Who We Are
JLA Architects was established in 2007 by Joseph Lee in Madison, Wis. In 2017, we opened a second office in the Historic Third Ward of Milwaukee to better serve our Eastern Wisconsin clients. We opened our third office in Denver, Colorado in the fall of 2021. As a client service-based firm, we collaboratively work with clients to develop creative, real-world solutions that meet their project’s goals. We assist clients at every phase of the real estate development process from project feasibility to building construction and final marketing.
Our team members believe that architecture is not the result of a lone genius, but the result of a community.

BE YOUR PARTNER FROM BEGINNING TO END

In our minds, it's bad business to "nickel & dime" our clients; so we don't do it
