JAMES HAYNES  joined Clinton + Company Architects in July of 2015.  He holds a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Texas at Austin.  James was the recipient of the AIA Austin Studio of the Year award in 2009.

Prior to joining Clinton + Company, James worked for Kinney Franke Architects in San Angelo, Texas for 5+ years. While there he gained experience in a broad range of project types including commercial, civic, institutional, landscape architecture, and residential.  James was the lead designer for the 2015 West Texas AIA Merit Award for the 1st Presbyterian Church Activity Center.

A painter in his spare time, James brings a thoughtful design eye to each project regardless of scale.  He has lived abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as Florence, Italy, where he gained invaluable insight into architectural history and form.  His approach to design is through a holistic method where meaningful spaces are possible through thoughtful material choices, implementation of natural lighting, and sustainable methods.  James believes architecture is most successful when it creates a place that evokes memory, creates wonder, and ultimately inspires.

JESS KING  joined Clinton + Company Architects in November of 2017.  She holds a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture.  Before her Masters, Jess received her undergraduate degree in Interior Design at University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  

Prior to joining Clinton + Company, Jess worked for Callison RTKL focusing on large scale Healthcare projects.  There, she gained experience in project documentation, programming, and the design development process. This provided her a foundation of experience and knowledge that she applies to the details and rigor of more intimately scaled projects. 

Jess is inspired by the conversations, gestures, and personalities within the design process that make it authentically human. She believes beauty can be found in all aspects of design, from the broad ideas down to the details. This approach, along with thorough and thoughtful investigation, allows for every project, in turn, to inspire those who experience it. To her, practicing architecture is a study in how spaces reflect and relate to humanity, nature, and light. The resulting built environment weaves these aspects together to create what fascinates us: a true sense of place and belonging.
