The studio of John Maniscalco Architecture produces work based on two principles - creating livable, modern spaces and engaging clients in the design process. Our approach takes the particular needs, desires, and personality of each client and utilizes them to shape a unique architectural solution.
With a sensitivity to physical context, function, technology and economic factors, JMA produces architecture that is responsive, honest, and well-crafted. We focus on the fundamental elements of architecture: quality materials, careful consideration of space and light, and clarity of design from concept to detailing. Sustainability and renewable resources are integrated into every aspect of our design process, and shape our decision making from site placement to material specification. Through a highly collaborative and fluid process, we introduce our clients to possibilities through design, but their needs and desires are entirely reflected in what we do.
