Jasper Crace Headshot

Jasper Crace

Project Manager

Jasper joined The Brooklyn Studio in 2019 after earning his Master’s in Architecture from Dalhousie University in his hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Jasper also holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies and completed four years of a Bachelor of Arts in Music.

Jasper’s passion for architecture and building emerged during his undergraduate studies in music. He spent his summers and several full years between degrees building bespoke homes in Nova Scotia with a small construction crew. As a result of this experience, Jasper loves problem solving in the field and working directly with craftspeople to bring his projects to fruition.

Prior to The Brooklyn Studio, Jasper worked at Architecture 49 in Halifax, and spent a year abroad working at Peddle Thorp Architects in Melbourne, Australia. In his spare time, Jasper is a fanatical pool player and hopes to one day compete in the US Open.
