Jim Johnson Offers Perspective on Denver Architecture

Jim Johnson Offers Perspective on Denver Architecture

Our very own Jim Johnson, the founding partner of JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE, was recently profiled in the Denver Business Journal. In an open conversation, Jim shares how a love for hotels and architecture paved his career path, the ups and downs he faced in a fluctuating economy, and an exciting peek into future projects.

Offering a candid viewpoint on the current state of Denver architecture, Jim also reviews the overall quality of recently delivered multifamily projects, calling for a shift away from less-than-optimal design. For JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE, contextual design remains a priority when creating new experiences in Denver’s built environment.

In the article, Jim shares his excitement for the upcoming completion of the City Park Golf Course clubhouse (seen in the background of the article’s photo) which is slated for completion next year.

A prominent building with a highly refined design, the project offers generous creativity and design leeway. JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE designed the clubhouse as an inviting gathering place not just for golfers to meet and socialize before and after hitting the course, but also for the broader community to enjoy. A 3,800-square-foot meeting, dining and lobby space is connected by a series of movable walls to accommodate varying sizes of social functions such as family reunions, weddings and other events.

The architectural design is purposely timeless in its simplicity using stone, wood and glass as its primary materials. The project is part of a broader golf course redesign that will increase course yardage, create a driving range without netting, provide new sidewalks to improve connectivity, and deliver a seamless integration of storm water detention.
