JGMA is a progressive architecture and design practice committed to interdisciplinary collaboration, active community involvement and the enrichment of people’s’ lives through attentive and dynamic organization of space and materiality. We understand that architecture and design has a unique ability to influence civic life and transform communities.
Based in Chicago, we have successfully executed design projects at all scales from small to extra-large in North America, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. Our team represents a diverse collaboration of experienced architectural professionals with a vast portfolio of public and private work in the areas of education, research and technology, hospitality, residential, healthcare, commercial, interiors, urban and master planning, product design and graphic design.
Our belief in the collaborative nature of architecture goes beyond the confines of our office, as we strive always to build strong relationships with our clients and across professional disciplines. We are constantly cultivating our conception of what “architecture” is and believe that each project has the potential to create and foster new audiences and lifestyles. Our work is conceptually driven but exhibits high quality and efficiency at every level of the design process and beyond completion.
JGMA is led by Juan Gabriel Moreno and supported by a talented team of experienced architectural professionals. Founded in 2010, JGMA has family roots that run deep; founding partners Juan Moreno, Cosmin Vrajitoru and Jason Nuttelman have been in practice together for 8 years and bring four decades of combined experience to the firm.
