La Jolla Architects - About Us

San Diego & La Jolla Architect

For more than 25 years, Jeffrey D Shorn + Associates, Architects has been proudly offering professional architectural design services. Our firm of licensed California architects have a depth of knowledge and practical experience from working on most types of projects from designing multi-family and single family residential projects to architectural work on larger scale government, community, commercial and historical preservation projects. Personal attention to our clients always comes first. We take the time to listen to you, ensuring we fully understand your vision for your project. From there we make recommendations and offer advice required to make sure the architectural project is sound, meets the appropriate codes and can be well executed within your budget.


We believe that our clients know best when it comes to their own environment; we do not pretend to "know better" and offer a design solution that does not suit your situation or needs. We do encourage a "back and forth" dialogue that helps build a clear understanding of the project's scope including program, budget and schedule.


We welcome challenges to the possible design solution as this ensures a truly shared creative process resulting in a solution we both can be proud of.

Living AIDS Memorial Competition

Quilting.... as a sense of community

"The AIDS Quilt blankets the world of 
prejudice and fear with a sign of hope
and sews a collective human face on this
disease to heal the bitterness between people"

                                  ....The 'NAMES' Project


The quote above was the inspiration for Jeffrey Shorn + 
Vonn Marie May's winning design solution for a Living AIDS
Memorial in Balboa Park, San Diego
