Alexander Jermyn Architecture: Firm Profile
Alexander Jermyn Architecture has developed a diverse body of work including residential, cultural and commercial projects. The approach to each design problem is with an artistic and technical rigor guided by a commitment to craft in architecture. The work addresses the fundamental problems of space, proportion, light and materials, and their intrinsic properties within architecture. The intensive research for each project guides the design process in lieu of following a stylistic agenda, striving for an architecture from which multiple readings emerge, exploring the associations of program and space, material and detail, complexity and simplicity.
The small size and diverse skills of the design team allow the practice to work closely and intensively with clients to provide thoughtful, economical and lasting solutions. The collaborative dialogue between architect, client, and contractor is a core tenet from inception to completion for all work. The meticulous attention to concept and detail guides and refines the design process towards a solution which is architecturally, socially, and contextually coherent. The practice oversees all projects from their conception through construction and collaborates closely with the contractors and artisans who build them. The practice provides full architectural design, construction administration, planning and zoning analysis, as well as interior design services.
The firm was chosen as a Design Vanguard by Architectural Record in 2016, an award for the best emerging architects from around the world. It has also received awards from the AIA and Architecture Magazine.
