Jennifer Tart Thompson
Associate Principal, Interiors Studio Leader
Austin, Texas USA
Even more than aesthetics, Jennifer is drawn to creating efficient and effective spaces to help people in their everyday lives. Jennifer shares that people-watching informs her approach to design: “I observe how spaces affect people and analyze what frustrates individuals in a space, or what brings them happiness.”
As the leader of the Interiors Studio in Austin, Jennifer is the day-to-day contact for building client relationships and leading her team and consultants in project deliverables. Her vast range of clients in Austin includes Grubhub, Hero Digital, Fat Quarter, and JPMorgan Chase. She especially enjoyed her recent work on Auctane, the Interiors team’s largest Austin project yet. Completed at the height of the pandemic, the project posed a unique set of challenges, pushing her ability to create interiors where people can thrive and be happy. “I want to shape the reasons people leave their homes to go to the office,” she says.
