Our Process Yields Thoughtful Design that is Unique to Each Client

Design is an important part of every project and emphasis is placed on understanding the client’s practical requirements, personal preferences, and budget. The process is collaborative while also challenging client assumptions. The work of JLBA represents a range of styles which reflect the diversity of clients, project types, and site conditions. JLBA aims to create thoughtful design that is appropriate and unique to each client.
