One of historys greatest architects was passionate that a home should have integrity to three fundamental issues: the site, the climate and the lifestyle of the inhabitants. John has expanded this philosophy to also include a deep compassion for the very specific needs of each and every client; be they stylistic, sustainability or budgetary goals. Each of the many custom homes and remodels which John Mink has personally designed in his career are unique and different. This is born of the philosophy that to be a good architect, one must possess design versatility and be a stellar listener. John begins each project with extensive notes, thoughts and ideas during development of the initial program for construction with the client. That background research is then taken to hand drawn pencil drawings born from the site, the climate and the lifestyle of the inhabitants, combined with John's unique empathy. In contrast to larger corporate firms, a unique aspect of Architectural Partnership, Inc. is that John Mink executes 100% of the design work and each and every client meeting. This phase is followed by highly sophisticated CAD or computer generated drawings executed by Architectural Partnership, Inc.'s technical staff of four licensed architects who work under Mr. Mink. Finally, having been a homebuilder and carpenter for ten years while studying to be an architect, John's residences reflect the utmost in cost efficiency and the highest quality construction.
