John P. Margolis born in Boston, Massachusetts received his Bachelors Degree with a Major in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, and his Masters of Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986. He pursued his lifelong passion for architecture at numerous prestigious firms including Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott.

There he designed many varied residential designs – predominantly in the traditional vernacular, typical of the grand estates built over a century earlier.
