JMKA I architects, an award-winning firm in lower Fairfield County, has built its reputation working closely with clients to design projects that integrate the clients’ needs and vision within a budget. The firm’s design philosophy draws on the proven lessons of historical, regional and cultural context.

In the design process, JMKA I architects does an in-depth exploration of both the project requirements and the client’s aspirations. We investigate all aspects of the property, its relation to the program and its impact on the design. Through all of this, the budget is referred to and tested in relation to the design process.

JMKA I architects takes a collaborative approach to design, working closely with the client, the builder, interior de- signer, mill shop and landscape architect. Working as a team ensures that an often-complex process is smooth from beginning to end, with the result being a successful project.

The same high level of detail JMKA I architects employs on the exterior is continued through the interiors. Our expertise in custom-designed furniture, hardware and lighting and our ongoing relationships with the finest builders, consultants and craftsman result in satisfying the demands for high quality required by our clients.

JMKA I architects has the same enthusiasm for small renovations and additions as for new construction. In the words of one of our clients, “It is awesome… the most amazing thing is how well the architecture, the design and the furnishings all combine to create exactly what we were hoping for…”

JMKA I architects views each project as a new canvas. We integrate the client’s vision and aspirations, work within a budget and provide hands-on management of the details and the craft. A unique, personal architectural process is the hallmark of our firm.
