Ballard + Mensua Architecture

Seth M. Ballard, AIA, NCARB
5185 MacArthur Blvd. N.W., Suite 370
Washington, D.C. 20016

Q: What sets Ballard + Mensua apart from the competition?

A: As a full-service architecture firm specializing in unique and custom homes and renovations, Ballard + Mensua Architecture offers far more than the standard architecture firm. Our refined process is actually what our clients appreciate as much as our design talent. Our process is designed to allow our clients to make all decisions on a cost-informed and design-option-informed basis.

Q: What services do you offer your clients?

A: Ballard + Mensua not only offers architectural services, but all aspects of design in a single firm, from interior design and decorating to landscape design, and more. With a broad network of the top builders and vendors that work under our guidance, we offer full-service project management from concept to completion. As a result, we can provide all the positives of design/build, while maintaining the competitive bidding and checks and balances of a traditional client/architect/builder relationship. Further, we specialize in highly detailed drawings that are partly enabled by our in-depth understanding of construction. I only hire architects that have broad construction experience working in the field.

Q: What should prospective customers know about you?

A: As an Arlington native who attended McKinley, Swanson and Yorktown, I understand the local market and how it has changed over the years. Ballard + Mensua is proud to have won Best Architect in the Best of Arlington readers survey and we are counting on your votes again this year.
