Jeremy David Morton
I am a 22 year-old fifth-year student in Drexel University's Bachelor of Architecture 2+4 program and photography minor program from Maui, Hawaii.
I was born in Kennesaw, Georgia and moved to Maui, Hawaii when I was 5 years old. From my travels abroad, I have been able to experience some of the masterpieces of world architecture, art, and the incredible cultures of other societies.
Growing up on the island of Maui, Hawaii, as a part of a community where “ohana,” (Hawaiian for family) is the way of life, I have learned that finding a balance between taking charge through self direction and collaboration with others is integral to the success of most all communities.
My goal as a future architect is to create beautiful, luxurious, tailored, environmentally responsible spaces that are memorable and meaningful through the engagement of the mind, emotions, and the senses of the user. Spaces which leave the user to pause and reflect whether they are the primary user, visitor, or simply someone passing by.
Over the past two years, I have been working at Champalimaud Design, a high-end interior design and architecture firm in New York. At Champalimaud I cultivated proficiency in design principles, standards, and balance of design. I worked with a team on substantial, complex hospitality and residential projects, including a luxury beach resort in Okinawa, Japan, a luxury hotel in Toronto, a high-end Park Avenue residence, and a condominium project in Miami. I contributed substantially to the interior design of these properties and helped execute chic, beautiful, well-planned, functional, trendy and luxurious spaces. I have a keen eye for design and space and love visualizing and executing plans that exceed a client’s expectations.
