CAMILLE URBAN JOBE, AIA
Camille Jobe, AIA, practiced architecture for 20 years before joining Ada Corral to form Jobe Corral Architects. Her experience includes an array of project types, from commercial and educational spaces to hospitality and lifestyle projects.
A native Texan, Camille’s awareness of architecture and great houses came early in her life, having grown up in a house designed by a great architect. Her formal journey to the drawing board and residential design began in the Northeast where she first studied engineering at Boston University, followed by Environmental Design at Texas A&M. She then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Architecture from The University of California at Berkeley, where she won the Berkeley AIA Certificate of Merit Award. She became an adjunct faculty at Berkeley and practiced architecture in San Francisco at the Modernist firm, Holt Hinshaw, before going solo with Urban Jobe Architecture. This broad training has influenced and informed Camille’s mature eye for design and especially keen understanding for how complex and challenging ideas can be built.
Camille is a registered architect in Texas. Settled in Austin with her family since 2003, she is an active leader in the community, including Leadership Austin, The Junior League of Austin, and The Austin Rowing Club. Currently she is serving as the 2019 Practice Commissioner for the AIA Austin chapter. Occasionally, she also teaches design studio at The University of Texas at Austin as adjunct faculty. Outside the office, Camille is an avid cook, and loves to host a good dinner party. She enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons, and rowing on Ladybird Lake with her crew.
ADA I. CORRAL, AIA
Prior to founding the firm with Camille Jobe, Ada Corral, AIA, designed a broad range of structures from civic to commercial. She honed her love of residential design on award-winning projects at Miró Rivera Architects. Through Ada’s influence, Jobe Corral Architects is becoming well known for the interplay between large-gesture conceptual design, elegant details and authentic materials.
Raised in Puerto Rico, Ada received her architecture degree from The University of Texas at Austin. She is a registered architect in the state of Texas. In addition to practicing architecture, Ada likes to teach design, where she does so from time-to-time at The University of Texas School of Architecture and at Austin Community College. A natural leader who was brought up to value service, Ada works professionally and personally to improve quality of life and the built environment in Austin. She is an alumnus of Leadership Austin’s Emerge program, serves on the Ballet Austin Board of Directors, and is a member of the City of Austin's Board of Adjustment.
Recently, Ada received the 2018 Austin Under 40 award for the category of Architecture, Engineering and Construction. She is the first woman to have received an award in this category since its inception more than a decade ago. An avid reader and a runner, Ada lives in East Austin with her husband and three kids in an award-winning mid-20th century house that she renovated and adapted for her family’s 21st century lifestyle. It was featured recently on the Preservation Austin Homes Tour.
