“Each project response is unique, as it must reflect the local character, culture and spirit, but it must also cater to the user as a memorable experience as well as a place for shelter.”


About John

With a gift for math, John discovered that architecture provides him the opportunity to combine his talent with his creative passion. He enjoys hospitality and commercial architecture because each project is so diverse, driven by the geographic location, local culture and the client’s vision. “It is personally rewarding to work with the client  to bring their vision to life, while having the opportunity to travel the world working on beautiful destinations where I know guests will spend time relaxing and enjoying themselves,” reveals John. “I also like the challenge of being involved with a wide variety of projects that vary in scale from intimate low-rise resorts to urban high-rise buildings.” John has more than 37 years of design experience leading large-scale project developments and has been instrumental in creating notable projects around the world within the multi-use, multi-family, hotel and resort, healthcare and corporate/commercial building sectors.
