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.

Thaddeus Stevens Place


Thaddeus Stevens Place

washington, dc

Thaddeus Stevens Place is a new ten-story commercial office building that will be completed in 2-18, located in the heart of downtown Washington, DC.



As part of the redevelopment of downtown parcel, Akridge is developing a LEED Gold certified, Class A, mixed-use office and retail building. The design is cohesive with the adjacent historic Stevens School, yet presents itself as a modern, 21-st century building. This building will become a neighborhood-defining structure in an area rich with history and culture.



Martinez+Johnson has designed a 110-foot tall office structure with off-street parking below. The street level will contain a main lobby and street level shops. As the new structure is adjacent to the redeveloped Stevens School, the design will undergo HPRB reviews, the Advisory Neighborhood Commission, the DC Preservation League, the Historic Preservation Office, and the DC Office of Planning.
