Our Story

Creativity that Works – A Design Journey

At Jones Pierce Architects, we breathe life into Creativity that Works. Whether rebranding the office, designing multifamily living spaces, turning historic buildings into modern work, live and play spaces, creating a unique dining experience, or defining home, we begin with listening, the most critical element of design. We work with you to understand the feel you want to create and function that you need. We also partner with you to develop a project that is viable from a budget, zoning, sustainability, neighborhood and, if needed, historical standpoint.

We also believe that teamwork is key. Matching the right contractors, craftsmen and subs are essential to a successful outcome. We have the in-house capabilities to manage the construction phase whether through Jones Pierce Structures or your preferred contractor. Through our teamwork approach, we work hard to make you happy, and we are with you throughout the entire journey which only ends when you are completely satisfied.
