JBohn Associates, based in Los Angeles, CA, was originally founded as a design-build firm in the Pacific Northwest. The practice emerged from an interest in the intersection of advanced digital design and fabrication technologies and the craft of building. Our work seeks to achieve the architectural aspirations of our clients through the modern, sustainable application of both conventional and contemporary materials, tools, techniques and technologies. It is an attempt to merge the familiarity of contemporary architecture with a clear project for emerging possibilities in architectural space, form, material and construction. Architectural education and on-going research projects at JBohn Associates such as the Rt 66 Pathway Project and the Zeroth (0th) Energy House continue to inform, influence and inspire our work.
