"Our goal is to create a home our clients hate to leave and are eager to return to; our objective is to enhance and improve the quality of their lives." – Brion Jeannette 

I have had the great pleasure of working with Brion Jeannette for over 25 years now. His attention to detail, innate understanding of the building process in implementing his timeless designs, and his continued involvement and availability throughout the building process makes my job in executing such designs in the field all that much easier. This collaborative energy between he as architect and I as the builder has allowed for an effortless flow in the on-site production of the countless dream homes he's known for having created. I always enter our projects together with an enthusiasm and comfort in knowing the final result will be architecturally sound and designed with the highest integrity with regard to the intended genre, period, style, and most importantly, the client's wishes. The ease with which Mr. Jeannette's team and mine work together is reflected in the timely manner in which we are able to provide the finished product, which of course is of great benefit to the client in more ways than one. I would recommend Brion and his entire team at Brion Jeannette Architecture to all those seeking sophisticated, well designed spaces that integrate the future residents and their ideas and values in a home design all their own that will stand the test of time and provide comfort, sanctuary, and timeless value in a world that's ever-changing and fickle. I'm very proud to say our working relationship has, much like Brion's designs, withstood the test of time.

We contacted Brion Jeannette to provide plans for our remodel, as he was the original architect of our home. Brion and his team, embraced our vision and incorporated our ideas helping us achieve our goal of turning our modern Mediterranean into a contemporary home with clean lines. We collaborated extensively, exchanging ideas until we came up with the final plan to transform the old into the new. Brion's knowledge and expertise, his understanding of the house, and his ability to incorporate our vision into his was extremely valuable. His team was easy to work with, patient, and kind. Their expertise provided for the foundation for our dream to become a reality and our remodeled home is everything we had hoped it would be.
