Brittany White Johnson, Principal Architect
AIA, NCARB, LEED GA
Having grown up in Utah, Brittany White Johnson always felt a strong connection to the desert and mountains that surrounded her. When she is not in the office, she enjoys getting out into nature with her husband, four adorable children and their dogs.
Brittany strongly believes that in design, it is important to respect the natural environment as a finite resource. When she earned her Masters Degree from the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Utah, she knew she wanted to use her work to create a meaningful connection between the built and natural worlds.
Today, that is exactly what she does! Brittany founded Trio Design as a woman-owned business in 2014, and has specialized in environmentally-friendly design ever since. She loves renovating existing buildings whenever possible, and works to incorporate sustainable practices into each project she takes on. These practices include paying attention to site orientation, selecting sustainably-sourced building materials, and using natural ventilation when possible.
A 5-Minute Interview With Brittany White Johnson:
What is your favorite part about being an Architect?
“I love the problem-solving aspect. My favorite part is the beginning of a project, when a client presents their problem or need, and I can solve that in a creative way. I am most at ease with a clean desk, a blank sheet of paper and pen, and a swirl of solutions in my mind.”
What has been your most memorable project so far?
“The most memorable so far had a fair amount of problem-solving. It was an adaptive reuse project – an outdated office building with a parking garage. It was in a great location, and we were able to help the new owner transform the space into a beautiful dance studio. It really gave the building new life! It’s been fun to see a space so well enjoyed, when it had been in a position where a new owner easily could have demolished and replaced it instead.”
When you’re not at work, how do you like to spend your time?
“I love to spend time with my family, traveling and exploring. We love to spend time in Utah’s beautiful weather and landscape, and I’ve always been drawn to the desert and the mountains. I also have a small farm at home, and usually end up spending time wrangling chickens or children on the weekends.”
