This episode we’re joined by Camille Jobe and Ada Corral, architects featured on the AIA Austin Homes Tour 2020.
JOBE CORRAL ARCHITECTS specializes in the design of well detailed and highly crafted structures using authentic materials. We work with the knowledge that a great project springs from a deep understanding of the site, a respectful and transparent relationship with our clients, and a full comprehension of the program. Paying close attention to these factors, and to how our clients actually live and use a space, informs our process and allows us to create a unique concept for every project. Construction quality is paramount in every Jobe Corral project, and a strong contractor-team collaboration is integral to the overall process, resulting in structures that are built to last. Jobe Corral Architects is 100% women-owned-and-operated and based in central Austin.
CAMILLE U. JOBE, AIA Principal Camille Jobe has practiced architecture for over 25 years, and her experience ranges from commercial and educational spaces, to hospitality and lifestyle projects. A native Texan, Camille’s awareness of architecture came early in her life, having grown up in a house designed by a great architect. Her formal journey to the drawing board began at Texas A&M, where she received her degree in Environmental Design, and later at The University of California at Berkeley where she earned a Master’s Degree in Architecture. Her training in San Francisco influenced Camille’s mature eye for design and keen understanding for how complex and challenging ideas can be built. Camille is a registered architect in Texas and an active leader in the community, including Leadership Austin, The Junior League of Austin, and The Austin Rowing Club. Currently she is serving as the 2020 Treasurer for the AIA Austin chapter. Outside the office, Camille is an avid cook, enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons, and rowing on Ladybird Lake with her crew.

A natural leader who was brought up to value service, Ada works professionally and personally to improve the quality of life and the built environment in Austin.
