Emerson Design Studio is a full-service architecture firm specializing in custom home design, residential architecture and design consulting. We work with builders, developers and, most frequently, individual clients and homeowners. The relationships we develop with clients and the collaborations we forge with builders, craftsmen and other designers are the basis of our business.

We design new homes, remodels, renovations and additions, as well as provide design consulting services that range in scale from kitchen design concepts to development-wide design guidelines. Our work can be found throughout Nebraska -- in Columbus, Omaha, Gretna, Plattsmouth, Osceola, Schuyler and rural Platte, Colfax, Saline, Stanton and Knox counties. The locations where we work continue to expand with each new project.

Regardless of the design challenge, Emerson Design Studio is committed to bringing enthusiasm, expertise, creativity and professionalism to every project.



"I love the open concept of my home. It flows wonderfully and is great for entertaining. It is a very comfortable home. I love all the beautiful big windows and the cool extras... Someone made the comment, "There are so many beautiful things, I don't know what to look at first." I couldn't be happier!!!"

"Jeremy's work ethic, creativity and attention to detail were exactly what we were looking for in a designer. He cared as much about every inch of the plan as we did. He made a potentially stressful process fun and easy."

Originally from Columbus, Nebraska, Jeremy Emerson has more than a decade of residential architecture experience working on projects throughout eastern Nebraska and around the world.

Jeremy has worked for top architecture and interior design firms in London, including Foster + Partners (www.fosterandpartners.com) and Rui Ribeiro Interiors (www.ruiribeirostudio.com) where he learned to design, execute and manage projects to world-class standards. He also spent several years developing new homes, residential remodels, and commercial spaces in Nebraska and South Dakota with Steven Ginn Architects.

Jeremy designed his first custom home for a private client on a rural site north of Norfolk, Nebraska in 2010. The rewarding experience led him to open Emerson Design Studio to focus on residential architecture and custom homes in Nebraska - including a new home for his parents overlooking a cornfield outside of Columbus, Nebraska. Though he has since relocated to London with his British wife, Jeremy continues to undertake residential projects for select private clients in Nebraska. Jeremy is a licensed architect.
