Johnson Dermatology


The physician/owners of a growing dermatology practice desired to create a new building to house their clinic and lease space for other professionals. The site, located at the intersection of a heavily traveled commercial corridor and the entry to an upscale residential development was formerly a family farm.


The material choices, building scale, and design elements are a result of design standards for the subdivision as well as the clinic’s location on a former farm. Coupled with the owner’s decision to pursue LEED Certification, MAHG came up with a building design termed “Modern Barn.”


The facility uses a mix of stone, metal, glass, and siding as well as geo-thermal heating and cooling and a rainwater collection system for toilet flushing. The project was awarded a LEED Silver Certification.
