For over 30 years John has been known for his rigorously simple architecture. His work includes private houses, sacred commissions, galleries, museums, hotels, ballet sets, yacht interiors and a bridge across a lake.

Whether a monastery, a house, a saucepan or a ballet, everything John’s design is traceable back to a consistent set of preoccupations with mass, volume, surface, proportion, junction, geometry, repetition, light and ritual. He’s known for saying, ‘It’s all architecture,’ meaning that even something as modest as a fork can become a vehicle for much broader ideas about how we live and what we value.

SABINA VILLAS

“At Sabina we’re doing something very special and different, creating a place on this beautiful island where people can feel part of a community, but also lose themselves in their surroundings. The feeling of being out in wild nature is exhilarating and I always knew I wanted to preserve something of this in the experience of inhabiting the architecture.”
