Jhilmil Jha, RA


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.
