John Dvorsack, AIA

Focusing exclusively on private, single-family residences, I established my practice with the goal of providing high quality, creative design while assuring a pleasant collaborative experience for my clients. This goal is only achievable with experience, patience, commitment to the project and attention to detail. To that end, I have built my reputation by personally overseeing each project from conception to completion.

Permitting, designing and building a home can be a daunting and complex undertaking for the homeowner. If trusted with the design of your home, I will work diligently to bring your design ideas to life, and strive to make the process enjoyable and rewarding.

"Working with John is simply a joy! From the moment we sat down with John to discuss the house we wanted to build, John's professionalism, creativity, and enthusiasm for the task at hand were apparent. One of the things that was most important to us during the building process was John's ability and willingness to work well with others on the project. The contractor, John, and our decorator all worked in a collaborative fashion in order to get to the best result. We can't say enough about how we think his open approach led us to the great house we now have. We would highly recommend using John for any job."

– Heather & Rob S.

"Our experience with John Dvorsack was uniformly excellent. His technical and creative skills are exceptional and he is collaborative and innovative by nature. He is attentive to alternatives and cost implications and is open minded, accessible and timely. We recommend him with enthusiasm.”

– Marie & Mike A.

"John is a consummate professional who strives to ensure his clients are satisfied with the finished product. He distinctively combines creativity with expert architectural design to produce unique concepts. Of note, John met every deadline set and stayed involved in our project from initial blueprints to well after our house was built. He is, quite frankly, the best architect we’ve worked with during the past 20 years.”

– Chris & Eric K.

"I hired John for a project renovating a vacation home. One of the two or three best business decisions I have ever made. At first, I believed only a few changes could be accomplished given the limitations of the house and the site. However, working with John opened my eyes to a much broader array of possibilities that I had never envisioned. He listened to our wishes and plans on how we envisioned using the place, then set about drawing up some concepts. What a world of difference! The result was amazing - functional, attractive, detailed, and complete. I would engage John Dvorsack again with no hesitation, and I would not even look for an alternate, so high is my confidence."

– Donna & John K.

"We hired John to design our new home in Falmouth. John's attention to detail was amazing. He thought of everything. He carefully integrated all of our wishes, situated the house perfectly on the lot and designed every detail within our home. Beyond the initial design, John provided surveillance over the construction process that gave us great comfort. He visited the project often and made appropriate adjustments and corrections to the builder. John exceeded our expectations and there is no doubt we would engage him again on any of our real estate needs."

– Barbara & Paul N.

"Working with John was and continues to be an absolute pleasure. His designs compliment their surroundings; have beautiful architectural features, as well as an individuality of their own where the client's personality shines through. He is constantly considering his client’s best interest throughout the construction process, both with his proactive planning for detailed designs, as well as his regular communication to clients. He is considerate of budgets and practical building practices which continue to make the construction process an enjoyment for all involved. Speaking as the builder, John has always made himself available for questions or clarifications, is easy to communicate with and knowledgeable about building practices and new products. Each project proves to be even more enjoyable than the last!"
