It’s time for my… dun duhduh dunnnn… Designer Highlight of the Week! This week I’d like to introduce you to the work of Markay Johnson Construction.
In 1849, when talking of the Victorian Age, British critic and social commentator John Ruskin wrote, “When we build, let us think that we build forever.” Designer and Architect Markay Johnson, in true spirit of these words, builds works of art.
However, Markay Johnson is more than just an artist. His reputation for having an eye for the finest of details have earned him the respect of both his clients and his peers in the structural engineering and construction management communities.
His company, Markay Johnson Construction, follows the philosophy of taking the ideas and dreams of their clients and creating a plan and budget to achieve their design wishes. Their ultimate goal is to provide their clients with custom homes and commercial spaces that best reflect the owner’s personality and lifestyle. With the praise Mr. Johnson has received (paired with over 30 years of experience), it’s no wonder he has received acknowledgements such as recognition from the Greater Salt Lake Homebuilder’s Association and other industry watch groups.
Here are just some of the reasons why I adore Markay Johnson’s work–I guarantee his eye for design will leave you feeling inspired!
