JIA is a contemporary architecture practice founded by architect Kate Jackson and designer Mathew Ingham.


Our practice has a textured modernist approach to design with a belief in the balance between the contemporary principles of space planning and a sympathetic approach to context through the selection of vernacular materials and forms.


Since establishing the practice, our approach to design has successfully obtained planning permissions for various complex and challenging locations, specifically green belt, conservation areas and flood zones 2-3.


Our work encompasses a range of scale and experience: from masterplans to houses, to pavilions to 40sqm apartments. We execute our projects with the same ethos: to maximise the potential of space with volume and light. Fundamental to this process is our regard for locally sourced materials and bespoke craftsmanship wherever possible.


The practice can deliver all stages of work from the RIBA 2013 Plan of Work. For more information on our services, fees and typical construction programme, please click here.
