood house is located on a higher plane than the city giving it an advantage of the contours. It is a remodel of the mid-century house. The project is a highlight of contemporary aesthetics merged into the modern architecture of the mid-century. The project thoroughly explores the idea of indoor/outdoor living which is a typical of Southern California. The atmospheric connection is established in detail that was offered by the altitude of the site.
