Diane R. Jacobs, AIA
Born in NYC, raised in Puerto Rico, educated in Tucson and trained in Boston, Diane has learned the value of individual stories, and multiple points of view. Her ability to work with client groups to create program driven designs result in places that express warmth, color, light and a respect for practicality and has led to a well-rounded portfolio of both large scale public work & intimate spaces in the private realm. Her work exploits ideas allied from disciplines including urban planning, environmental graphics, landscape architecture and lighting design. She founded Holly Street Studio in 1999 with the goal of bringing large firm expertise to local clients while maintaining the high level of service that a private practice firm affords.
