Good outcomes in architecture are a collective effort. JRS Architects is team oriented, client centered, and community engaged. Our mission at JRS is to make better places to learn and to worship, creating unique and inspired spaces. We believe that beauty can cure and that beauty should transcend all boundaries, geographical, social and cultural.
The communities of East and West Baltimore are filled with windowless shells. And yet even a shell has value. One of our greatest strengths lies in recognizing the intrinsic value that resides in existing structures and using those strengths to bring added value to projects and renewal to communities. We create difference that celebrates and elevates ordinary human activity. We create an architecture specific to each site, client, program, need, want and budget.
The great city of Baltimore, Maryland, is our home and workshop. Local knowledge and ready access makes for design solutions that are familiar, aware, sensitive, and constructive. Our projects make sensible, tangible contributions to the beauty of our city and state, enhancing communities, providing opportunities, landmarks, focal points, the palpable benefits of a thoughtful built environment. 2018 is our 25th year.
