As a builder or developer, do your buyers live the way their parents or grandparents lived? Probably not. Don’t they prefer an open floor plan, larger rooms, seamless flow, and amenities that simply didn’t exist 50 years ago?

Today you may be selling primarily to singles or growing families. Years from now, multiple generations may all live together in that same home. That’s why JD+A designs homes that appeal to a wide range of ages and lifestyles. We want your buyers and their loved ones to live comfortably today, and for all days to come.


JD+A has designed more than 1,500 floor plans in four states which currently house nearly 100,000 individuals.


JD+A listens first, then develops appropriate solutions to create a competitive advantage through high impact design solutions that are cost effective and intended to sell.


JD+A understands how people want to live in a home. We bring this knowledge into our innovative single-family and multi-family residential designs.

Homes that feel different

We have a proven track record of designing successful neighborhoods that have personality and character, while delivering on efficiency of production.

We seek to create homes and community spaces that immediately feel right so that your buyers can unpack, settle in, relax, and explore. There’s no place like a JD+A home.

When you’re ready to plan your next neighborhood or community, contact us. Our process and approach will add value to each residence and to your community as a whole.

Livable Design™

Livable Design is the essence of building better, noticeably different living spaces. It’s a concept we co-created with Eskaton (leaders in senior living). We now apply it to all of our work. It’s about designing from the inside out, thinking like the people who will inhabit each residence. We then create elements – internal space, external space, interstitial space – to delight homeowners and guests at every turn.

Architecture Within Reach

We believe everyone deserves to live in an architect-designed, beautiful, functional home. That’s why we work so closely with custom homebuilders like you to deliver your clients’ dream within their budget. We bring our production mindset to deliver custom homes that are structurally efficient, saving construction cost so that your clients can allocate budget to the high impact, high touch aspects of the home that they’ll appreciate on a daily basis.
