A self-described "Jake of All Trades", Mr. Augunas transcends the realms of art, language, technology, and architecture, and constantly seeks to synthesize these elements into his work. After earning his Bachelor and Master degrees in architecture, he came to San Francisco on vacation and never left. Jacob has worked in architecture offices, enterprise software companies, structural engineering firms, interior design boutiques, and even as on the cooking line in restaurants, and he leverages this broad background in all of his work.
After enthusiastically joining CCS in 2019, he quickly found technological opportunities to enhance the office's capabilities, in ways he considers 'force multipliers', to ensure that the office is operating at its sharpest potential. As Job Captain and Technology Lead, he identifies and executes technological strategies to maximize office efficiency, while maintaining the highest level of architectural quality.
Jacob is a San Francisco enthusiast at heart, and is very proud to be designing houses and restaurants in the city where his parents met and opened a constellation of pizzerias.
