Who We Are
Award Winning Cleveland Architect & Design Builder
Harmoni Designs and Harmoni Build. It’s a simple concept, really. Harmoni is the Danish word for harmony. And harmony is exactly what we strive for when designing spaces for our clients to live and 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 and Harmoni Build, 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 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 and techniques produces cabinetry and woodwork 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.
