JDD Studio (formerly James Dayton Design) is an award-winning architecture, planning, and interior design firm based in Minneapolis. Focusing on contemporary design solutions, our work includes projects in arts, educational, commercial, hospitality, worship, and residential contexts.

Founded in 1997 as James Dayton Design, today our firm is led by four partners, Robert Hunter, Abby Jensen, Patrick Regan, and Angela Varpness, who have over seventy years of combined experience leading the designs and day-to-day operations for all JDD’s projects.

JDD Studio’s mission is to create thoughtful, well-crafted spaces that serve clients well and contribute positively to the community in a creative and innovative way. The success of our projects across all metrics of client satisfaction and myriad building types is a testament to our design methodology. Central to our approach is a fundamental belief that environments should be unique expressions of their users. We believe that good partnerships make good architecture, and we are committed to providing creative and considered design solutions while never losing sight of the people at the heart of the process.
