Harmoni Designs. It’s a simple concept, really. It’s the Danish word for harmony. And harmony is exactly what we strive for when designing spaces for our clients to live & work in. Harmony at home, at work and at play. Harmony with self, with community and with the planet.
Why Danish, you might ask? Martin Johannessen, president & founder of Harmoni Designs, was born, raised and received his initial professional training in Denmark. He earned his Constructing Architect degree there before becoming a registered NCARB Certified Architect in the U.S.
Whether it’s a new home build or an existing structure needing a re-design, we create inviting spaces that put you and your family in a harmonious environment that compliments your lifestyle – all while maintaining a respectful awareness of the surrounding natural space. We strive for sustainable, eco-friendly building options that are healthier for us all in the long term. Being green is not simply about energy savings; it’s about having a healthy place to live & work, to harness your own potential creativity and productivity!
A master carpenter, Martin's training in old world styles produces cabinetry work that is built to last – a trait many of us envy about our parents’ generations of quality products. We use natural materials, much of it hard woods, that create a sense of quality, durability and a design sensibility that speaks to our desire for beauty from natural elements. We’ll choose walnut or beech over particle-board any day, thank you.
Harmoni Designs provides a diverse range of architectural, interior design & construction management services, for both residential & commercial projects.
But it’s no secret that Martin’s defining signature style is Danish Contemporary. To be clear, this is not the look of your grandparents’ 1970’s wood-paneled rec room. The style traces its inspiration from the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright’s early prairie houses as well as influences from Japanese architecture – both channeling the fluidity of nature between the interior and exterior of everyday spaces.
Danish Contemporary design blends natural light and dark woods to create dramatic, breath-taking internal spaces. The designs often allow for natural light and enhance the beauty of natural surroundings to bring a peaceful, calming environment to living & working spaces.
