Jeremy Cook architect Springfield MO




One of my favorite things to do growing up was Sunday afternoon drives with my parents to look at unique houses in the Springfield, Missouri area. 42 years later, it is still one of my favorite Sunday afternoon activities.

It was that love for house design that drove me to attend Drury University, where I graduated with a Bachelor Of Architecture degree from the Hammons School Of Architecture. Since graduating with a degree in architecture, I have spent nearly 20 years working in local architecture firms on residential and commercial projects. I have a lot of unique experience, including design-build, meaning I was in charge of designing the project, then managing the construction of it. Note: I do not do any contracting now, only the design portion. My experiences have given me an edge on how to work with clients to develop the best possible design to fit their lifestyle needs, budget, and unique qualities my clients and projects bring to the table.


I am glad to discuss any potential project you may have. One of the biggest mistakes you can make in designing or building a home is underestimating the value  an experienced designer can bring to the table. Professional design services is certainly not the area to skip or cut, as it has the biggest impact for the $$$$ of anything involved in a successful project, guaranteed.

My services can be as simple as a one off meeting for advice or planning on a remodel, and can get as complex as a very detailed 3D model and construction drawings on a massive new build, and everything in between. In every service, you will be involved as much as possible to give you exactly what you want and expect.
