Twenty-five years ago Sara Caples, AIA, founded Caples Jefferson Architects PC with Everardo Jefferson, AIA. Three commitments have remained the firm’s core values:

– Perform at least 50% of our work for the community, for a broader public,
especially in poor neighborhoods underserved by designers.

– Base each project on intensive research to uncover deepened layers
particular to each individual place.

– Look into these multiple layers for fulfilling connections between the
conceptual and the physical that zero in on the unique potential of that
