Philosophy

Jesse Bornstein Architecture specializes in formally rigorous, site-specific custom design.

We work closely with our clients from design conception through construction using study models, material samples, sketches and computer-based drawings, to communicate formal concepts and building systems. Our ongoing interest in experimentation is tempered by our aspiration toward a timeless architecture that explores the formal and spatial language of modern design, as well as by our construction cost/benefit analyses and an abiding respect for our client's budget.

Hallmarks of our practice are a refined palette of materials and architectural details, spatially interconnected built and natural environments, and the integration of passive and active solar systems into a modern architectural context. We apply our skills, knowledge of construction and aesthetic sensibilities toward creating beautiful, lasting, life-affirming environments for each of our clients.
