Dave Johnson received his Bachelor of Architecture from the School of Architecture at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island.
After graduation he worked in London, England and Newport, R.I. before spending 13 years at the prestigious firm of Hutker Architects in Falmouth and Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts. While there, Dave became an associate tasked with project design and risk management oversight.Responsible for many projects that were published during his tenure, Daveís design influence was sought for projects of multiple typologies/descriptions, from shingle style to modern interpretations of New Englandís agrarian vernacular.
Through his experience Dave has learned how to effectively lead a project through the design process from initial concept sketch to Design Development and construction.At home in the field as in the office, Dave has garnered a respect amongst the builders with whom he works.These relationships have become a centerpiece of Daveís approach to project leadership: a spirit of collaborative effort focused on bringing the clientís goals to fruition. We understand building because we are builders.
While embracing new construction technologies and techniques with every project, Dave strives to create architecture in harmony with its site and respective of its vernacular.A leader of energy efficiency efforts, projects under Daveís supervision have continuously performed above average and typically far exceed state mandated standards.
In 2007, Dave relocated to Camden Maine and founded the new firm s k a a l a , LLC.
