At Jensen Architects we are passionate about creating buildings and environments that enrich the experiences of organizations and individuals. Guided by a responsibility to achieve the most using the fewest resources and to engage a broader cultural perspective, we develop solutions that embody each client’s values and larger purpose.
Our wide-ranging portfolio—encompassing arts, education, residential, workplace and retail—is underpinned by an abiding interest in how we live and work today, and the pleasure we take in collectively solving design challenges through research, unconventional thinking, and a focus on craft. The economy and directness in our work reflects not only a clear concern for ecological sustainability, but also a deep appreciation of the inherent beauty that emerges when functional, experiential and environmental goals are efficiently and gracefully resolved.
We are recognized for innovative applications of proven building systems and materials and valued for our collaborative approach to design and construction. Our accomplishments are rooted in a culture of camaraderie that fosters longstanding relationships with clients, consultants, and colleagues. We offer clients an opportunity for creative exchange that informs our practice as much as the resulting work.
