Welcome to JFAK.
John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects (JFAK) believes that architecture can dramatically affect people’s lives. JFAK exploits this potential to create new types of social spaces that encourage creative interaction, sustain the environment, and catalyze positive change for their users and surrounding communities.
JFAK’s distinct and joyful formal landscapes are the result of an inquisitive design process that mines the possibilities and complexities of our contemporary, heterogeneous society.
Each project is therefore committed to expressing the aspirations and identity of the entity it represents through productive dialogue with its physical and cultural surroundings. Sculptural exterior volumes work with light-filled interior spaces to create meaningful adjacencies and unexpected views, as well as to encourage a range of activities – from individual contemplation to communal interaction and creative teamwork.
This is what we're about. So, welcome. We're pleased to meet you.
