Jeremy David Morton
I am a 23 year-old thesis student in Drexel University's Bachelor of Architecture 2+4 program and photography minor program from Maui, Hawaii.
I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Maui, Hawaii since 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 three years, I have been working as a Designer at Champalimaud Design, a multi-disciplinary design firm in New York's Financial District. At Champalimaud I have cultivated proficiency in design principles, standards, and balance. I work with an extremely talented team on complex and well-curated hospitality and residential projects, including a luxury beach resort in Okinawa, Japan, a luxury hotel in Toronto, a high-end Park Avenue residence, hotel project in Miami. I contribute substantially to the interior design of these properties and helped execute chic, beautiful, well-planned, functional, trendy and luxurious spaces. I have developed a keen eye for design and space and love visualizing and executing plans that exceed a client’s expectations.
More recently, I have led design, project management, and document production of a residence in Palm Beach.
