Jonathan treated us like family and was by our side every step of the way. He was the only professional we worked with during our entire journey that treated us with kindness, patience and respect. While everyone else was worried about getting paid, Jonathan put our interests first and stayed true to his word from the first time we met him.

My husband and I are celebrating 1 year in our home designed by and with Jonathan Rivera. There has not been a day that we’ve lived here that we aren’t grateful for Jonathan’s magnificent work, especially during this time of “sheltering in place”. Among the most vision, and vision to design. He pays attention to how it is you plan to live in the space, and brings a wealth of experience and creativity to help visualize and incorporate things that you can’t quite put into words. The process of building a home can be overwhelming. Working with Jonathan made it much easier. On more than one occasion, he reminded us of what he heard us say was important to us, presenting decisions during the build from missing the mark. His skill and professionalism, combined with the fact that he is a delightful human being, made the building process exciting and every interaction enjoyable! The more you share your vision with Jonathan, the more that vision will to come life.
Jonathan is highly focused on his client’s vision for their project. Yes, he has great taste and his work is creative, but more than anything he listens (really listens) to his clients and makes it a lot of fun to collaborate with JRA. In our case, Jonathan’s rendering and design were precisely what we had wanted and ultimately what we now call ‘home’. What we hadn’t anticipated, however, is the level of support, expertise, and attention to detail Jonathan and his team provided throughout the permitting, mobilization, and construction phases. JRA was tremendously helpful in all of these respects. Our family really is grateful to Jonathan and his team.
We love our new home and Jonathan was a pleasure to work with. We were in a huge rush to break ground and pushed the design process to move very quickly. Jonathan heard our requests and desires and no details were left off the plan. I can honestly say there is nothing I would change in the design of our home. We highly recommend working with Jonathan Rivera.
Jonathan came highly recommended and by working with him I see why this is so. Unlike many other architects that you can work with you ALWAYS talk to Jonathan. I cannot stress the importance of this when working with an architect. Jonathan has a gift. He is able to extract your vision and is free to draw the idea by simply having a conversation with you and knowing the right questions to ask. He goes further by incorporating your current comfort zone into your new design by really getting to know you and how you live. I knew our house would be perfect because of all his hard work.
We had the pleasure of having Jonathan Rivera design our dream home. We had seen a few other homes in our neighborhood that he had designed before ours, which led to our decision to hire Jonathan. We couldn't be happier with the end results, he created our dream home! He put so much thought into the design, we live on the water, and every room has an amazing view! He listened to us, got to know us, and made sure that we had everything that we wanted and more! The flow is perfect for family gatherings, holidays, and celebrations while still being a warm and cozy home! We will enjoy making many new memories in our new beautiful home with friends and family! Thank you, Jonathan!!
Working with Jonathan Rivera on our custom home has been an incredible experience. We have worked with other architects, but Jonathan has exceeded our expectations in that he understood our direction, but improved upon it tremendously. His passion for our home and his understanding of how to take all the facets of our project (our unique lot, our budget, our likes) and sketch out the home of our dreams is amazing! Jonathan's experience in all facets of custom home design has made what could be an incredibly overwhelming process truly delightful. Highly recommend!
We have admired Jonathan Rivera’s work for years. We had only him to design the outdoor living and garage addition we wanted for our newly constructed home. After carefully listening to what we wanted, he designed the amazing space we needed! Jonathan captured our personal style perfectly. He was active in the construction process by having excellent communication with the builder and making site visits. They collaborated to deliver us a garage, covered porch, and deck that is beyond our beauty and quality expectations. Not once did we question Jonathan’s choices and suggestions. We will trust him to thoughtfully design any scope of project we have in our future.
