FORA.tv Speaker - Jonathan Davis
pieceHomes are designed by Davis Studio Architecture + Design (dsA+D), the husband and wife design team of architect Jonathan Davis and designer Mary Jo Davis.
Jonathan Davis is a licensed Architect in California and Washington with more than 27 years of experience and brings a unique perspective to each project. As a young architect, Jonathan worked at Gehry and Associates contributing to such project as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the German Utility Building, one of the first green buildings in Europe. Prior to forming dsA+D, he had a solo practice in which he designed and built projects throughout the United States. His first custom home, designed over 25 years ago, was built to a high green standard. The house incorporated solar hot water panels, geo-thermal wells for heating and cooling, heat-recovery units behind the fireplaces, as well as a self-contained sewage treatment plant that put out pure water right at the lakefront and used recycled brick throughout the house. Jonathan was also the general contractor on the job -- so he knows green inside and out. In fact, you could say that building is in his blood. Jonathan was born in London, England into a family that owns the second oldest family owned building business in England and knew from an early age that he was to be an architect. He went on to complete his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan and his Master of Architecture at SCI-ARC, Southern California Institute of Architecture with an additional year at Architectural Association in London, England.
