THESIS Studio is founded and operated by Colin Jensen, an alumni of the University of Oregon’s Graduate School of Architecture.  After practicing at a local architecture firm for several years following graduation, Colin found himself drawn to a growing body of residential work that came to him through a network of friends, colleagues, and family.  Captivated by the hands-on design process inherent in residential projects, and buoyed by his degree in business and background building small businesses, Colin elected to found THESIS Studio in 2016 and take his side work “full-time.”

Colin prides himself in a humanistic and empathetic approach to design, his ability to wear numerous hats during the course of a project, and a glass-half-full mentality that leads him to see the potential in even the most challenging design problems.  When not designing, Colin is active in renovating a 1923 bungalow in NE Portland  he shares with his girlfriend Jessica, a Realtor, as well as sailing, cycling, and traveling whenever he can.
