We have now moved in to our completed home and can honestly say that we wouldn’t change a thing. John’s design has maximised the benefits of our specific site. The design captures our views perfectly, shields us from the strong ocean winds and westerly sun. All this while providing an environment of abundant natural light and volume with-in a well considered and cohesive 3 dimensional building form. The different zones of the house works exactly as planned for our large family and internal and external living areas integrate extremely well.
After being recommended by a previous client, we enjoyed working with John and Simon through the design and documentation stages. John was very good at explaining the thinking behind bigger picture design ideas as well as more detailed areas of consideration. We feel he nailed our brief brilliantly and the project flowed on well from there.
John coordinated the planning approval process through council and then produced very detailed construction drawings which the builder really appreciated.
I would be very happy to recommend John Lewis Architects to prospective clients considering an architect designed residence.
