Jefferson Ellinger, Nona Yehia E/YE DESIGN

E/Ye Desig  is a practice of architects Nona Yehia and Jefferson Ellinge. Architect Nona Yehia received her Master of Architecture in 1997 from Columbia University. After graduation she had the honor of working with professors Jesse Reiser + Nanako Umemoto on a range of projects including large scale cultural projects and innovative residences. Jefferson Ellinger received his Masters of Architecture from Columbia University after completing his B.S. in Architecture from the Ohio State University. Upon graduation, Ellinger worked for such esteemed architects as Peter Eisenmann and Greg Lynn. In 2002, Jefferson and Nona partnered to form Ellinger / Yehia Architects or E/Ye Design.

Shortly thereafter the pair were selected by the Museum of Modern Art to compete in the Young Architects Competition. In 2003 Nona and Jefferson brought E/Ye Design to Jackson, Wyoming. Each project undertaken by the firm is treated as part of a continuous exploration: one that investigates the cross section between architecture, landscape and sustainability via an understanding of inter-relationships between form, material and flow. Nona is very active in the community in Jackson and has served on a multitude of boards including the Center for the Arts, the Grand Teton Music Festival and the Art Association of Jackson Hole. Jefferson is an Associate Professor at University of North Carolina, Charlotte and specializes in sustainable design technique as applied to the discipline of architecture.
