Studio Profile

Carlos Jiménez Studio (CJS) is an award winning, internationally recognized firm based in Houston. Carlos Jiménez, principal and lead designer is actively involved in all stages of design for each project – from the initial phase through development, planning, construction to completion. Since founded in 1983, CJS has striven for excellence in design through projects ranging in scale, type and locality: from an art studio building facing the serene Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts to a corporate headquarters along a busy freeway in Indiana, from a house in the sparse hills of Marfa to the lively streets of North Philadelphia, from a daycare center in Columbus to a Data Center in Houston; from a residential tower in the satellite city of Evry to a community center in the medieval traces of Gandia. Carlos Jiménez Studio thrives in the collaboration with our clients and consultants to resolve the demands of program, address the circumstances of site, and arrive at the optimum design solution. We perceive this collaboration to be the critical and creative means to expand the multiple aspirations implicit to a work of architecture. Our convictions are strengthened by the belief that architecture makes a difference in people’s lives. We understand that a well-designed building is an investment of time whose return must benefit the lives of present and future users. We are inspired by the myriad nuances of the local as we are by the limitations of the global. We believe that architecture transforms, delights, and achieves its meaning through its gradual unfolding in time and place.
