Jonathan Severinghaus
Project Manager

Growing up in Vermont’s Connecticut River Valley, Jon’s early fascination with architecture began with observing the elegant vernacular farmhouses and barns near his family’s home, and the formal, even majestic, village homes and campus buildings in the communities surrounding Dartmouth College. Drawing buildings he saw, as well as exploring his own creations became a regular activity.

Curiosity with the built environment remained a key ingredient of Jon’s personality while studying Economics at St. Lawrence University, where he completed his degree in 2009. More recently, his experience building his own home reinvigorated a long-held passion for architecture and led him to complete a degree in Architectural & Building Engineering Technology at Vermont Technical College. 

“I am continually fascinated by the interplay between creativity and technical expertise in our field, and using this dynamic as the catalyst for exploratory problem solving with our clients.”

When not in the design studio, Jon can be found in Vermont's forests and hills with his wife and daughter, mountain biking, back country skiing, and dreaming up their next project.
