Mr. John Scavelli, our founder, spent his youth earning multiple degrees in architectural engineering and practiced in sought-after design firms. Now, he spends his days working to support his clients through successful design and construction projects.

John’s drive to study the inner working of the architectural and construction industry along with his desire to serve others in achieving their dreams has led to the conception of the firm known today as ResReal Designs. Now, he trains others, while providing dedicated design services for new construction, additions, alterations, facade renovations, decks, attics and anything in between. He loves his work and enjoys servicing his neighbors throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties.

Mr. Scavelli, saw the need for a firm which focuses on architectural and engineering principles to convert client dreams into realities when it comes to residential design and construction. Walking clients through renovations and new construction before one hammer is ever lifted is a service every property owner needs for a successful construction project.

Site & Context

Where a structure is positioned on a property is a major factor in designing renovations, window placements, second story additions, and front facade changes.  More light is always a positive.  It is for better cooking areas or to welcome visitors in a more inviting front entrance.  The context — or purpose — is the leading consideration when adding on to an existing structure.  We at ResReal, ask the questions to get those answer where your emotion lies — and design the your intentions first.


Light is a major factor of all our design work. More natural light, to vaulted ceiling designs with indirect light, both add to a property the the dream home qualities. When these more modern design approaches to living help you stay in a home you can afford, you get the best of all worlds, your dream home and the security of knowing it is within your living expenses.
