Studio

At Johnsrud Architects we are dedicated to our projects, regardless of size, and understand the balance between specialized requirements, quality, cost, and schedule. Our knowledge has been refined and developed over our 20+ years in practice. It is integrated in our training of young architects. The imagination that our architects bring to a project is inspired by this knowledge. This is how we create architecture.

Our success is exemplified by our long-term relations with satisfied clients and project team members who recommend us to new clients. Such relationships ensure continuing opportunities for professional growth and personal rewards for everyone.

Sustainable Philosophy

At Johnsrud Architects our view of sustainability begins with respect for the limited resources of our planet. We follow a conservative approach to deliver successful designs that have a minimal impact on the world.

Our approach to all aspects of planning and design is to understand a client’s objective and find the best solution through sustainable means. From defining design criteria to selecting materials with specific characteristics, conservative or sustainable approaches and features are incorporated into the projects we design.

Our view of sustainability applies to the design of laboratories, production facilities, and even offices. In all projects, the flexibility to accommodate changing initiatives or requirements is considered so that the impact due to future changes is minimized. The reduction in materials and the effort – and the costs – to renovate facilities for new functions is a significant benefit to our clients and a primary feature of sustainability.

Johnsrud Architects is dedicated to our clients’ sustainability goals from proposal to post-occupancy. Our in-house LEED guidance and benchmarking tools identify potential opportunities and prioritize them while balancing costs and logistics.

Our method is to incorporate sustainable products into our specifications, challenge our engineers to implement energy efficient systems, and integrate green practices into our workflow. While certification is a worthy objective, projects need not be certified to reap benefits from the flexibility inherent in a sustainable design approach. Integrating sustainability at a project’s core is good for the world.
