As the backbone of the company, architectural services have historically focused around residential design in Aspen, but have expanded into commercial and larger, more complex projects including mixed-use, commercial and multifamily development. All size and level of design are approached with the same intensity, whether providing services for a small kitchen remodel, complete renovation of an existing residence, or a unique new home. Regardless of the scope or scale, DJA’s integrated approach remains constant.

Interior Design
Interior design is an integrated step in all David Johnston Architect’s projects. They have a network of outstanding interior designers both in Aspen and beyond, that they hand-select for the particular style or specifics of each project. DJA can also tailor their services to work directly with the client’s interior design team. Regardless, they acknowledge the important synergy of establishing a complete design team at project inception, so it is developed with a complete and comprehensive approach to all aspects of design, no matter how minute the detail.

Planning and Development
DJA successfully balances marketplace needs and construction realities with client goals, site specifications and regulatory constraints in one dynamic planning process. To do this, the team digs deep into site-specific analysis, community planning, and real estate market research to ensure the vision is both viable and sustainable. With this in mind, DJA’s experienced team leads projects in a direction that focuses on quality, sustainability, livability, social engagement, & client fulfillment. Each project utilizes the natural surroundings & characteristics of the site to shape and inform the planning.
