The original principals came together in 1995 leading to the formation of the Jensen Chambers Young Ltd practice. Their prime objective is to provide quality design solutions and professional service through the vast experience and skill base of the team at JCY.

Since its inception, the company has grown and accumulated considerable experience in all facets of the architectural profession through a wide variety of completed projects. From this experience the team at JCY is able to provide a wide range of services.  JCY Architects has four principal Directors and comprises a team of 12 Architects, graduates, CAD technicians and is an accredited practice with the NZ Institute of Architects.

In April 2012 JCY opened a satellite office in Queenstown.

With the support of the Auckland based team this office offers the same range of full professional services, design acumen and experience.
