J_spy was founded in 2012 by husband and wife, Jason Shannon and Paola Yañez. Our work is modern and strives to find simple, pure forms, to respond to the program and site conditions. We start each project by engaging with our client to understand their program and project goals, but also more broadly to understand how this project fits into their lives. We then begin the design process by looking for something unique from this initial discussion with our client, to be the inspiration for the project trajectory. Because of this, our work responds very well to each client’s unique goals.
J_spy has experience successfully working projects through the NYC Department of Buildings and Landmarks Preservation Commission. We offer full architecture and design services.
J_spy's work has been featured in Dwell Magazine, NY Post, Dezeen, ArchDaily, among others.
