Building communities that thrive and environments that inspire

Elevate the everyday

From a two-person design studio in 1989 to one of the country’s Architectural Giants and Best Places to Work, JLG Architects remains rooted in building spaces that serve people, not surround them. Our Design for Life approach engages and energizes communities, welcomes wellness, and conserves resources. Together, we create award-winning pathways that foster thriving lives beyond the building.

Build something great

In collaboration with our clients, JLG’s 100% employee ownership pushes the envelope on what it means to be healthy, resilient, safe, resourceful, inspired, and happy. We empower the people who power our communities.
