Julian Palacio Architecture Studio (JPAS) is a New York-based design office. The studio operates as a creative platform for the realization of projects across types, scales and geographies. Our combined experience ranges from the design of public spaces to private residences, interiors, and temporary installations.

Central to our work is an interest in crafting structures and environments to foster meaningful ways of living, connecting, and interacting with one another and the world around us.

With every project we actively pursue a collaborative dialogue with partners, clients, consultants and builders to materialize an optimistic belief in the transformative capacity of architecture, while also engaging with fundamental questions of contemporary culture, form, and materiality.
