A highly nimble architectural all woman-owned firm, atelierjones has been devoted to the vision that design can engender large scale sustainable changes in our carbon intensive US building industry since inception in 2003. A design-award winning firm, atelierjones is a national leader in implementing innovative lower carbon construction technologies at scale to help lower the carbon footprint of the industry. atelierjones completed four of the first mass timber projects permitted in the US: a single-family house, a church, and two modular CLTSchools. Current design projects in their Seattle office include a 66,000 SF 126 unit workforce housing project, one of the first 8-story mass timber Type IVC projects in the US, a prefabricated mass timber workforce housing project, and a mass timber modular house under construction.

Founder, Susan Jones, a national leader in the mass timber community, represented over 90,000 architects on behalf of the American Institute of Architects in 2016 to successfully change American building codes to allow tall mass timber buildings up to 18 stories in the US. The firm's research work also includes working with The Nature Conservancy and the USDA on a series of grants to test life-cycle analyses for Mass Timber, as well as directing fire testing of Mass Timber in the US and internationally.  In 2018, she published a book, Mass Timber | Design and Research, which was launched in New York City, London, Tokyo and Seattle.  

Susan earned her B.A from Stanford in Philosophy, and her M.Arch from the Harvard GSD. She is licensed in multiple states, has been a visiting design critic at numerous universities, and is Affiliate Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington. She was made a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2010.
