Happy Clients

Working with Jim Johnson’s organized and motivated group of talented young architects is a creative pleasure for a developer like me who loves the creative process. The Denver Union Station project is one of the most complicated preservation projects in recent history. The Johnson team met every challenge.
Dana Crawford, Urban Neighborhoods

JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE is probably one of the top hospitality architects in the country. They understand what’s really important in our business. Functionality is as important as the aesthetic. They understand that, and do a great job from a space-planning and design perspective.
Walter Isenberg, Sage Hospitality Resources

JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE has been a partner with us on some of our most prestigious development projects. They are a developer's architect, who are experts in the relative product type, and understand the art of balancing exceptional architecture with a viable pro-forma. They are a relationship based firm that is incredibly loyal and passionate about their work. A great team to work with.
Dean Barber, McWhinney

They should change their name to Solutions Inc., that's what they provide.
Chuck Carefoot, Ryan Companies

We have been extremely pleased with the JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE team and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the firm on four projects in Denver. Their designs are thoughtful and creative while staying respectful and responsive to the needs of the client. They have produced high-quality work under tight deadlines and we have never had to question whether we can count on them to perform.
Matthew Schildt, Trammell Crow Residential
