Firm Profile

What We Do

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.
