Principal, AIA, LEED AP
Jamie Farmer is a Jackson native. He considered following in his father’s footsteps and pursuing a career in construction, but discovered an artistic and creative outlet in architecture. He graduated from Montana State University in 2007 with a master’s degree in architecture after discovering a passion for modern design, which led him to return to his hometown and a job at Carney Logan Burke Architects. The firm offered a chance to work on high-end modern homes and to live somewhere with a great quality of life.
He started his own firm, Caliber Architecture, in Jackson in 2014 before merging businesses with his former colleague Scott Payne to create Farmer Payne Architects in 2017.
Jamie is able to meld his understanding of construction with his love of pushing designs to create homes that are unique, but still buildable. He loves testing what is possible and is always questioning conventional forms, asking why something has to be done a certain way, or why not do it another way instead. Too often people get stuck in ideas that have been done before; Jamie likes to work with clients to push creativity to create something totally new and original.
Jamie serves on the Town of Jackson’s Planning Commission. He has been named one of Jackson’s top architects multiple years in the Best of Jackson Hole contest put on by the newspaper Planet Jackson Hole.
Depending on the season, Jamie is skiing or snowmobiling, kayaking or fishing, or trail running or mountain biking when he’s not working.
