Headed by three Principals and supported by a team of Project Architects, Project Managers and Junior Project Managers, JRS handles requirements of all types and scale, from interior renovations, consolidations and restacks to new ground-up construction.
Our philosophy of architecture focuses on designing contextually and to scale within varying surroundings. We achieve visual excitement by adjusting the dynamics of interior and exterior spatial relationships. And, our team's creative use of leading-edge materials, many green, delivers superior durability and ease of maintenance.
For over 30 years, the mission has been to forge a partnership with each client and design specifically to their unique needs and budget. To ensure this result, a JRS Principal takes the lead in every project we sign.
We believe great design is a product of creativity and talent not of cost. Our award-winning team works collaboratively with each client to achieve results supportive of their identity and aspirations. We bring value to clients beyond their expectations by sourcing new, cost-effective materials and treatments, many in advance of general industry usage.
Our resource library is one of the largest in the region. These elements are brought together by designers with tested abilities who understand the art of bringing light into inhabitable space. Our solutions focus on how to best direct the flow of people through environments, incorporate rich textures to delineate space and enliven surroundings, and create visual impact through space compression and expansion.
The result is beautiful design that serves the present but with a capacity to change and grow with our clients.
