A sufficient house design integrates site, specific plan and space requirements, and facade/elevations.  To make a house great, John Henry imbues each work with an artist's view of composition and a technician's understanding of construction.  John has spent over 30 years creating evocative homes that not only 'live well' but are inspiring for the individual and family residing there.  

Having lived and traveled through Europe and the Middle East, John has been enchanted by the ancient world and educated in the Modern.  He holds a Master in Architecture from Texas A&M University, has accrued many awards locally and is recognized nationally and around the world.  Start here to create your Dream Home.

“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.”

What makes John Henry's creations so compelling is that every facade/elevation is drawn by hand, not by machine.  This includes Interior Architecture as well.  John recognizes that the greatest period designs were created without computers and that in order to imbue a house with soul, the soul of the architect must be revealed only by hand.

Final Plans are created on computer for accuracy and compatibility between consultants.
