Jung received his Bachelor of Architecture from The Cooper Union. While at Cooper, Jung began his professional career working on high-end residential projects at Wettling Architects, and building professional architectural modelsat Kennedy Fabrications.
After completing his studies at Cooper, Jung joined Rafael Viñoly Architects and worked primarily on the Millennium Science Complex, a 270,000-squarefoot, LEED Gold rated, high-end research laboratory for Penn State University. He took this project from design through construction, eventually growing to manage half of the high end research laboratory’s program. During construction, Jung relocated to serve as one of the firm’s three on-site architects during construction. While at RVA, Jung also worked on the Loeb Residence, a multimillion dollar renovation of an existing Rafael Viñoly-designed residence. He also became a LEED Accredited Professional in 2009.
During the summer of 2010, Jung left Rafael Viñoly Architects to make the most of an opportunity to venture off on his own. He began work designing a 1,500-square-foot restaurant in Jersey City. Working closely with the clients, Jung designed the flagship restaurant for the Greene Chutney Co. which is now open for business. In the spring of 2012, Jung joined DXA Studio, a startup design and architecture firm. He began his work with DXA as an Intermediate Designer on 7 Harrison Street, a conversion of a cold-storage warehouse to high-end residential condominiums in TriBeCa. Jung served as a key member of the studio’s rapid growth, and soon was promoted to Project Manager. As project manager, he designed and managed multiple residential and commercial projects of various scales. Projects of note include a ground-up multi-family residence in Williamsburg, a full-floor gut renovation of a commercial office for a prominent NYC developer, and a marquee single-family townhouse in Brooklyn.
Jung joined JCER in the spring of 2015, coming on board as the Chief Design Director. He is currently lead designer on all hospitality projects, and is also pursuing development opportunities to allow the company to diversify its portfolio and showcase its abilities, both in design and construction.
