Bruce has been designing environmentally sensitive, site responsive residential and commercial buildings since 1976. In 1990 he started Bruce Johnson-Architecture, PA in Asheville, North Carolina. The firm specializes in primary residences and vacation retreats ranging from small, rustic cabins and bungalows to large mountain camps and lodges.
Bruce’s projects can be found in Maine, Florida, the Caribbean, throughout North Carolina, and most recently China. Before moving to Asheville, Bruce was a principal at Innovative Design in Raleigh, where he designed energy conscious commercial facilities and residences. Bruce has a B.A. in Fine Arts from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a Masters of Architecture from North Carolina State in Raleigh, and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects, the American Solar Energy Society, and chairman of the Town of Biltmore Forest Design Review Committee.
In order to ensure that clients receive the highest level of personal service over the course of their projects, the firm has been kept small, and workflows scheduled accordingly. Bruce does all the design and construction consultation as well as supervising the construction documents.
