Q & A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Design is an iterative process that begins with the client, project program and site, whether it be an existing building or virgin landscape.  Style, experience, space and views are developed as a result of the client and site, not imposed upon them.  I provide innovative solutions that are clear, honest, and thoughtful through collaborative relationships with artisans, fabricators, materials suppliers and contractors to shape space and surface in unique ways.  Modern and reclaimed materials are used in ways that go beyond their traditional or expected use.  Sustainable building and site development is fundamental and integral to all of my work.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I began my career working as a designer for the global architecture firm of Kohn Pedersen Fox in New York, and 4 years supporting Michael Arad and his award winning design for the World Trade Center Memorial.  I then spent 7 years creating and leading the internal Store Design team for lifestyle retailer, Anthropologie, overseeing all domestic projects, their bricks and mortar launch into the UK/EU marketplace, and sister wedding brand, BHLDN.  STUDIOrobert jamieson was formed in 2001 as an outlet for exploration of ideas outside of these professional contexts, and continued as a full time endeavor beginning in 2014.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Generally, my services are based on a % of total construction costs.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Know your budget going into the project and work with the pro to make the most of that budget.  Starting with goals that are beyond your means takes the fun out of the process if the project has to be dialed back significantly to build it.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

If you have a certain aesthetic that you are after, making sure that your pro gets it, and consequently you like the work that they have done for other clients.
