With a professional working relationship spanning three decades, Gary F Martinez FAIA and Thomas E Johnson FAIA founded Martinez+Johnson Architecture in 1994 to bring their design sensitivities to institutional and cultural projects in urban locations. The 25-architect firm has since established an expertise in three main architectural areas – the restoration and adaptive reuse of historic structures, institutional buildings in urban areas and community settings, and the design and planning of performing arts venues.

Known for a thoughtful design approach to public facilities, M+J develops an intimate understanding of the needs of users, patrons, and operators destined to inhabit the projects of the firm. M+J looks to the future in their design aesthetic even when the context may be firmly rooted in the past and executes creative solutions to facilities both new and historic, where flexibility, ease of operation, and high but versatile performance characteristics are requisite. Venues express aspirational values and goals of the communities within which they are located, and at the same time conform to issues of economic value at the highest levels of environmental sustainability.

James G Reigle, AIA Leed AP

Senior Associate, Director of Historic Preservation

Mr Reigle has been involved with a wide range of project types requiring restoration and rehabilitation as well as new construction since he began practicing architecture in 1980.  His interest in historic preservation began with his service as a Peace Corps volunteer developing a historic building survey at the Sultanate of Oman. Since joining Martinez+Johnson Architecture over 15 years ago, he has served as a Project Manager on a number of projects, directing personnel and consultants; producing designs, contract documents, studies, surveys; and administrating contracts on many private and US government agency projects.  As M+J’s Director of Historic Preservation, he also serves as a global resource on most projects, leading survey teams and having responsibilities for the office’s preservation standards. For many years he has been a contributing member to the Association for Preservation Technology and is a frequent speaker before state and national organizations on aspects of preservation technology, specifically in the use and benefits of 2D and 3D laser scanning of existing structures in architectural projects. He has prepared many of the firm’s successful presentations to review agencies and stakeholder groups.
