Often people wonder whether Jenkins Baer Associates is a firm that strictly works on either residential or commercial projects. While most of our clients request our services to beautify their homes, we’ve also designed a notable amount of restaurants, venues for events, and retail stores. Most recently, the owner of JBA, Jay Jenkins, had the pleasure of working on the then soon-to-be-opened new location for the Ruth Shaw boutique. With the help of his project manager, Jennifer Lynn, and Architectural Associate & Draftsman, Jack Jahncke, Jay took on this venture for most of 2017 to what has now become an aesthetic game-changer at the Shops at Kenilworth shopping center. Here’s a glimpse of the journey from start to finish.

Working on projects from start to finish, seeing the complete design in its glory, is one of the rewards that us here at JBA enjoy the most. More to come!
