About Epstein Joslin Architects, Inc.

EJA believes the house to be the most intimate setting—one that touches upon almost all aspects of one’s personal and social endeavors.

Thus, your house should be a place of purpose, dignity, and distinction that

  • enhances and celebrates life’s daily rituals;
  • fosters pride in its unique natural or urban setting;
  • brings together inside and outside in a mutually enriching relationship;
  • offers a rich variety of spaces to suit your needs for privacy and sociability;
  • celebrates the variety and beauty of materials and light;
  • employs resources with prudence and responsibility; and belongs fully and specifically to you, its owner.
