We are so appreciative of John Gower’s expertise, creativity and communication skills. The process of designing our new home was very collaborative and enjoyable. His communication skills were especially valuable because we lived out-of-province and much of the planning was done with creative use of email, the internet and an interactive architectural program. He took the time to help us develop an inspired vision for what this home could be for our family. He then designed a great plan for how it would integrate with the natural environment on a complicated site. His creative spark added a beauty to the interior spaces beyond what we had imagined. Part of that beauty is the functional, multi-purpose use of space, and the knowledge that energy efficiency was a core value for the home. He had a great working relationship with our builder, which helped maintain the integrity of the plan through to completion. We would highly recommend John and his work to anyone considering his services.
