Light. Wind. Land.

All have a story to tell.

Let us tell your story.

Light gives life. To plants, people and places.
A building is not just a structure you live or work in, it can exude and invoke emotion.
Light can create that emotion. Early morning light streaming in through a skylight. Dappled light filtered by the branches of a giant oak. Light reflecting off a pool of water. A room filled a with sunset glow.
Capturing the natural light each location offers is a cornerstone of what JMA does, with a trained eye and thoughtful approach by using window placement and sightlines, light is guided to its best use.
Wind is the voice of the land. Speaking in a whisper, a sigh or with conviction. It shapes a location and how we live both inside and out.
The rustle of tree leaves, soft swaying grass, a light breeze sweeping over the patio, or ocean wind pushing fog forward.
Allowing the air to speak gives a home or location identity. Utilizing wind can enhance and freshen a space, there is nothing better than cool air flowing through a house on a hot day. The coastal California wind gives shape to our places, allowing your home to breath by enhancing natural air flow is a must, and taken into account on every JMA project.
Land is legacy.
The land puts perspective and scale in place. Sweeping vistas extend time, valleys give introspection, and mountains, ever changing remind us that Geologic time includes now.
Perhaps nothing is more important than making sure a structure is in harmony with the land it inhabits. JMA looks to the land first and interprets how to incorporate the scale and timelessness of the surroundings. Capturing views, creating privacy, and transforming windows into frames all depend on the land as a guide.
The story is told with emotion, voice and history.
