John is a joy to work with. Not only are his buildings beautiful, and organic, but they are functional as well. John is open to feedback and is always willing to simplify and streamline a design so that it feels good AND looks good! He will think creatively about the way a building should flow as it is used as a home / a space with people living in it. The cottages he designed for Tara Iti have a comfort factor, as well as a creative edge. The guests have given nothing but positive feedback regarding the design."cedar kreuscher - tara iti interiors & guest relations manager.
