Arne O. Jorgensen, AIA / NCARB / LEED® AP / Principal Architect

A native of Jackson, Wyoming, Arne joined Bruce Hawtin, Architect in 1989, forming Hawtin Jorgensen Architects ten years later. Arne manages a variety of project types and has a long-standing interest and involvement in community planning, sustainable building, and housing issues. Arne is currently an emeritus and founding board member of the Jackson Hole Community Housing Trust, a nonprofit that provides affordable housing to individuals and families in our community. He is also an emeritus and past board member of the Wyoming Community Foundation, which funds a variety of nonprofit organizations.

Arne is currently serving on the Wyoming State Board of Architects and Landscape Architects; past member of the Yellowstone Sustainable Framework Design Team and Certification Task Force; and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He serves on the advisory board of the Jackson branch of First Interstate Bank. He has won two AIA Wyoming Awards and holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture from Montana State University.

“The physical area around the Town of Jackson is as remarkable as the people who live here. The combination of wild land and human community is unmatched.” Such awareness has compelled Arne to give back to his community. His architectural work has led to community involvement with a variety of organizations, including Wyoming Community Foundation and Jackson Hole Community Housing Trust.

In working with his clients, Arne enjoys it best when he can join them to explore site conditions in the full of Jackson’s unique weather patterns. He feels this experience helps both architect and client realize all the possibilities inherent in a building site. All his clients bring their own skill sets to the table, whether as a petroleum geologist, venture capitalist or IT specialist. Commercial and nonprofit clients benefit from Arne’s involvement because he wants the finished building to reflect their culture and values as well as ease their workload. “At Hawtin Jorgensen Architects, we try to be down to earth and unpretentious in our approach.”

You can find Arne cruising the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone or camping at Leigh Lake in Grand Teton National Park during summer getaways with his wife and daughter; hiking in the mountains above the Elk Refuge with Agate, the family dog.
