JW Stoddard & Associates is a creative design firm in Austin, TX specializing in residential design.
Committed to creating a collaborative process and site-specific designs, we strive to create homes that embody three beliefs: a simple approach, practical planning, and beauty. Our goal is to create timeless spaces that merge our client’s wishes with the unique qualities of their site.
The design process is rarely straightforward, which is why listening to your needs, goals, and wishes is a key component to the design process. The strong respectful relationship we build with our clients provides the framework as we work together to develop a one-of-a-kind design that maximizes your home site’s potential.
Design, at its core, needs to make sense. We believe homes should be just that – a comfortable and practical place to live your best life, not a museum where form is more important than function. Our designs are tailored to maximize livability, with special emphasis placed on developing functional and efficient floorplans.
We work within a variety of styles by embracing the core principles of design: timeless details, balanced proportion, and unified design. Whether it’s a sprawling rustic ranch or a mid-century bungalow, all JW Stoddard & Associates designs reflect a common goal: to create a home that is beautiful, harmonious, and reflective of our collaborative vision.
“John combines the technical and relational skills of design that allows everyone involved to feel a sense of confidence and comfort in the project reaching its fullest potential.”
“John was a pivotal asset in the remodel of our home in Westlake. Thanks to his guidance and direction, our house became the home of our dreams and for that, we are eternally grateful. I would recommend John to anybody who wants to build or remodel something truly special.”
SHIFLET GROUP ARCHITECTS
“After working with some of the leading professionals in the United States, I was fortunate to have John Stoddard join Shiflet Group Architects for 5 years. John is a person of the highest integrity and extremely talented in all aspects of design. He has a wonderful smile, a quick wit, and is extremely bright. I cannot say enough good things about John Stoddard.”
"I have worked with John on several projects over the past decade and have found him to be both highly talented and excellent to work with. We have collaborated on several highly successful custom residential projects for discriminating clientele and his architectural ability and vision is matched by his bedside manner, temperament, and likeable personality. These qualities are rare yet very important to seek when selecting someone to work with on creating your dream home. After working with John on custom projects for clients, I selected John to work with on a personal project that turned out amazing and will work with John again on both custom client driven projects and on personal projects."
FORD STREI BUILDERS
"John has always been a pleasure to work with. As a builder I have always appreciated the way he has handled everything, from pre-construction meetings, to job site meetings, and coordination of detailing. He is alway an ally to help us push the job to the finish line and help with decisions and design details."
