John Yeon: a brief biographical sketch
"It is this combination of Yeon's interest the landscape and his interest in the built environment that resulted in what is so singular about his architectural work and perhaps is why such a relatively short list of built projects has had such a lasting and broad impact: his is a disciplined architecture of place. And it is not just a wink and a nod as in 'each project has to be a response to the site.' Each project is the site. His work is the essence of regional architecture."

Neal Creek Retreat
This house received an AIA Built Honor Award in 2007. The jury comments were:
"The jury was taken by the way this building sits on the landscape and found it to be an example of elegant and innovative use of space on a very restrictive budget. They described the project as very humble in its concept - very tight in plan and beautifully executed with a vertical circulation for the meadow up into the house. The jurors particularly enjoyed the creation of outdoor space within the rectangular plan with no additive features on the outside.
