Almost anyone can design for themselves… but a great architect is able to understand the vision of others and create something distinctive and extraordinary for them.


Jim McIntosh has been a licensed architect in California for the past 30 years, however, JMA Architects is much more than that; We have an innate ability to understand the client’s vision, communicate with them in a calm, kind, professional manner, and provide a finished product that exceeds expectations!! Our ability to sense the parameters that drive an architectural design solution is widely recognized and appreciated.  JMA has extensive experience in custom residential projects, including new home design, large re-models, additions as well as selective commercial buildings. These projects can be seen throughout the Palm Springs area, Bend Oregon, Coeur d’Alene Idaho, and as far away as the Island of Barbados. 

Each project is unique and deserves its own individual and personalized design. Building projects come with their own special set of variables, including the site, its topography, and solar orientation, to name a few.  To that end, our strengths are both academic and practical. JMA has significant experience in construction management and field supervision. As a general architectural practice, JMA Architecture, Inc., along with their consultants, provide a full range of design and engineering services, from conceptual ideas through the completion of construction.
