About

We believe in the collaborative effort.

For J7 a successful architecture and design project requires an interactive process that creates intelligent meaningful design. Design for us is a transformative experience generated by the joint effort of all the trades involved and specially the input of our clients. Every design solution is custom tailored to create space that is not only personalized and functional, but also beautiful.

We thrive on constraints.

For us Architecture and Interior Design go hand in hand no matter the project. We work across small and large scale residential, commercial and hospitality environments; creating spaces to live in and objects to interact with. We thrive on constraints, for J7 true architecture resides in the creative process to overcome the challenges and constraints of each individual project.

We are detail oriented.

The boldness of our designs come from the subtlety of its details. We approach each architectural project with a high regard to how it all comes together. We combine warm materials and a textured palette with clean lines, always paying attention to lighting and its effect on the surrounding environment. With the understanding that architecture and design shape our daily lives, we strive to create a sense of place that responds to the client’s goals and improves people’s lives.
