Accolades

Our principal goal in designing residences, is developing comfortable homes that meet our client's lifestyle and budget.

Although primarily an Austin, Texas based architecture firm, we work throughout Texas, and we have designed homes in Angel Fire, New Mexico and Springfield, Missouri.

We are always thrilled when our client's appreciate our work, and their homes receive the attention that they deserve.


"My wife and I just completed the design process and were extremely happy with the value Elliot provided.
He of course has a great eye and design sensibilities, but is very focused on uses of space/minimizing dead space and overall plan efficiency.
He is direct and gave us candid feedback during brainstorming about how certain features or visions would translate as cost line items, which was a tremendous help to us in staying within our projected build budget. Elliot does not design in a vacuum or with magazine covers front in mind, so the value is unparalleled. Even so, the design is very aesthetically pleasing and each builder we showed the plans to commented on how well-done the layout was. We feel Elliot delivered as advertised."

"I am writing this letter because I feel the experience that we had with Elliot Johnson should be shared with others.
"After interviewing Elliot along with three other architects when we were getting started with this project to build two residents on a single lot in north central Austin, we felt that Elliot had the best understanding of the tricky and confusing Austin ordinances.
After deciding on Elliot to be our architect we met with him to explain exactly what we thought we wanted to do on this property. He listened to us carefully and asked good questions and then went with us to the lot to help evaluate it for any obstacles. After doing all of this Elliot showed us options that actually made more since and better use of the property for the end users.
Once we agreed on witch way to go Eliot had come up with sketches within a couple of days. We gave him our input and in the next week he came back with preliminary floor plan and front elevations. When we reviewed these we were extremely impressed with the room layout and flow, and the elevation looked great. We got back with a couple of minor changes and requests, and in a couple more weeks Elliot gave us a complete set of plans to review.

To sum things up, within five weeks of meeting Elliot we had a working set of drawings and a design that took full advantage of the lot and looked great. I have built a lot of houses but I have never worked with anyone more professional and gifted than Elliot Johnson.
I would highly recommend Elliot to all professional builders and home owners alike. I know that I will be working with Elliot with future projects and look forward to a long relationship."

Jeff Egger President Casa Rio Builders

At our first meeting with Elliot, My husband and I described what we were looking for in our floor plan and the uses of the various spaces. Elliot then made a basic sketch, on the spot, showed it to us and said , "like this?" What he sketched was exactly what we were thinking, and so began the design of our new home.
Elliot did an excellent job of listening to the elements that we wanted in the house along with the budget we set for the build. Several times he gently steered us towards more cost effective solutions which enabled us to keep the house in budget. At one point we considered editing out an exterior patio. Elliot insisted that we could not do that on a house like ours. We took his advice. It would have been a huge mistake to take out the patio. We have been in our new home for a year and a half and we love it! Thank you to Elliot for listening a designing our fabulous home!

Elliot was green long before green building was cool. He listened to our high level requirements ... visited our lot, sat down with us multiple times, and came up with a very unique porte-cochere design. We built a beautiful custom house with little to no surprises with his guidance along the way.
After 10 years in this house, we could not have been happier!

“Elliot is an amazing, creative genius. The home he designed for us was exactly what I hadn't envisioned, it was better than anything I could've imagined. We expressed our needs, some design elements we liked and he produced a "modern farmhouse" that any HGTV junkie would die for. What I love the most about our home design is the open floor plan, natural flow of the space and multifunctional rooms, elements necessary for a modern family lifestyle.
A few words that characterize Elliot: extremely professional, thoughtful, friendly, problem solver, truly listens to his clients and produces work fast.”

I’ve enjoyed working with Elliot on three homes so far and am slated for two more in the next 6-months. I’m new to custom home building and it’s been comforting to work with him. His design approach is organic, considering every aspect of the building site to ensure the right design and placement of each home. Elliot has many years of building experience and I trust his judgement and guidance.

“Elliot has been a huge asset for the projects we have collaborated on. His design abilities service a wide array of styles and his technical knowledge concerning building systems, and science are invaluable to design to one's budget. Elliot really strives to create an effective collaborative environment and truly works to bring out the ideal home that you could only envision. Highly recommended if you want a gorgeous home that functions beautifully.”
Eddie Thomas, Native

“When it came time to design my home on Lake Travis, Keith Husbands introduced me to Elliot Johnson. Elliot did a great job of listening, then translating, my ideas into the exactly what I had envisioned. My homebuilding experience with Keith was everything I expected. On time, on budget, consistent communication and quality throughout. I would highly recommend both Keith and Elliot”. ”
Dr. John Craven

“I have worked with Elliot for over ten years. His work is of the highest quality. I recommend him to anyone in need of an architect.”
