About Us

John Cole Architect specializes in the design of vacation and retirement homes, primarily in Maine. These homes all start with the owners' attachment to a place and the dream of a more relaxed life-style. My goal is to give form to the dream. My first home building experience came at the side of my father, a frugal Yankee carpenter. My training in design came later at Yale, Washington University and the School of Wood Sculpture in Quebec. In between was a brief hockey career in Europe. Early in my architectural career I designed homes for custom builders. As a partner in a large Boston area firm I continued to design homes for friends and word-of-mouth clients, as well as leading teams on award-winning commercial projects. Drawn back to my roots by the satisfaction of hands-on work, my focus now is home design inspired by New England traditions of craft, thrift and whimsy.
