atelierjones is an architecture, planning, and design firm that engages design, research, and community to reclaim urban sites, buildings, materials to build homes, offices, shops, churches, theaters, gardens, sportcourts, and mobility infrastructure from biodiesel stations to transit.
Founded by Susan Jones, FAIA in 2003 the firm seeks out sites, buildings and materials with inherent, but underutilized value—to harvest their embodied energy, their catalytic power for owners and communities, their beauty. Her work creates delight and wonder in leftover, dirty, forgotten places and spaces, and materials, creating new uses in innovative and beautiful ways. atelierjones has forged this cross disciplinary approach through embracing methodologies mined from sustainability and materials research, from historic preservation and adaptive reuse movements, real estate development as well as community activism.
