Julian Palacio Architecture Studio/JPAS is a New York-based design practice established in 2014. 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 and cultural spaces to private residences, interiors, and temporary installations.

Central to our work is an interest in crafting thoughtful structures and environments to foster new ways of living and interacting with one another and the world around us. With every project we engage in a collaborative dialogue with partners, clients, consultants and fabricators to materialize an optimistic belief in the transformative capacity of architecture, while engaging with fundamental questions of rituals, form and tectonics.
