PHILOSOPHY & ROOTS
J+A. Architects & Planners is a thriving team-structured professional corporation providing comprehensive architectural, planning, and interior design services focused on resort architecture. Founded in Vail Colorado in 1996 by architect Brian Judge, the J+A studio team began with large-scale residential design. Since then, the firm has grown to include professionals encompassing four divisions: Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Land Planning.
With current projects across the nation, J+A’s design philosophy centers on the belief that good design enables a community and sustains its economic vitality. J+A’s success is based on the vision of bringing client’s dreams to reality. Service, attention to detail, and communication are the backbone of the firm.
The complexities of residential architecture and planning are a microcosm of J+A’s work, from incorporation of cutting-edge technology to up-to-the-minute knowledge of local building codes. J+A continually hones its integrated approach to architecture and the building industry. Exemplary is the firm’s leadership in LEED certification of its projects where possible, promoting sustainable green design throughout the industry. Similarly, the J+A staff pride themselves on environmental awareness, with considerations of climate, topography, and natural resources, all key aspects of design development.
With a J+A Principal and one senior project architect personally leading each design and project management team, the firm constantly monitors the current workload to assure excellent administration and documentation of every aspect and practice.
Finally, J+A’s award winning designs are timeless, classic, and inspired by indigenous materials and cost effective parameters. We delight in the relationship between natural light, space, and proportion. We embrace the spirit of new technology alongside historic precedent. We are dedicated to exploring innovative solutions that move a project from the remarkable to the extraordinary.
