We are architects, planners and designers. We believe that what we do matters to people’s lives, to the places they live and work, to the places they are educated and to the culture they have created and support. As a leading Philadelphia architecture firm, we believe that we contribute to the growth and security of our economy, and to the research, manufacturing and workplaces that drive it. In all of our work, we are responsible parties for effecting positive change.
Successful collaboration is essential to our practice. Listening well, communicating effectively and understanding how design can enhance our client’s business has built long-term relationships that go beyond individual projects. We believe that knowledge informs creativity. Our workflow is information-based, technologically-enabled, and committed to sustainability as the foundation for high-performance design. Our projects around the globe inform those around the region, each adding to a knowledge base that is the source for new ideas and positive change in building design. Since 1981, JacobsWyper has helped clients in the pharmaceutical, higher education, mission critical, industrial and corporate sectors stay competitive and succeed in rapidly-changing environments.
In 2014, JacobsWyper welcomed SaylorGregg Architects to the firm as a studio, a merger of firms alike in culture and complementary in project experience. In our combined 75 years in practice, JacobsWyper and SaylorGregg have developed firm cultures that attract great people who believe that design matters. The strength of our collaboration benefits clients because the best of both firms’ design and planning capabilities is behind each project.
