If you ever consider hiring Jonathan Bowser as your architect - DON'T!!!! He is incompetent, slow and dishonest. Even though he comes off as a good-natured passionate architect at the beginning, he, in reality, is just trying to get any business he can get to pay his bills. He took on our project knowing that he lacks experience required to finish it. Given that we had no prior experience working with architects we were completely fooled. Now that we have worked with real experienced architects, we realize that Jonathan's style is completely outdated and he approaches the project from a completely wrong side.
To summarize - Jonathan ended up charging us massive fees for producing the product which was 2.5 times over our budget. Looking back, it is clear that when we were evaluating Jonathan's work he never showed us projects where he took the lead, but the projects, in which he followed interior designers' directions.
There are so many good architects out there. Don't deal with crooks like Jonathan Bowser!
