Of all the arts and sciences that have evolved into commodities in the past few decades, architecture is perhaps the most paradoxical. Because not everyone wants a magazine cover home or a paradigm-shattering office building. Function continues to trump form. And yet, we continue to seek expression and delight in the spaces we inhabit.
John Milander understands the often contradictory nature of his profession. He is an architect who balances design with a perspective on both tradition and reality. The direction of his work reflects the core essence of the client and the substance of their intention. Which is to say, he can turn heads and he can manage a budget. As a John Milander client, the degree of either is your call.
One standard never fluctuates: quality. While the genre of his designs embraces a breadth of applications, from residential to commercial and from new construction to remodeling, John Milander is a values-centric architect who blends the aesthetic with the practical, with an eye toward global stewardship and renewable value.
John Milander is a licensed architect in Arizona and California. He graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Architecture and from the Southern California Institute of Architecture with a Masters degree.
Unfortunately, architecture degrees have become commodities, too. But passion, talent and values will never bend to competitive and economic pressures. This is why John Milander emerges from the architectural paradox as a practitioner of the future. This is why he loves what he does.
And why you will, as well.
