jaa studio profile

Our practice restructured in 2009, with a fresh new approach to the studio environment and its work manifesto. Formerly known as Jahn Associates Architects, we re-branded with the name jaa studio to reflect this. The practice now over 22 years old, draws on an extensive body of work and is continually growing.

jaa studio is a multi-award winning design consultancy located in Sydney, Australia. jaa studio has considerable experience in single and multiple residential design, urban design and interior design. The practice has worked on new houses, warehouse conversions, alterations and additions and apartment projects throughout Australia. Master planning commissions include the Bondi Junction Town Centre proposal, Bondi Junction Urban Design Master Plan and Lakeside Village near Penrith.

From 1988 to June 2009, the practice was headed by Graham Jahn LFRAIA Hon AIA Hon FPIA. Graham is now the Director - City Planning and Regulatory Services at the City of Sydney and has no financial interest in the practice. The current director is now Yarek Alexander, formerly Associate Director with the practice for over 15 years. Marisa Nardone, who has been with the practice for ten years and formerly an Associate, is now Associate Director for the practice.

The new jaa studio manifesto looks to incorporate architecture where strong concepts dominate and create the extraordinary.
