JDSA is a multidisciplinary office that focuses on architecture and design, from large scale planning to furniture. Rich with multiple expertises, our office is fuelled by talented designers and experienced architects that jointly develop projects from early sketches to on-site supervision. All of which, regardless of scale, outlines an approach that is affirmatively social in its outcome, enthusiastic in its ambition and professional in its process. At the core of our architecture is the ability to take a fresh look at design issues through experienced eyes. Our approach aims at turning intense research and analysis of practical and theoretical matters into the driving forces of design. By continuously developing rigorous methods of analysis and execution, JDS is able to combine innovative thinking and efficient production.

Founded and directed by Julien De Smedt (co-founder of PLOT), JDSA has a diverse and strong team based in Copenhagen, Denmark. We work with corporate, government and private clients in numerous countries to realize civic, residential, office, commercial, healthcare, educational, and waterfront development projects. We carefully limit the commissions we take on to help ensure a high degree of professional attention and overall project quality. JDSA envisions itself as a proactive partner for its client, rather than a consultant. The office has a wide portfolio of international work and the attitude of involving external experts to improve the design intelligence of its team.
