If design brings form to values, architecture is a conductor for human expression and endeavor.

JCJ Architecture is a diverse planning, architecture and interior design practice that offers comprehensive services to clients in the public and private sector. Our engaged design process brings together our experience as professionals with a methodology of active and alert advocacy. Balancing owner/client goals, functional objectives and physical context alongside project scope, constraints and opportunities, we strive to resolve and manifest project qualities into built form. We see design as a collaborative process and collectively strive to add value to those places and spaces that strengthen communities, businesses, institutions, organizations and individuals.

The firm's portfolio of experience, comprehensive services and collective knowledge are captured in two overall categories – commercial (gaming, entertainment, hospitality, hotel, retail, workplace) and institutional (K12 education, higher education, civic, community, arts & culture, public safety/justice). The firm currently has offices located in Boston, Hartford, New York City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Diego, and Tulsa and is registered to practice in 44 US states.

Central to practice is leveraging the collective expertise and energy of our employee-owners. Founded in 1936 and maintained throughout as a privately held firm, the firm took the bold step in 2012 to transition to an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan). Since that time, JCJ has used this structure to strengthen a culture of collaboration and creativity that is balanced by a process of oversight and management. Each of our employee-owners understands the impact their work has on the delivery of our services and the contribution it makes to clients and their constituents. This consciousness keeps the client’s unique context uppermost in our minds as we seek to bring form to their goals and aspirations.
