I want you to know that I greatly appreciate the work you have done…your ideas and contribution was greatly appreciated and has added a great deal to the end result. For that I am grateful.”

Ryan Kerry Stokes – Director, Australian Capital Equity P/L

“We really do thank you between ourselves frequently. The design of our house has worked beautifully, inspires us daily and, for us, is faultless. Kind regards to you Brianna and Paul”

Dr Genevieve Carbonaro

“I have known John & Geoform for over 5 years and have had the pleasure of working on both commercial and residential projects with them. John and the team at Geoform have been fantastic to work with. John has a great eye for detail and his designs are beautiful and inspirational – at the same time he is an architect that truly listens to his clients and is commercial in his understanding of what we needed to achieve with each project. The end result is that we have spaces that are functional, wonderful to live and work in and timeless in their aesthetic.”

Christina Caredes – General Manager, spacefurniture, Sydney showroom.

“We have been living in the house that John designed for 13 years now and we still get regular comments how beautiful, contemporary and timeless the design is. The site was not easy, being narrow and steep, but john did a remarkable job of getting the most out of the job. John is a great listener and is fantastic at combining the client’s wishes with a functional and at the same time beautiful design. He is also not afraid to disagree when necessary. He talked me out of certain things and I’m so glad he did….We highly recommend John and Geoform.”

Irene Grootendorst and Peter Skalkos

“As an experienced and regular employer of architectural services, we have been highly impressed with the skill and depth of talent which Geoform has brought to all our projects, to the point now where we choose not to look elsewhere for architectural services. We have found John’s imaginative yet practical designs unique and a major point of difference for our projects when we take them to the market. The Geoform team’s ability to listen to the client throughout the design process and take a brief to the best possible outcome is impressive in a profession where good practical design is often the casualty of ‘artistic license’.”

Rolf J. Wiedemann  – Legal Director, Tipaza Pty. Limited


Your design and good judgement are to be admired both in our home and our commercial ventures. Your attention to detail and sensitivity to the client, site and situation is wonderful…..I am already looking forward to our next project.”

John Scipelitti – Miranda Dental + Medical Centre


” having been involved with john and geoform in at least 6 projects to date, I can say that he is different from the architectural pack.. he is a patient listener, a good communicator with endless ideas…. always positive with impeccable judgement. His attention to detail whilst maintaining an awareness of the big picture is amazing. The most sensitive and committed architect I have met, who follows through across all aspects of design, approval and construction process to ensure the projects, and my best expectations are exceeded….I have thoroughly enjoyed the relationship and look forward to the next project.”

John Mead [ex-executive Director of the Peppers Hotel Group]

“John did a remarkable job on our Paddington heritage home, adding a new modern wing that sets off the charm of the old with the light and space of the new. His ability to maximise space, in a beautiful way, is awesome. A very sophisticated design team, along with his partner Brianna, they have managed to create a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Managed the builder and budget to boot. Have no hesitation in recommending Geoform.”

Paul Polydor – Managing Director , Macquarie Bank Limited.

“I engaged Geoform part way through the construction of the redevelopment of a luxury residence in Darling Point as I felt our original architect was underperforming. The vision and design they came up with, has not only added quality and significant value to the property but, created a practical solution to many issues that arose during construction. Their capacity to take over the project part way through the construction period, negotiate all the characters involved, including multiple council submission, seeing opportunities in design and achieve the outcome that has occurred, can only be given the highest praise. I would not hesitate to use them on any of our projects in the future. A sincere thanks to John, Brianna and Paul for all their assistance

Michael Rothner – Principal, Ashe Morgan Capital – property and development

“ I don’t usually make recommendations but your assistance with the remodelling of our beautiful heritage listed house in Randwick has resulted in a fresh, modern and exciting interpretation that is easy to live in, practical and a joy to experience. The way you have put together materials and flow of space is sophisticated – and you have maximised the unseen opportunities in the house, a great outcome.

Paul Bayutti – former Randwick Councillor and Mayor.
