  • After nearly five years of combined design and construction, we're so proud to finally share this stunning lakefront home on Arcadia Peninsula.

A true team effort, our terrific JAl team included Daryl Johnson, Brian Pittman, Emily Haire, and many others! June Chamberlain Interiors brought this creation to life with a masterful application of finishes and furnishings along with special built-in accents like a white oak circular entry rotunda and custom library shelving by Clancy Custom Woodworking. Landscape design was by Rachel Beasley, and Arcadia Fine Builders crafted a custom home with unparalleled quality. And last but certainly not least, thank vou to an exceptional homeowner who allowed us to dream with them, test theories and express design ideas that may have at times 'pushed the envelope'

  • It’s been a busy December at Johnson Architecture, but we still managed to sneak away for an overnight Christmas party earlier this month! 

We’re so thankful for our vibrant team, their families, and the opportunity to celebrate another amazing year in each other’s company. And of course it wouldn’t be a JAI party without a mechanical bull…

  • Last week, the Lodge at Clayton Retreat won the AIA East Tennessee's People's Choice Award. 

The training and retreat venue is located on a 10-acre site within the boundaries of @Clayton’s 174-acre headquarters campus. The Lodge overlooks Mount LeConte and features multiple training rooms and a large dining room that expands onto a deep wraparound porch. The design also includes an outdoor pavilion with bar and restroom facilities, and a large beer garden and grilling pavilion nestled in a lighted tree grove. The site includes 19 cabins with 62 rooms, offering lodging for 62-124 visitors during events.

  • Say hello to our 2023 summer interns! 🌞😎

KiAna Queener has accepted a full-time interior design position with our firm after graduating in May from @utchattanooga, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in interior architecture and design and a minor in historic preservation. She graduated high school from the Chattanooga School for Arts & Sciences and ran cross country at @clevelandstatecc before completing her education at UTC. In the past, she has served as an after-school care and summer day camp counselor at the @ymcachattanooga.

Dexter Gladney Jr., the first recipient of the Johnson Architecture Scholarship at the @utkcoad, is spending his second summer at JAI. He assists in the design process for commercial and residential spaces across East Tennessee, conducts research and assists with project deliverables. He has served as a @utksga senator and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity president at the University of Tennessee.

Morgan Doherty also is spending her second summer with us. She is an architecture and design student at @utknoxville, where she is a teaching assistant. The Knoxville native is on track to graduate in May 2024 and spent the first five months of 2023 studying abroad in Rome. This summer, Morgan has been an integral design team member for an exciting new project we’re working on at Dollywood. Morgan’s interests outside of work include volunteering at @museknox, a children’s science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) museum. 

Each of you make the JAI team better!
