“Working with John Marinelli was a pleasure. He was flexible and responsive, and he had a sound
knowledge of the architectural requirements necessary for my medical practice.
Additionally, he was very helpful with the design elements of the project.
I am very happy with the end result.”

John Marinelli was brought on board to design and assist with the build out of our new Credit Union space. John had to take a “very unique and irregularly shaped” space and make it work for our Credit Union. To add to the pressure we placed not only on the Architect,
but on the General Contractor and subs as well, we gave them a very, very short time frame in which to complete the project. It was truly one of the best decisions we made. John was always easy and pleasant to work with, diligent with his responses, he listened
to our ideas and implemented them accordingly. When we felt the inspectors were being unreasonable by requesting things that were not necessary by code, John went to bat for us and saved us a good deal of money. It is a pleasure to recommend John Marinelli to anyone
looking for an honest and reliable architect.

I have referred Marinelli Architects + Planners to a number of my clients. He provides them with the professional services that I would highly recommend
to any client.
What make’s John different than other Architects is his intuited designs that take ideas on paper and bring them to life.

We had the opportunity to work with John of Marinelli Architects and Planners on several projects for Stamford Health Medical Group including our locations at Chelsea Piers in Stamford, 396 Danbury Road in Wilton, 555 Newfield Avenue in Stamford and most recently our new project at 75 Holly Hill Road in Greenwich. We would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service that John personally provided to each project. As the executive lead for Stamford Health, I worked closely with John Marinelli on selecting the standards for branding Stamford Health Medical Group. John ensured these standards were not only met but exceeded on each project. We had aggressive construction schedules that required effective coordination and communication to ensure projects were completed on time and ahead of budget. John was an instrumental member of each projects team. Throughout the various projects John truly acted as a partner with members of the various construction teams. RFIs and submittals were reviewed and returned quickly. John personally visited job sites regularly to assist in coordinating any required field changes as they were
discovered so that the design intent and construction schedule was never compromised. He established and maintained excellent working relationships with all parties involved. Additionally, he was very open to soliciting feedback from key stakeholders and incorporating this feedback into the plans resulting in optimal workflow design. The cooperation and collaboration that John brought to the numerous projects he led was greatly appreciated. The atmosphere and partnership resulted in a truly enjoyable project experience with successful end results. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Marinelli Architects and Planners in the future.

John has a unique design sense, and he has the ability to find the style that the particular client is looking for. I work with many architects but John Marinelli is that rare breed who truly listens to what his client is looking for. He creates a space that is both functional and beautiful. I am always excited to be involved with Marinelli Architects + Planners.

Dear John:
On behalf of Stamford Hospital, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a leader on the team that developed our expanded ambulatory care center at 1500 Post Road in Darien. When our project began, Stamford Hospital sought to create a patient focused space that projected a feeling of calmness and healing. Your architectural interpretation of the hospital’s vision allowed us to achieve our goal, and even went beyond expectations. Through your expert skills and your sharp knowledge of design, you created an environment reflective of the hospital’s focus and one that befits our ideal. From a personal perspective, it was more than a pleasure to work with you. Your ability to interpret space coupled with superb interpersonal skills and quick turn-around, made you invaluable to our project.
I congratulate you on accomplishing a challenging task with the utmost of skill and professionalism. Stamford Hospital looks forward to the possibility of working with you on future projects.
