Studying architecture after having received degrees in environmental science and landscape architecture has lead Kevin Johns to explore the nature and limits of architecture. A strong appreciation for quality materials and assembly techniques has been supported by professional associations with Rafael Vinoly Architects and I.M. Pei and Partners, Architects, as well as by practical experience in the construction industry.

During his tenure at I.M. Pei and Partners, Mr. Johns was involved with the geometric analysis and development of details for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. He also participated in the design development of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, of the Main Public Library in San Francisco, CA and of the John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse and Harborpark in Boston, MA. While with Rafael Vinoly Architects, Mr. Johns worked on such projects as a 360,000 SF new and renovated space for John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, and the Manhattan, a forty-eight story, 297,000 SF tower, also in New York.

In private practice since 1994, Mr. Johns first developed an association with one of the nation’s leading architectural sculpture studios. This association involved design and detail development on a variety of projects including the restoration of Shepard Hall at the City College of the City University of New York, the restoration of Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, DC, and the restoration of and addition to Casa Apava, a private residence in Palm Beach. Involvement with thematic design then lead to the detailing and development of ornamental material systems for Caesars Atlantic City Casino Block Restoration, for the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut and for Atlantis II, Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Today, with a much broader based clientele, project involvement includes restoration, rehabilitation, historic preservation and new construction of residential, academic, civic, cultural and commercial properties.
