Jibe Design is an award-winning firm creating architecture which weds thoughtful design with environmentally responsible solutions.
Our work seeks to communicate elegance, wonder and an easeful clarity through the honest and inventive use of materials and a sensitivity to location. We study how a project will be used in order to creatively organize the various uses into a smoothly functional whole. Recognizing the environmental impact of construction, we seek healthful design solutions. Jibe Design creates architecture driven by both a lyrical sense of space, and the needs and aspirations of the user. Our extensive construction experience allows our services to extend beyond a typical architecture firm's role in construction administration. We keep abreast of innovations in materials, construction techniques, and sustainability to provide our clients with a finely honed and efficient design.
Our services include residential and commercial new construction, adaptive reuse and renovation, interiors, masterplanning, landscape and garden design and LEED consulting. With deep roots in construction, Jibe Design confidently manages building costs and completion in cooperative accord with the General Contractor.
Once clear lines of communication have been established and a project's direction fully approved, we combine our analytical skills with our artistic prowess to create a highly functional and fluidly articulated building.
JULIET WHELAN, LEED AP
Juliet founded Jibe Design in 2005, and brings twenty years of professional experience to the firm's leadership. Her design work explores the juncture of clean utility and spatial artistry. She recognizes that she must not only calibrate a building’s visual and functional impact, but also its impact on the larger environment; and so she seeks green design solutions. The process through which she finds coherent form involves directed collaboration, solitary research, and capricious insight. Jibe Design is a registered Woman Business Enterprise in PA, DE, and NJ.
