Creative Studio

The JSA studio is a creative and vibrant practice. Everyone on the team is knowledgeable about each project and contributes to the design, development, and coordination for each and every client. All projects are managed laterally, thereby allowing the entire team to input their knowledge, expertise, creative talents, ideas and expressions. This collaboration allows us to bring clients directly into our process which help ensures that expectations are set, met, and many times exceeded. This approach is the reason why JSA has had the honor of watching our clients succeed and return to us so often when they are ready to pursue their next big dream.

Our studio structure is well-organized with weekly production meetings, overall project scheduling, follow-up and centralized email. Designers are able to study material, color, and spatial issues by utilizing 3D visualizations of any project. This allows complicated details to be worked out prior to construction and provides clients with the opportunity to visualize the completed project. JSA staff is trained to keep up with the ever-changing computer world and all its work is produced utilizing the latest version of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software.

John Snyder Architects main office is located in Ithaca, NY and a Clifton Park office serves clients in the Albany, Hudson Valley regions of NY.
