Hot Talent: Design Synergy

Patrick Brian Jones

Hot Talent: Design Synergy When Patrick Brian Jones headed for Catholic University to study architecture, a neighbor who had just become an architect herself gave him a gift of drafting supplies wrapped in a blueprint, with a card that read, “Architecture is about the things you see and how you see them: first you must see the beauty, then you may use it.”

Jones still finds meaning in these words after launching his own architecture and interior design firm in 2011. The move followed 10 years at DC’s Arcadia Design and another three at ColePrévost, where he worked with his former Catholic University professor, Robert Cole. “What attracted me to ColePrévost,” says Jones, “was the approach they take to both architecture and interiors. This synergy is critical in designing spaces.” 

Jones’s most ambitious project to date was the retrofit of an early-1900s Dupont Circle row house into a condo building. He now lives in one unit; the other two quickly sold. “There’s no way I could’ve done it without my design experience or knowing the business end,” says Jones. “I had no problem selling the units—and I got a nice place to live.”
