J ANGELO DESIGN BUILD

Mastering the art of great spaces for generations.

Philosophy

When you hire J Angelo Design Build, you get a firm willing to work with you from the ground floor - actually from before the ground floor!

For over 30 years, John Angelo Meyer has been developing, building, reimagining, and managing spaces that are each as unique as their surroundings. J Angelo Design Build maximizes resources and talent to create unique environments that are functional, beautiful and extraordinary.

For John, designing and building has been a lifelong pursuit. After college he began his career in property management, improving properties across the country. His 12-year corporate ascent in the Property Management Industry took him from historic skyscrapers in New York to luxury residential buildings across Texas, and beyond. In 1993 he launched Modern Contractors, Inc—a successful commercial construction company that builds diverse projects across North Texas.

 

In 2004, John created J Angelo Design Build and began incorporating custom, high-end design builds into his personal portfolio with award-winning projects across Texas and Arizona. John seeks inspiration from the world’s most iconic architectural settings. With extensive travel across Asia, Europe, Canada, Central America, and the US, John’s pursuit for both perfection and individualism is motivated by a myriad of architectural styles, periods, and cultures. 

 

J Angelo Design Build is the culmination of decades of diversified experience, global influences, and a deep-rooted passion for building bespoke spaces that are designed to enhance the unique experiences they accommodate.

President & CEO

John Angelo Meyer

For John, designing and building has been a lifelong pursuit, and J Angelo Design Build has been nearly 30 years in the making. John started paying his dues immediately after college managing and improving properties throughout the nation, as he climbed the corporate ladder within the property management industry for over 12 years.

 

After that, he spent 13 years honing his skills as founder and president of Modern Contractors, Inc, a successful commercial construction company that builds projects around North Texas. In 2004, after selling Modern Contractors, John created J Angelo Design Build and began incorporating custom, high-end design builds into his personal portfolio with award-winning projects across Texas and Arizona. Today, John continues creating unique projects that are as individual as their owners.

Founding a successful construction company then a successful design/build firm was no accident.  For years, John has sought inspiration from the world’s architectural hubs. With travel from Asia to Europe, from Canada to Central America, and throughout the US and the Caribbean, John has seen and experienced a myriad of architectural styles, periods, and cultures. Just try to imagine these experiences as seen through the eyes of both a designer and builder. It makes perfect sense he would combine this inspiration and construction know how! Ask J Angelo to create something special for you.
