Growing up as one of eight children, says Patrick Brian Jones, he “always tried to create a sense of order in the midst of chaos.” Since earning an architecture degree at Catholic University, he has continued on the same path, gaining a range of experience at boutique design firms in DC for 13 years before launching Patrick Brian Jones, PLLC, in 2011.
“I design spaces that are sophisticated yet simple, that reflect the needs and lifestyles of those who inhabit them,” he relates. “I specify materials carefully, suggesting environmentally responsible products when possible, but always ensuring each new space will withstand the test of time.”
The sole proprietor of his firm, Jones regularly works with outside consultants and teams with other architects on larger projects. His architectural training has made him as comfortable in the studio meeting with clients as he is in the field working with contractors.
“I think the key to executing a well-designed home lies in listening to clients and being able to interpret their needs,” he notes. “That’s how I create spaces that are functional and interesting, often incorporating experimental elements in subtle and restrained ways.”
Projects by Jones have appeared in nine publications over the past nine years, including Home & Design’s Late Spring 2020 issue.
