About Jones StudioVisit Website
Jones Studio is a mid-sized architecture, interior design, graphic design, public art and planning firm founded in Phoenix, Arizona in 1979 by Eddie Jones, AIA. Younger brother Neal Jones, AIA, joined the firm in 1986.
Since its start, the Jones Studio “family” has grown to include 15 highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals. The firm enjoys an unusually broad range of building types, spanning from a “two-holer” outhouse trailhead located on a remote desert site, to the 54-acre Mariposa Land Port of Entry in Nogales, Arizona – the fourth busiest land port in the United States.
Their portfolio includes higher education facilities, research facilities, performing arts centers, land ports of entry, an NFL training facility, a museum, a town hall, a softball-soccer stadium, an entire college campus and over 18 custom designed homes.
Jones Studio and their clients have been honored with 190 design awards, for over 50 built projects. In 2014 they were awarded the Arizona Forward Crescordia Award for Environmental Stewardship and were ranked 21st in The Architect 50 and 6th in Sustainability.
Eddie M. Jones
Edward (Eddie) Jones, with his business partner and brother Neal, were raised in the oil fields of Oklahoma. From a very early age the two bothers aspired to be architects and share a studio.
Eddie was born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1949 and moved to Arizona in 1973 after graduating from Oklahoma State University. Eddie became the Lead Designer at Lescher & Mahoney, Arizona’s oldest architecture firm, where he worked for five years. He founded Jones Studio on June 8, 1979, three months before his 30th birthday. It was not until years later, he realized he had begun his professional career on the birthday of his two major heroes… Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff.
