Our Firm

Johnston Architects is a highly experienced and talented team dedicated to providing comprehensive design and planning services for civic projects such as libraries and cultural centers, multi-family and mixed use developments, and custom homes.

Our Philosophy

Architecture is a language. Like any language, it has rules and conventions. Embedded in that language is the possibility of great beauty and expression. This is the language we practice and share with our friends.

Solving programmatic and functional problems is one of the basic elements of architecture. We work to excel at this fundamental level, and at the same time, realize possibilities that transcend the ordinary. It is here that the language of architecture can inspire and excite.
