Johnson Oaklief Architecture and Planning was originally founded by Stevan Johnson in Seattle, 1987.
We have been an architectural consulting firm overseeing the design and development of medical clinics, institutional facilities, community centers, multifamily residential and mixed-use buildings, historic and landmarked places, commercial spaces, and master planning since the firm's inception.
JOA&P has always followed a core practice of maintaining the value of the long view of a building's future use – exploring all of the possibilities.
Our expertise rests in maintaining responsible stewardship of our client's vision by bringing this to fruition through time-tested architectural design practices and leadership in future sustainability.
Our main goal is to further establish a capacity to enliven and provide community-centered design opportunities that embolden the overall welfare of those inhabiting and utilizing the built environment.
Since Principal Steve Johnson's early work on Seattle's first Design Review Board, JOA&P has developed a keen sense of lasting construction techniques on historic properties in the Puget Sound Region such as: the renovation of The Camlin Hotel, Oddfellows Hall and Saint Edward Seminary, to name a few.
Competency in historic preservation has allowed JOA&P keen insight toward valuable distinctions in LEED practices through ongoing revisions to building code across multiple building types and uses.
Our forward-thinking practice continues to provide clients with a fine-tuned sense of administration in all aspects of project oversight – from the essential community involvement of a newly defined master plan to the patient-centered efficiency of a complex medical practice.
