The poetic rigor of Jason Smith and Signe Smith’s architectural work reminds me that all great architects seem to come from a strong architectural family tree. This husband and wife architectural team, with degrees from the University of Texas at Austin, have worked with exemplary firms, providing them a launching pad for their thriving firm, doing precise and exciting modern work for extraordinary clients with a refined aesthetic.
Signe and Jason experienced the craft and the problem solving of Lawrence Speck when Jason worked as the project architect on the renovation of the Bud Oglesby house on Turtle Creek. The reductionist influence of Lionel Morrison can be seen as Jason Smith worked in his early years at morrisonseifertmurphy. Jason Smith continually repeats and refines his best design solutions. Signe and Jason approach the penthouse of the Omni in Fort Worth with their experience as project architects when they worked for Emily Summers on the penthouse of the W hotel in Dallas.
Jason Smith and Signe Smith draw from global influences that they tailor to the region in which they work. While their designs vary, their theme of light, integrating exterior and interior spaces, how one approaches the home, and construction quality remains consistent.
