Jonathan Barnes Architecture and Design is a strong idea firm grounded in a critical design process. JBAD contributes to the built environment through contemporary design, community engagement and a collaborative culture that promotes learning and research. “We design with purpose.”
We use thoughtful, innovative and beautiful designs to realize aspirational visions for our clients and enrich our communities.
RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
We are tenacious and always strive for perfection and a high level of design in everything we do. We know that details matter and excellent work is the result of a thousand thoughtful decisions.
HEALTHY SENSE OF URGENCY
We do our best to always be efficient in our work process and execute with a sense of immediacy. We work smarter not faster and balance urgency with excellence. We are respectfully impatient.
We question assumptions and see every project as an opportunity to find new ways to understand, analyze, create, solve and improve that add value and generate new models. We investigate with purpose and a focus on outcomes.
We approach our work with a sense of possibility and personal agency. We continuously look for ways to improve our practice and go beyond instructions and expectations. We expect everyone to have a voice and be heard, no back rows.
We know that we do better when we work as a team and share in our success. We seek diversity and inclusivity in our team and our perspectives and seek out each other’s ideas, thoughts, feedback, and criticism. People drive the firm.
