Hi, I’m John.

I work with the MHK team in Naples. MHK is lightning in a bottle — the design talent at the firm combined with Naples’ market and the beach resort vibe create a fantastic opportunity to create some truly exciting architecture. MHK is a great place to work because the people care about creating the best designs with the most cutting-edge technology available. I work hard to maintain a positive, supportive atmosphere in the studio, as I believe that makes for a strong team. I love designing homes because we have such strong feelings about where we live. I want my clients to know that when your home is not only comfortable, but also enriching and engaging, life is good.

When I’m not building beautiful homes, I have been known to build a few small wooden rowing boats, and I look forward to one day building a classic wooden boat with electric power.

Our Practice

Our goal is to help successful and visionary people build their dream home with a process that is more enjoyable than they ever thought it could be. That’s because we believe that architecture is all about the people who inhabit it. So we keep the human relationship central, both in the result and in the process along the way. We want to put the humanity back into architecture. We design for the way you live, for the needs of your family, and on a timeline that doesn’t mean you have to put your life on hold.

We’re committed to the historic craft and practice of architecture, but always driven by and responsive to the wishes of the client. It’s not that we don’t have strong convictions about architecture itself — just ask — but the joy for us is in helping our clients realize their vision.

So you won’t find any black turtle-neck attitude around here. That’s so last century. We bring the sophistication without the stuffiness. No, you’ll find a team ready to work hard, have fun, and create buildings as diverse as our clients’ dreams.

Our Portfolios

Because MHK is client-focused, our work is stylistically diverse, drawing from the lifestyles of our clients and the regions in which they live.
