Practicing at the confluence of art, architecture, and building technology, we collaborate with clients to create buildings and environments in dialogue with culture and place.

Just as early planning made for a smooth transition to working remotely at JENSEN, we are evaluating strategies for a responsible return to the office. We’re staying abreast of evolving public health recommendations and imagining new possibilities afforded by our enhanced mobility. More than ever, we are mindful of the importance of collaboration and cooperation. Preparing together, we will chart the course forward.
