James L. Escobar - AIA. NCARB. LEED AP

Principal Architect

From childhood, founder and principal James Escobar (Jim) knew he was to change the world through the practice of architecture. With a passion for art and growing up in a home where construction was a weekly activity, he developed all the resources necessary to not only know how to build, but how to design. Winning design competitions early in high school launched him on a successful journey through college and internships, where he excelled while working for several different architectural firms learning the “best way to do it”.

After much travel around the country design-building multimillion-dollar projects, Jim decided that raising his family near his hometown of Meridian, Idaho provided the best opportunities for life. In addition to his community involvement with the Entrepreneur’s Organization, Urban Development and Charter Schools, Jim stays very busy bustling through life, is dedicated to his bride and their four children. In addition, having a very solid spiritual foundation has allowed him to integrate deep philosophical beliefs in every aspect of his life. A foundation platform Jim believes strongly in is that people like working with people they like, and there is only one way to like them… through honesty and integrity. There are no coincidences, and only exact perfection leading us to the goals of our lives.

Jeremy Putman

Director of Design

Jeremy brings 15 years experience working in architecture starting as a drafter and now working toward licensure. He has experience managing project teams from proposal to project close out. His knowledge of building codes and construction systems has helped increase coordination between consultants and the architectural team. The result; detailed construction documents that are approved by jurisdictional review with fewer comments while succinctly describing the work to be done by the contractor.

Jeremy lives and works in Meridian with his wife and three children. He is active in his church community teaching and leading local Bible studies. He enjoys reading, photography, and mountain biking in his spare time.
