JANET FOZ JACOBS

Senior Project Lead

Janet Foz Jacobs exudes a quiet confidence, and lets her work speak for itself.  She brings more than two decades of experience to ORANGEWALLstudios, having served leadership roles in large-scale healthcare, education and multi-use housing projects. 

Whether she’s designing through the constraints of a public school system’s budget or incorporating rigorous technical requirements into a research facility, she prides herself on her ability to provide deft planning, concise communication and polished, meticulous drawings and documents, on time and on target. 

Janet brings this eye for detail to every element of the relationship with a client, adeptly handling everything required to meet a project’s success criteria—coordinating with fellow team members and consultants or simply knowing the right questions to ask to keep the client’s team organized and on task.

She knows that despite similarities, no two projects are ever the same and believes a successful architect constantly evolves to meet the challenges of new work, acquiring skills and embracing new approaches from partners across the project.
