“All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space”

Phillip Johnson

Libraries. Churches. College Campus Facilities. Schools. Courthouses. Town Halls. Senior Centers.

…How do you design buildings with purpose and beauty, sustainability and suitability for the people who will use them?

We believe that great architecture is about more than harmony of form and function. It’s about more than thoughtful design and close collaboration with clients – which are crucial.

It is a relationship with communities – seniors and children, parents and students, librarians and readers, policemen and politicians. They make a building what it is. Not us.

Since 1996, Johnson Roberts Associates has earned a reputation for architecture that reinforces the sense of place of the community it serves. We strive to create buildings that are appropriate to the context they serve and the people who use them.

Our diverse portfolio includes public libraries, town offices, public safety facilities, court facilities, public and private schools, college and university facilities, churches, and historic preservation and restoration projects.

Give us a call. We’d love to tell you more about what makes us tick. In the meantime, you’ll get a pretty good idea here. From the Concord Free Public Library to the COMM Fire Rescue Station, Tufts University Interfaith Center and yes, even birdhouses — we design architecture for the people who use it.



Our staffing needs do change from time to time, so we encourage interested architecture professionals to send us qualifications and contact information.
