Jhilmil “Jhil” Jha is an Illinois licensed Architect who recently moved from Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs to join Ross Barney Architects. Jhil was raised in India and South Africa, graduating with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Cape Town. These experiences have informed a deep appreciation for the role context plays in shaping architectural language and spatial utilization.
Having worked on a variety of project typologies and at various scales, from commercial to residential and religious, Jhil brings a wealth of knowledge to the design process – from permitting to building occupancy.
Outside the studio, Jhil enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and a crazy beagle named Toby. You can often catch her cheering from the stands at her daughter’s tennis matches.
