Stephan Jaklitsch received his BS in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology and M-Arch from Princeton University. As Principal of his firm since 1998, he has taken his practice from a studio focused on residential and commercial projects in the New York region to an award-winning architectural firm with a diverse, international portfolio of work. Today, with several hundred completed projects around the world, Jaklitsch has seen his work exhibited in New York, Chicago, and London, and featured in prominent international publications. Through his work, Jaklitsch seeks to explore the poetry of architecture – using the manipulation of space and light to create rigorously detailed spaces that convey a sense of meaning and purpose to their respective contexts.
In addition to running his practice, Jaklitsch serves as Vice President of openhousenewyork and is actively involved in The Design Trust for Public Space, Design Trust Council; The Architectural League of New York, Process Committee; The Van Alen Institute for Architecture and Design, Van Alen Circle; and Friends of the High Line; and member of the New York City’s Beekeepers Association.
