The Team

 

DAVE JOHANNAS, AIA, NCARB

Dave has over 25 years of experience in architecture and interior projects that encompass many innovations in urban design such as mixed-use, high-end residential and retail, with a particular interest in historic preservation and adaptive re-use. With both public and private sector clients, he brings modern trends as well as his own personalized design philosophy to each project.

SCOTT O. CORWIN, ASSOC. AIA, PARTNER

Scott also works on the boards of the Princeton Association of Virginia and the AIA Richmond Chapter.

ANDY SCUDDER, AIA, LEED AP

Andy’s passion is creating and influencing the places where communities play, live, work and come together. Authenticity, harmony and efficiency are values that he incorporates in every project. He considers the client’s needs and wants as well as their inspirations to create beautifully balanced designs. He has volunteered with the James River Green Building Council Design Competition and was the President of the Museum District Association.

 

DOUGLASS C. KIEFFNER,  AIA

Beginning his career at a large, multi-disciplined firm in Wichita, Kansas gave Doug a wide knowledge of building types and systems, but by far his favorite to work with are historic renovations in urban settings. He enjoys the challenge of working in an existing structure and within the urban fabric. Doug has also chaired his neighborhood’s real estate committee and been involved in the Richmond Neighborhoods in Bloom program.

ANNE DURKIN

Anne has been practicing architecture for over 25 years and what continues to resonate for her are people, community and the fact that the earth continues to sustain us. Her approach to design is to build with respect to that by being sensitive to scale and material and to consider how innovation, form, space and detail can help create sustainable and beautiful spaces while challenging her creatively.

NATHAN C. MARCH, INTERN ARCHITECT

Nathan has always had an interest in architecture. From an early age he has been involved in the arts and architecture is what brought it all together for him. The quote “Space is the breath of art.” by Frank Lloyd Wright has always been what Nathan aspires to create through his design. 

Nathan has received his Bachelors of Architecture from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and joined Johannas Design Group in the summer of 2015. In his spare time he pursues music as a percussionist, watercolor painting, and jewelry designing.

Joining Johannas Design Group in the summer of 2016, Daniel pursues the challenge of creating design that reflects the city of Richmond and fosters its sense of community.
