“We have been working with Jon Dick and his staff at Archaeo Architects a little over a year now, but we feel like we’ve known him for much longer – in fact, Paul fell in love with an Archaeo house 8 years before we met Jon. When we started looking for architects and ran across Archaeo’s website, we immediately gravitated towards Jon’s designs; it was evident that we were destined to collaborate.
Collaboration is fundamental to Jon’s approach – he has encouraged our input, and we have seen our ideas regarding both form and function get incorporated, assimilated, enhanced, and woven into the fundamental design of our new home. Jon has been careful to address the land and associated natural features, so that our home will harmonize with our surroundings.
From the very beginning, Jon has taken a personal interest in understanding our needs, our desires, our lifestyle – so that our new home will be a reflection of who we are and how we interact with the world. Early on, he took us on a tour to see homes he designed and meet his clients. We experienced the beautiful, thoughtful details in each place, heard the delight as the owners discussed the design process and their homes, and witnessed the friendships Jon and his clients still share. The tour, which included an overnight out of town, was both illuminating and really fun.
Jon’s holistic approach combines his personal engagement with us, smart business practices, superior architectural skills, and his unique combination of imagination, artistry, and innovation. Jon and his staff are wonderfully personable, professional, positive, hard-working; they are creative in finding ways to incorporate our ideas and address any challenges that arise. They are a small team who work well together and go the extra mile for their clients; they are truly delightful to work with.
Although we are early in construction, we are very excited to see our new home come to life. We are confident that our trust has been well-placed with Jon Dick and his staff at Archaeo Architects. We have no doubt our relationship with Jon will be long and rewarding!“
