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.”
Over 29 years, JBAD has built a national reputation for highly innovative, cost-effective design and the professional delivery of services with both public and private works. 30 design awards, both local and national, affirm this reputation and include the American Architecture Award. The firm’s experience is intentionally diverse and includes higher education, cultural, commercial office, retail, exhibit and single and multi-family project types as well as mixed-use projects of many kinds. These projects share a common design philosophy and process that questions convention and tradition and searches for new design solutions that create new experiences, improved performance and a greater leverage of investment.
JBAD believes that good design does not happen by chance or by accident. It is not artsy or trendy, but reflects a thinking process, a purpose, and a solution. The value of desig...n lies in the ability of a space, a building, or a functional object to have an effect on people – to shape behavior, to inspire, to challenge, to inform, to comfort, to engage, and to stimulate. The firm uses design to empower their clients and creates design solutions that are based on their needs and desires. JBAD’s thinking process engages innovation and design expertise to create value for their clients.
The strong design focus of the firm is balanced by a serious commitment to high quality and thorough project detailing and documentation, a comprehensive project management process and client relations focused on personal contact and a high level of communication. These strengths are borne out by consistent high praise from our clients.
