Eddie Jones is founder and principal of Jones Studio. Born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma, Eddie moved to the desert shortly after graduating from Oklahoma State University and began his own studio in his spare bedroom in 1979. For over forty years he has led our studio with persistent optimism through both his enduring commitment to sustainability and his intrepid spirit for innovative design.

Eddie holds the rare ability to create responsive architecture, timeless in design yet bound distinctively to its place. His sense for space, materials, and detail—inspired by nature and those who came before—is the foundation of all our work. With principal Brian Farling, Eddie works closely with clients to craft a shared vision and lead all aspects of design from concept through construction.

Eddie has lectured widely throughout North America, Europe, and Asia and is active in numerous civic and academic committees with a focus on design excellence, education, community impact, and sustainability. He recently published a monograph on the studio’s private residential work titled Sensual Modernism.
