Neil Jorgensen operates J3 Architects from northern King County with a passion for architecture and a compilation of more than twenty years of experience in the field. Over the years, he has established a network of positive relationships with engineers, contractors, and building departments. His enthusiasm for the art of architecture runs deep.
Neil's interest in architecture started in Illinois during his junior year at Glenbrook South High School. Through winning a high school design competition, his house was selected and built by the students the following school year. With that experience, Neil was able to secure a drafting job with two local architects directly out of high school. He continued this employment there throughout his college years at the University of Illinois in Chicago.
The highlight of college for Neil was a year studying abroad in Versailles, France, at a French school of architecture located in the Petite Stables of Chateau de Versailles, including a one-week sketching trip based out of Florence, Italy. He returned to the United States with a wealth of experience, and he soon graduated with a five-year professional degree, a Bachelor of Architecture in Structures (1994).
After graduation, Neil moved to Seattle, Washington, to pursue a job opportunity with a modular home builder. Two years later he gained employment at The Healey Alliance Architects, where he worked for nine and a half years. Neil became licensed in 2005 and subsequently began J3 Architects as a side business while working at the Murray Franklyn Family of Companies and, more recently, Terrene Ventures. After a brief partnership with architect Ron Healey in 2014, Neil moved over full time to J3 Architects.
Neil began J3 Architects to continue his experience with remodeling existing homes and grew it from there. He welcomes the challenges of blending old and new in his additions and remodels. A favorite project of his, a home he designed in the Issaquah Highlands (Harrison Street, lot 4), represents his other joy, the pleasure of creating new space. Neil's passion combines with his lifetime of experience to produce high-quality buildings around the Seattle area.
