Joe Jimenez AIA

Raised in the Midwest City of Wichita, Kansas, Joe was trained in the fine arts of sculpture, painting and figure drawing. He used that training in his architecture for the last 23 years since graduating from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1997. Joe has worked in the urban core of Kansas City in all but three of those 23 years in his professional practice. He founded Hermanos Design in March of 2015, with the vision of hands-on design with the fusion of art in architecture.

Joe will pummel you in a game of pool.
