What Sets Us Apart

Let us show you why you should choose JK Pool Architects to design your dreams.
Holistic Vision

Holistic Vision

A truly successful project needs to be approached & designed holistically. There are many different aspects that need to be known at the beginning of the design process. Viewing the process holistically creates a completeness & thoroughness of the design process.
Holistic Design

Holistic Design

Holistic Design means listening and respecting my client’s needs & budget. It also incorporates placing the home in harmony with the land, maximizing the view & the enhancement of natural light and solar gain.
Holistic Process

Holistic Process

The Holistic process includes precision and detail with my construction documents. This approach will save the client time & money during the construction phase. Builders I work with comment that my construction documents are the most complete and thorough that they work with. This attention to construction documents assists in a smoother & more cohesive construction process.
The result is a home that is in balance with itself. Specifically, we design a home that is in harmony with itself. This approach has led to my clients and their guests to comment that not only is their home stunning but their home has a uniquely wonderful feel. This is not by accident, it is consciously created.

Responsibility in Architecture & Design

  • Responsibility to The Client:
    To a functional and creative design
    To the environment
    To the community
    Responsibility:
    My first responsibility is to the client. It is my commitment to you, that I will listen to you and will continue to communicate with you throughout our whole design process.
    One of my great joys of being an architect is, as I listen to you, I begin to understand your vision.
    One of my great joys in being an architect is not bringing your dream into a reality but to surpass your dreams.
    A collaborative process enables us to engage clients and therefore our designs are unique & diverse – just like you are.
  • Responsibility to design:
    The design is a marriage of beautiful & functional. We live in the magnificent Rocky Mountains. The design may complement the texture and materials of where we live.
    The function of the design is to insure the quality of construction and knowledge of designing with the view, the quality of light and the purpose & enjoyment of your home.
  • Responsibility to The Environment:
    For years we have heard the term “green” used in regards to architecture. I feel it is an architect’s responsibility to go beyond green and to design with RESPONSIBILITY. I will suggest products that will create a healthy home for you & your family & friends to enjoy.
  • Responsibility to the Community:
    It is my responsibility to insure the design is within the guidelines & meets the requirements of your subdivision and the building codes. The quality of my construction documents will insure a smooth & uncomplicated construction process. I will only recommend construction materials that are professional & of the highest quality.
